Steak Sandwiches

One of my favorite recipes due to its simplicity and quick preparation time.

Serves 4


  • Steak - ~1lb Grass-fed filet, ribeye, sirloin, sirloin tip, new york strip, flat iron or any other steak cut.
  • Salt and Pepper to season steak
  • 1Tbsp high heat oil if cooking steak in pan (grape seed is my preference)
  • 4 Buns - Pretzel, Kaiser, Ciabatta or your favorite roll
  • Mustard or Mayo or Aioli
  • Optional
  • 1 Medium to Large Yellow Onion Sliced thinly
  • 1-2 Tbsp of Butter


  • Cook steak to desired temperature
  • For Methods of Prepping, Cooking and Finishing the Steak see "Cooking the Perfect Steak" blog post. 
  • After steak is rested slice across the grain into about 1/4 inch thick slices
  • Toast the buns and add 3-4 slices of steak per bun.
  • Serve with a good mustard (horseradish, stone ground, dijon, etc).  Can also serve with mayo, aioli or if you must steak sauce :(


  • Caramelized Onions (this takes roughly 45 min so start first)
  • Melt butter in medium frying pan
  • Add sliced onions and stir occasionally until they reach a deep golden brown color
  • Add salt to taste
  • Serve on top of steak in sandwich
  • Optionally and for a much faster preparation you can just saute the sliced onions in butter or olive oil until soft.
