Grilling Steak For Sandwiches

Grilling steak for sandwiches

Whether you are a meat lover or just want to try a new dish, grilling steak for sandwiches is the perfect way to make a delicious meal.

Steaks that are grilled too quickly become dry and overcooked so it is important to take the time to rest your steak after cooking to allow the juices to redistribute.

How to Grill

Grilling steak for sandwiches is a great way to elevate a simple meal into an indulgent experience. Ribeye is our favorite but we have also had success with flank, skirt or tri-tip steaks.

For the best results, get your meat to room temperature before searing – cold cuts are tough and won’t cook evenly.

Next, kick the heat up to 400°F for direct grilling – the steak will sear quickly and produce a nice crust on the outside.

Finally, let your steak rest for about 5 minutes – this will allow the juices to sink in and make the meat even more tender!

To assemble your sandwich, spread some of the Dijon-mayo on the bottom buns and divide 1/4 of the sauteed onions among the top buns. Then, place your grilled steak on the bottom half of the sandwich and smother it with some provolone cheese sauce. Lastly, add some arugula and fold the top buns over the top to complete this delicious meal!


When grilling steak for sandwiches, it’s important to choose a bread that will hold up to the meat and any toppings you might want to add. There are a few different types of bread that you can use to make your sandwich a success.

The best steak sandwiches are made with a high quality, tender cut of meat. Steaks that are marinated and grilled are especially tender.

A good quality steak will also be moist and juicy. These cuts will absorb the flavors in your marinade and sauce, allowing them to become even more flavorful when grilled.

Ciabatta is a perfect choice for steak sandwiches because it’s crisp without being too stodgy. But it can absorb lots of juice and turn soggy, so it’s important to keep this in mind when choosing ciabatta.

Hawaiian sweet rolls are another delicious option for a steak sandwich because they’re light and soft. You can top them with butter and honey or jam for extra sweetness.


When grilling steak for sandwiches, you need robust toppings to ensure your sandwich is sturdy enough to withstand the intense heat. A sharp white cheddar cheese is always a good choice, as well as aged Swiss or smoked Provolone.

You can also use a horseradish mayonnaise sauce that is slathered on both sides of the bun and topped with grilled onions, lettuce, and the steak. This will ensure your grilled steak sandwich is delicious and tender!

The best meat to make a steak sandwich is a rib eye or strip loin that has some marbling. Skirt steak and flank steak are other excellent options that are tender when cooked to no more than medium-rare and sliced thin.

Toppings to consider include roasted peppers, grilled onions, and caramelized mushrooms. Arugula is another good option as it adds a fresh peppery flavor that complements the steak. You can also top your steak sandwich with fig jam for an elegant touch!


There are many ways to make a steak sandwich, but one of the best is grilling it. This will keep the meat very juicy and tender while adding wonderful flavor to the sandwich.

Steaks, breads and toppings all work well together when grilled! The bread soaks up the juices and holds everything together.

You can use a variety of beef for a steak sandwich, but lean and tough cuts are best (such as skirt steak). Skirt steaks can be marinated or seasoned generously before cooking.

This recipe for a steak sandwich is simple to make with just a few ingredients. A garlic aioli, herbed spread, tomatoes and arugula round out this delicious sandwich!

Caramelized onions add a sweet and savory element to the dish. They’re a perfect foil for the richness of the steak and Herb Spread. Fresh minced chives in the horseradish sauce are also a great touch.
