Grilled Steak Sandwiches
Steak sandwiches are a great way to use up leftover steak. They’re quick and easy to make and are a perfect lunch or dinner.
Using a steak like ribeye or skirt that has some marbling will keep the meat juicy and add flavor. A good cut of bread, like ciabatta, will help hold everything together and soak up the juices.
Aioli is an excellent condiment for these sandwiches. Whisk all ingredients together and season to taste.
Caramelized onions are another essential ingredient for this recipe. They’re a great addition to the sandwiches because they add sweetness and help cut through the richness of the meat.
Before grilling, steak should be seasoned generously with salt and pepper. It’s also important to let the meat come to room temperature, so it cooks evenly and remains juicy.
