What manly food do we like to eat while watching football games?
This Steak Sandwich with Caramelized Onions and Mushroom Gravy is perfect.
Casey, my oldest son, always has suggestions for what to eat while watching football games. This steak sandwich is one of his favorites. The hoagie roll is toasted and cheesy. The steak is sliced super thin and tender. The Onions are caramelized, and both the onions and mushrooms are smothered in a rich, tasty gravy. It is the best steak sandwich.
Messy but Delicious
I will honestly admit it can be very messy, especially if you pile on the onion and mushroom gravy. You can add a reasonable amount of gravy and pick this sandwich up fine. If you love this gravy as much as we do, you will enjoy piling it up high on top of the steak. If you do this, the gravy will be running all down your arms. You may need to use a fork. Using a fork is how we eat this steak sandwich most of the time unless we have company.
Living in the South, SEC Football
My husband, myself, and our children were born all over the South including Tennessee, Georgia, and my home state of Alabama. We have also lived in Florida, Louisiana, and our current state of Arkansas. So, football gets pretty intense in my home. You may wonder who I cheer for. I started not to tell you because I do not want to lose any followers, but ROLL TIDE ROLL and GO SAINTS GO!
No matter what football team you cheer for, you can enjoy watching football even more with this delicious Steak, Onion, and Mushroom Gravy Sandwich. This Steak Sandwich is always on Casey’s, “Can we have this?” list. Other foods we enjoy while watching football games include Bison Sliders, Bison Steak, Chili, Chili Dogs, Turkey Chili, Oven Cheeseburger Sliders, , Gumbo, Crab and Corn Bisque, and more.
