1/1 Photo of Steak-Lovers' Leftovers (Sandwiches)
Amazingly enough, there was a little bit of beef tenderloin left after Christmas dinner last year. Looking for a way to stretch less than a pound to make a full meal for 4, I found this recipe from the Feb., 1990, issue of Gourmet Magazine. Everyone just lapped it up! While the quality of meat is obviously a big factor, you can use anything from tenderloin to grilled flank steak to deli roast beef with acceptable results.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus extra for bread
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup thinly-sliced onion
- 3/4 cup thinly-sliced mushroom
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 3/4 cup beef broth
- 1 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 3 tablespoons catsup
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 lb grilled steak or 1 lb cooked roast beef, thinly-sliced
- 1 loaf long Italian bread
- 1Heat 2 tablespoons butter and olive oil in large skillet over medium heat; add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden.
- 2(Note: The original recipe says to cook until"golden and crispy". I've never managed to get them crispy, but they're delicious just caramelized.) Using a slotted spoon to allow excess oil to drip back into the skillet, remove onion slices to paper towels to drain.
- 3Reduce heat to moderately low and add mushrooms and garlic to skillet.
- 4Cook in remaining oil, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms begin to turn brown; transfer mixture to a small bowl.
- 5Pour broth into skillet and deglaze, using a wooden spoon to scrape up all the brown bits on the bottom of the pan.
- 6Add cream, catsup, worcestershire and mustard.
- 7(The recipe doesn't say to, but at this point I let it simmer a little while to reduce sauce and thicken a bit.) Cut bread loaf in half horizontally and butter each half lightly.
- 8Cut each half into 4 equal pieces and toast in oven, buttered side up.
- 9Stir sliced beef and mushroom mixture into sauce and heat thoroughly.
- 10Place beef slices on bottom slices of bread, spooning desired amount of sauce over each slice.
- 11Sprinkle caramelized onions over each sandwich and place other half of bread slices on top.
