If you haven’t guessed already, Frog Prince and I don’t eat a lot of red meat. When we do, we want to enjoy it in something really tasty, but where the meat isn’t on center stage.
These steak and mushroom sandwiches provided us a hint of meat with a side of veggies and onions. We served them on whole wheat buttermilk bread buns and they were outstanding!
Steak & Mushroom Sandwiches – Adapted from A Family Feast
- 1/4 lb. beef, sliced thinly or into small 1/2 inch cubes
- 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
- 1 T butter
- 8 oz. fresh mushrooms
- 1/2 large Vidalia onion, sliced and sepearated
- Whole wheat dinner rolls
- Mozzarella or Monterrey Jack cheese
- Montreal Steak seasoning
Begin by sautéing the beef in 1/2 T butter along with 1/2 tsp. minced garlic and Montreal Steak Seasoning (to taste) until sides are seared. Then cook over medium-low heat in the skillet for 10-15 minutes until beef is cooked to your preferred doneness.
In a second large skillet, melt the remaining 1/2 T butter. Add in sliced mushrooms and onion. Sauté until liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated and the onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
Add the beef and mushroom onion mixture together.
Slice open your whole wheat bun, and top with cheese. Place under the broiler for 2 minutes, watching carefully to prevent burning. Cheese should be nicely melted at this point. If not, return the the broiler until melted.
Pile on the beef and onion mixture, and close the bun!
Serve warm and enjoy!
