Steak Sandwiches With Crispy Onions

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by lazyme

This is a great way to use up leftover beef. I've never been able to get the onions crispy, they turn out more like caramelized onions. But still very good. From Gourmet magazine.

Wonderful tasting sandwich. Wasn't sure if I was going to like it but it was delicious. I fried the onions and mushrooms together in butter. I used 4 Steak-Ums for 1 sandwich and served on a hamburger bun. This one will be going into my Sandwich cookbook to make over and over.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet cook the onions in the butter and the oil over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until they are crisp and golden and transfer them with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.
  2. In the fat remaining in the skillet cook the mushrooms and the garlic over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms begin to turn brown and transfer the mixture to a plate.
  3. Add the broth to the skillet and deglaze the skillet, scraping up the brown bits.
  4. Add the cream, the ketchup, the Worcestershire sauce, and the mustard and stir in the mushroom mixture and the steak slices.
  5. Divide the steak mixture among the bottom bread pieces, sprinkle it with some of the onions, and top the onions with the remaining bread pieces.
