This steak sandwich with caramelized onions is one of my family’s absolute favorite sandwiches for a weekend lunch or weeknight dinner. I first saw this recipe made by The Pioneer Woman. The first time I made it my son declared it a keeper and said, “I could eat this for lunch every weekend”. Well, we don’t have it every weekend but more like every few weeks.
There are some important things to note. The caramelized onions make this sandwich. This is not a process to rush or skip. You risk burning them and having to start over. Good caramelized onions should take about 15 minutes. I always use my case iron skillet over medium-low heat. Melt the butter than add the onions and salt them.
Another step not to be skipped, or rushed, is toasting the hoagie rolls. I purchase rolls in the bakery at my favorite supermarket. By all means, use your favorite rolls. This sandwich would be delicious on French or Cuban bread as well. If the rolls aren’t sliced, cut them all the way through. Butter cut side and toast, butter side down, until golden. When serving place meat on bottom half then top with onions. Cheese is optional. I don’t put it on my sandwich by my husband likes a slice of provolone.
