Steak and Potato Sandwiches

I feel like I’m suffering growing pains lately. I don’t know what else to call the uncomfortable realization I came to a few days ago, that truly, you can’t ever go home again. And by that, I mean it hit me just how much things change, and people grow up, grow apart, friends you thought you would have forever drift apart or change in ways you weren’t expecting. Sometimes it’s for the best. Other times, it stings and you try to cling to the last vestiges of what once was, but can never be again. I had an unsettling moment like that, and while I nursed my hurt feelings, I did what I usually do, and turned to my immediate family and food. I didn’t go on an ice cream binge, but I wanted some junky comfort food, so I made some Steak and Potato Sandwiches:

Steak and Potato Sandwiches - TramplingroseLast week, we had dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings, and on their limited-time only menu, they had a steak and cheese “griller” (a quesadilla, if you will) that also contained French fries in the sandwich. Except for the onions, it looked really good, but unfortunately for me, they happened to be out of French fries that day. And since there wasn’t really any point of trying the griller without the fries, I opted for my usual order of boneless wings. But I kept that sandwich in the back of my mind.

Steak and Potato Sandwiches - TramplingroseI’m a sucker for sandwiches that include fries. Like those from Primanti Bros., or Chip Butties (after finding out just what a chip butty was). Add in meat and cheese, and it’s practically perfect! And after my sad epiphany, it was just what I needed. Since I didn’t know exactly what (besides meat, cheese, onions and fries) Buffalo Wild Wings puts in their steak and fries griller, I just came up with my own thing. It worked.

Steak and Potato Sandwiches - TramplingroseI will admit, though, it was a little dry. I’d thought about making a cheese sauce instead of just topping them with cheese, but I got lazy. I also thought after I’d started eating mine that it might’ve been a good idea to toss the steak strips in some steak sauce or some other sauce. Perhaps next time!

I figure that since the bambino ate half of one without much prodding, it’s a keeper!

  1. I hear ya, Rachel. Change can be SO hard. BWW was out of fries?! The horror. I bet your version is waaaaay better anyway. I love making quesadillas (or grillers?) because I can personalize them how I want. My family is a huge condiment family, so I could see the cheese sauce for dipping being a big hit!
    • Sometimes I like change, but more often than not, it throws me off balance! Boo! Ah, well, how else do we learn and grow, right? And yeah, I know. How do you run out of fries? Crazy. I think I might re-do these and try them again with making the cheese sauce and tossing the steak in some sauce too.
  2. I used to work at Buffalo Wild Wings while this limited time flip was available. It was truly my favorite! I would like to give you the ingredients for it! ration to your liking. it was: -thin sliced sirloin steak -shredded mozzarella cheese -shoestring fries -southwest ranch (signature ranch from Wild Wings - comes with onion rings and i have not found it at Wal-Mart nor HEB [for the Texas Folks]) -buffalo Wild Wings Honey BBQ signature sauce all served over a -10" flatbread folded in half and cut into four quesadilla triangles. *oh i left out the chopped onions! it was a no-no for me!
