WHAT STEAK TO USE FOR STEAK SANDWICH

It’s best to use a tender cut for this recipe. Rib eye, sirloin steak, T-bone steak and strip steak are all great options. My personal favorite is sirloin steak for its rich flavor, plus it’s a budget-friendly option.Sirloin steak seared to medium-rare, and resting on a cutting board

You can simply pan sear the steak with salt and pepper, following the complete instructions in my Pan Seared Sirloin Steak post. I like to cook the steak medium-rare with a temperature of 130°F (54°C). Be sure to let the seared steak rest for 5 minutes for maximum juiciness.

Cut it thinly against the grain, and don’t worry if the meat shreds somewhat as it’ll be super-delicious inside the sandwich!

WHAT KIND OF BREAD TO USE FOR THIS RECIPE

My favorite bread for this steak sandwich recipe is ciabatta, but you can use other crusty breads like French bread (baguette), sourdough, Turkish bread or even hoagies. I like to toast the bread with butter for extra flavor.

Prep Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 15 mins
Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pound sirloin steak
  • salt and pepper , to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 large onions, peeled and sliced
  • 4 ounces arugula , or other greens
  • Mustard
  • 4 Ciabatta bread
  • Butter

Instructions

Seared Steak

  • Start by seasoning the steak generously with salt and pepper. Heat up a large cast iron skillet over high heat for 1 minute.
  • Add 1 tablespoon oil and wait until it’s shimmering before adding the steak.
  • Fry for 2 minutes and then flip over. Fry on the other side for 3 more minutes until the steak mostly browned on the outside and rare in the middle.
  • Remove steak to a cooling rack and let rest for 5 minutes, then slice thinly.

Caramelized Onions

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add onions and cook for about 10 minutes, until deep golden and softened, stirring frequently. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Steak Sandwiches

  • Remove from oven and top the bottom half of bread with arugula and caramelized onions.
  • Place a layer of the thin steak slices on top, and spread mustard on top.
  • Season with more salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Cover the sandwiches with the top half of the bread.

Notes

  • Let the steak rest at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking for the best results
  • Make sure to let the steak rest for about 5 minutes so that the juice can redistribute before cutting.
  • Cut the steak against the grain into thin slices.
  • To caramelize onions properly, make sure to have a single layer of onion slices in the pan so they don’t steam. The onions should be very soft with golden brown color, yet not mushy.
