Steak Sandwich

"Friday night delight....I like this with an ice cold, Grey Goose martini. From Firefly, a bistro-type restaurant in Chicago."

Ready In:




  • Heat one tablespoon of the butter and one tablespoon of the oil over medium and add both types of onion and a little salt and freshly ground black pepper; cook, stirring, until crispy and brown, about 15 minutes, then set aside.
  • Mash together the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, the cheese and mustard and set aside.
  • Rub the steaks with salt and pepper; heat the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil in a medium cast-iron skillet over high heat; when very hot, add both the steaks and cook without disturbing for 2 minutes; flip and brown the other side for 2 more minutes- this will give you medium doneness but still pink meat.
  • Place the steaks onto the roll bottoms, top each with half the butter mixture and then smother with onions; top with the roll tops and eat with ice cold, alcoholic beverages on a Friday evening.

    My son didn't like it. He saw the package of blue cheese on the counter, and refused to eat it. My wife and I loved it however.

    wow!! luschious!!! The onions were outstanding, beautiful caralmelsized onions and the blue cheese and butter, delicious!! Even the cooking method was perfect. Just a wonderful supper, even if it was Sunday not friday and we had a little alcholic beverage too; a hearty red wine was perfect with it. Thanks for sharing a really enjoyable Sunday Supper.

    Sweet bajeezus... these were awesome. We had a father's day feast with these. We used marinated tri-tip and used the blue cheese/butter lusciousness as a spread on our rolls. The onions added such an amazing compliment to the sandwich. Thanks for an easy, fantastic recipe!!! This is an absolute do-again for us!

    Really really good! The changes I made were to leave the dijon out of the gorgonzola butter. Instead I mixed it with an equal amount of sour cream, slathered onto toasted roll topped with shredded romaine. The crispy fried onions are fantastic :)
