    I think your description is different from what I think of. When I think of steak sandwiches, what comes to mind is from my area of SW Ohio and MIami Univ as well where I went to college. A ground steak, or hamburger steak, elongated, placed on a sandwich roll but cut horizontally and the meat is covered with pizza sauce and cheese.

        Or maybe one of them mystery-meat chicken-fried steak/salisbury steak/meatloaf parmesian/etc. kind of things. The slaw may be North Carolina, but disguising fried/baked/stewed, etc. ground-up meat with something is kinda generic? (Apologies for the / and etc.)

            This sounds revoltingly like what was often served to me in the Navy and called, even officially I think, "sh_t on a shingle". That was a variation on creamed chip beef but used ground beef rather than chipped beef. The real old salts just dumped a lot of Tabasco on it and downed it.

            Although I always assumed military cooks invented this, a lot of military food is based on Southern cooking since such a high proportion of the military is of Southern origin and so it could have come from NC (and if you're from NC, don't get mad at me for saying so--you live in one of my favorite states and one I called home for 4 years myself).
