There is nothing like a perfectly cooked steak on the grill. My son and husband could eat that for dinner every night of the week. Sometimes, though, I like to change things up a bit. So when I saw a TV show the other day talking about a local restaurant and its best selling sandwich which was a grilled steak sandwich with onions and horseradish mayo, I knew I had to try it at home for myself. This sandwich consists of a grilled steak sliced paper thin and topped with cheese, caramelized onions, and horseradish mayo. The smoky flavor of the steak pairs perfectly, of course, with the cheese and the sweet onions, but the horseradish mayo is what really takes it over the top adding a great flavor punch to the sandwich. My family all agreed this was a keeper.
To make this yummy steak sandwich, first start by slicing three large onions (I used Vidalia) into very thin slices. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat.
Add the onions.
Saute on low for about 20-25 minutes, stirring often, until the onions are golden brown and soft, making sure to keep the temperature low so you do not burn the onions. Add salt and pepper to taste and cook for another minute or two. Remove from heat and set aside.
Meanwhile, place 1/4 cup of horseradish sauce and 1/2 cup of mayonnaise in a small bowl and mix to combine. Set aside.
You can find horseradish sauce in the condiment aisle of your grocer store.
Preheat your grill. Pat dry two to four sirloin steaks, depending on the size of your family. It is about one steak per sandwich. Season generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Grill about five to six minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the steak and how you like it done.
When cooked, allow the steaks to cool a bit and then slice the steaks really, really thin.
Slice it as thin as you can get it.
Preheat the broiler of your oven. Spread prepared horseradish mayo on French bread or sub rolls. Place steak slices on the bread or rolls.
Top with American cheese.
Place under the broiler for one to two minutes to allow the cheese to melt, careful not to burn. Top with caramelized onions and serve.
