This delicious sandwich is taken to new heights with the flavorful pesto. You usually have to eat a steak sandwich with a knife and fork, but this is a great way to skip those pesky utensils!

Top Review by Baby Kato

I enjoyed this tasty steak sandwich chef. The meat was lovely, perfectly cooked, tender, juicy and flavorful. I served the steak and cheese on a cabiatta bun, which worked really well as a bed for the pesto. Thanks for sharing your recipe and good luck in the contest.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the steak into very thin strips. The easiest way to do this is to place the steak in the freezer for 15-20 minutes first so it’s easier to handle.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. When oil is hot, add steak to pan and cook while stirring frequently. Salt and pepper to taste. Remove steak from pan when you achieve desired doneness and keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, add all pesto ingredients, except for the olive oil, to a food processor and process until smooth. Drizzle in olive oil. Be sure to taste it and add salt and pepper to your liking.
  4. Cut rolls in half and spread pesto inside. Place a cheese slice on the top and one on the bottom. Add hot steak, close buns and serve.
