Simple Steak Sandwiches

This is barely a recipe - more of a meal inspiration... Tonight we needed a meal that would come together quickly since we had carpooling duties right at dinner prep time.  I always have chicken and beef in the freezer, and had pulled some sirloin steaks out last night to thaw.

We purchase beef from a local farmer in bulk twice per year, so we get a great price on a high quality product.  We don't eat more beef than we did before, but we don't feel like certain cuts are only for "special occasions" anymore, either!

I had decided on steak sandwiches, and grabbed a bagged salad mix, a bunch of carrots, our favorite cheese and some bread on the way home from school.  I had some potato wedges in the freezer to have as a side, too.  As soon as we got home, I would be able to throw it all together within 30 minutes.


Simple Steak Sandwiches

4 rolls or a loaf of bread of your choice
1 lb. Sirloin steak or cut of your choice
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1-2 tsp. butter
Cambozola cheese (the kids LOVE it - we all do)
salt and pepper for seasoning

Preheat the oven and bake your potato wedges if you're doing them (we like the Alexia Oven Fries with Rosemary & Garlic).  In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter, and add sliced onion.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook until onion is browned and starting to caramelize.  Lower heat and stir occasionally so they don't burn.   Heat your grill, season steaks with salt and pepper and grill to your liking.  We're a medium kind of family.  Let the steaks rest a few minutes.  I threw the bread in the oven for a few minutes to warm it up, but don't let it get too crispy.  Split the rolls, and build the sandwiches with slices of steak, a thick spread of Cambozola cheese, pile on some onions, and then serve.  SO. GOOD.
