The older I get, the more it seems I hate waste. Still, being the foodie that I am, I’m not that big on leftovers. So, after having friends over for dinner recently, I had a huge piece of sirloin steak left and was tempted to just throw it out. But it was a nice piece of steak and my husband had purchased it at a local butcher–which meant it was costly, too. Hmmm.
So I thought about making a great sandwich out of the steak. . . it was a fabulous hit! My husband declared it “restaurant quality.” Here’s the recipe.
Amazing Leftover Steak Sandwiches
- Left over steak, rare, sliced thin
- 2 T. Butter
- Small yellow onion, sliced thin
- Red bell pepper, seeded and sliced thin
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 4-6 oz. button mushrooms, sliced
- Worcestershire sauce
- Garlic mayo
- Provolone cheese slices
- Ciabatta sandwich rolls
Preheat broiler. Melt butter in small skillet. Cook onion, garlic, red pepper and mushrooms until caramelized. Split sandwich rolls and toast under broiler. Remove from oven. Put garlic mayo on bottom half of roll and top with steak. Pile onion mixture on top bun and top with cheese. Put under broiler until cheese bubbles.
I served the sandwiches with Parmesan oven baked fries. Awesome!!
