My Ultimate Steak Sandwich

Happy Friday Night!

I’m in need of some indulgence after a hard week, and I think my ultimate steak sandwich is the only cure (and a glass of rosé of course). I’ve decided to put my feet up and chill out tonight with a movie, and my lovely husband.

I think this is a perfect dish to end the week. I would definitely spend the time over the caramelised onions, as they need a little time to really ramp up the flavour.

Obviously, this isn’t one for the babies, just the grown ups! 😉

1 Brown Onion, sliced into rounds
20g Butter
2 tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp soft Brown Sugar
2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
2 Sirloin or Rump Steaks, about 1cm think (pound them down with your fists or a rolling pin between some baking parchment if they are not already 1cm thick)
2 tbsp. American Mustard
4 Slices of Sourdough
Salad, to serve


  1. Add the onion, 10g butter and 1 tbsp. olive oil into a pan on a medium to low heat. Allow to cook for a few minutes until the onions just begin to soften. Add the sugar and vinegar and stir through. Allow to cook on a low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Cut off the fat from steak and add it to a cold pan. Turn the heat up and move the fat around the pan until the juices have all come out. Remove any left over bits of fat that haven’t dissolved.
  3. Add the rest of the butter and olive oil to a pan and turn the heat up. Add the steaks, brushing with mustard on each side before turning, then frying for a couple of minutes on each side, to cook to your liking.
  4. Take the steaks off and rest them wrapped in foil for 10 minutes. Then slice the steaks into thin strips.
  5. Warm the sourdough through either in the oven or your toaster, then add the salad on top of one side. Top with the steak and onions.
  6. Finish with a beverage of your choice!
