BBQ sauce? I thought the sandwich in question was slathered in an Italian-style tomato sauce.

I've never seen an Italian steak sub. with barbecue sauce. The only thing Italian in that rtecipe is the Italian seasoning,which might well be drowned out by the strong barbecue sauce recommended.Most Italian subs would have either fried peppers and onions or a tomato sauce base. I've also seen them with potatoes like an Italian hot dog....but barbecue sauce,NO!

Yes, I know the BBQ sounds weird but, that's the secret ingredient. If you doubt it, try the recipe.

No on the Q-Sauce, at least the way I've had them.

I could see how it might not be bad, but for me anyway it's a spicy (depending upon your definition, I don't find it spicy at all !!) marinara style sauce and a white Italian cheese.

I'll have to ask a buddy of mine that used to work there for his Aunt, exactly what type of cheese Stack's used/uses.


Later all !!

The recipe is based on samples that my wife and I got years ago from a place called Eaton's on the corner of 10th and Kansas Ave. I think the name of the place has since changed but, the menu is still the same. Great pork tenderloin sandwich too. The BBQ sauce for the KC Italian Steak Sandwich is a definite must and absolutely no cheese!

Hey all, I used to work at Wimpey Burger before they closed and their Italian Steak sauce did indeed contain BBQ sauce.  It wasn't straight BBQ sauce but just an ingredient in the sauce which was an Italian red sauce.  Unfortunately I don't know the recipe, but I can state for sure there BBQ sauce was an ingredient.
Now, I don't think any other Italian steak I've had is made the way we made them there, but they were definitely good. 

Hope this helps

It's a Breaded beef tenderloin/pounded steak either fried or deep fried, covered with a Spicy Marinara sauce.
In Chicago, they are called breaded steak sandwiches; to my knowledge, they somehow skipped right over St. Louis.
A Steak Milanesa, if you can find a Mexi place that serves one, is the same thing with out the Marinara sauce.

Here is my version that omits the onions and green peppers in favor of roasted red peppers.  
 
Sicilian Steak Sandwich

Tenderized bottom round
Sliced provolone cheese (I sometimes use Swiss)

Italian bread crumbs
Flat leaf parsley
Grated Pecorino Romano cheese
S & P

Tenderize steak
Dip in egg wash and the above seasonings.

Grill steak, skillet or flat top.
Grill roasted red peppers.
Add roasted peppers on top of grilled steak(still on flat top).
Add cheese slices on top of peppers.
Cover and steam cheese.

Place on garlic butter toasted hoagie bun.

Serve with Marinara on the side for dipping.

BR

Foodlore has it that the original Cascone brothers introduced this item to the KC area around 1938.  There are still plenty of places to find them.
 
I recommend:
 
Harold's (Dairy Supreme) Drive In
1337 Admiral Blvd
Kansas City, MO  64106
 
Or you could try these:

BTW, Mr. Voss, perhaps you remember me years ago when some folks called me Stretch.

Bill,
 
Sounds great to me.  Glad to stumble upon you on these here Internets.  I am a professional reference librarian now.  Still into the music, etc, though.

Music Exchange Stretch?
Other Italian Steak places were Norm's Zesto, Teresa's, Stack's, and Wimpy Burgers.

Pauls Drive-In was at 7th & Kansas Avenue near the
Paul Bunyan Burger(long gone)
He moved 35+ years ago to 10th & Osage just off Kansas Avenue.
I know they still do Pork Tenders and Beef Tenders
I would assume they still do an Italian Steak.

 
 
 
I came across this thread while doing a search for Paul Bunyan Burgers in KC.  I loved their burgers and their tacos as a kid.  I was starting to think I was the only person that remembered them.

 We enjoyed a sandwich lunch last weekend at Freddies Pizza and Deli in Cicero, IL. Meeting up with Buddy Roadhouse and ChiTwnDnr made the lunch stop on our weekend trip all the more pleasant.
 
At Freddies, I had the Hot Beef and Peppers Sandwich, pictured here. It was very good although the 'Au Jus' soaked up the bread a lot!
 

 
Here it is in the fully assembled mode!
 

