Sliced Steak Sandwich Recipe

Prep Time15 mins

Total Time45 mins
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 servings


  • 2 large yellow onions
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 slices bread your choice of white, whole wheat
  • leftover steak sliced into thin strips
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Slice the onions into rings and separate the rings.
  • Heat a fry pan large enough to hold the onions over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of butter the onions and slowly cook (sweat) over medium-low heat until honey colored.
  • When the onions are done, make the "toast points". You can toast the bread in a toaster, in a frying pan or in the oven. To toast in the oven, pre-heat the oven to 350° F. Cut the crusts off the bread and discard unless you can use them for something else. Cut each slice of bread into 4 triangles and place on a baking sheet.
  • Melt the other two tablespoons of butter and brush some on one side of each piece of bread. Reserve the rest of the melted butter for assembly.
  • Toast the bread points in the oven for a couple of minutes until golden brown. Flip and toast the other side for another minute. Do Not Burn!


  • To assemble, plate four bread points on each plate. Top with a slice of steak, then drizzle a little of the reserved melted butter over the top of each piece.
  • Top with a forkful of caramelized onions, season with salt and pepper and serve.


We served the sandwiches with couscous and steamed broccoli but if you prefer, French Fries go well with this meal. That's it. Simple but delicious.
I must confess, I had some leftover mushroom demi glace sauce from the previous night that I substituted with the melted butter but you're still going to love it with the melted butter alone.