 
Janet ordered the Italian Sausage with the red Marinara Sauce. it was Great !!

 
These, with some Gelato and Italian Ice made for a very nice lunch that day! Here's the Italian Ice Cup...Half Cherry and Half Blackberry. A real refreshing treat!

I'm tickled that there are still people looking for a good Italian Steak like the one Wimpey's  used to serve. 
 
I'm happy to report that they serve an EXCELLENT Italian Steak at Jim's Tamales and More (the steak is part of the "and more"), at Winner Road and Arlington in what I think is probably Independence (Winner Road/highway 24, east of I-435).  I found this joint after I discovered that they still, obviously, make the original tamales that used to be sold off pushcarts in KC.  The tamales are still wonderful.
 
Haven't lived in KC for nearly 40 years, but the Italian Steak and definitely the tamales make it worth the trip.

I grew up in KC and moved to Colorado in 2000.  In fact I grew near Wimpy Burgers at 77th and Troost.  I remember getting fabulous Italian Steak Sandwiches there.....hamburgers too.  I have been looking for something that compares to the Wimpy Italian Steak Sandwich in Colorado to no avail.  We used to get them at the Humdinger drive in over on Independence Blvd but then that dried up too.  Is this just a KC sandwich?  I sure miss them and the 70's at Wimpy Burger.

I grew up in South KC and ate at Wimpy's, Allens Drive, Burger Basket (On 75th Prospect) Ray's, Winsteads, NU WAY's and Strouds to mention a few. I've been trying to find out the original owners name who had Wimpy's on 77th and Troost. I too am a big fan of his Italian Steak Sandwich. Last I knew of the family moved it to OPKS after he passed. But I'm still in seach of that same Italian Steak Sandwich. I'm also a hugh fan of a good breaded pork tenderloin like you could get at Ray's (on either Gregory or 63rd and Prospect) I still get back to KC occassionally as I have family still there. If anyone remembers the original owners name for Wimpy's let me know and I'll see what I can do to track down the mystery of the steak sandwich.
 
I'm also trying to find anyone that remebers or knows anything about a resturant called Dinkeldorfs Deli that was on about 71st and Mission in a smaller outdoor shopping center in the mid 70's.
 
Thnx

Thanks. 
  
 

  
  
  “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today” or an Italian Steak Sandwich :^D
 
Wimpy's is one of those iconic places that we would like to travel back in time to. Growing up in KC and hanging out in the areas from Fairyland Park, The Waldo Theater, Subway in the Country Club Plaza under (Wolfbrothers I think) and Westport where there was Mario's known for their Meatball Grinders. Another place we frequented late at night was the Wornall Restaurant about 80th and Wornall Rd in the Waldo area. Another hamburger joint around 83rd and Wornall in an A Frame Building in the late 60s was called Griffs Hamburgers it's my understanding that they are still in business in CO, LA, TX & NM
 
 
 
Another that has been forgtten in the Country Club Plaza is Sydneys Drive-In. Everyone seems to always mention Winsteads, Waids and Maid-Rite which are good as well.

Hey southkc, I worked at the original Dinkeldorf's Deli in the defunct River Quay in the mid '70s. They opened another one, (short lived) at 103rd and Metcalf. There wasn't a Dinkeldorf's in PV as I recall.
I can't even begin to tell you how many Big Mothers and knish I made. Among other things.

The Subway under Woolf Brothers was the retail part. The restaurant was called Lunch. Bonnie Winston was the consultant and later was the brains behind the Prospect of Westport.

No Photo this time, but our Thursday night supper while on the road in GOSHEN, IN was Liver and Onions (Delicious) for me and an Italian Pepper Steak Sub/Sandwich for Janet. The only differences between her sandwich in Indiana, and the one I photo'd in Freddies, Berwyn, IL (above in this thread) was --
1. the Size-- while not a real big Sub Roll the bread was a roll almost twice the size of Freddies.
2. The cheese was on top of the steak and Peppers and Onions, then broiled just long enough to melt that Provolone beautifully!
OH Yeah our dinner was at Tony's Italian Grill on IN Rt 4 in the heart of downtown GOSHEN,IN.
