How to Cook Open-Faced Steak Sandwiches

Open-Faced Steak Sandwiches are a really tasty & quick go-to meal.

steakAs much as we enjoy our turkey for Christmas dinner, leftovers the next day, hot turkey sandwiches with gravy the next day, and cold sandwiches or for a cold platter the next day…

A change for something different is called for when it’s leftover week!

A welcome change at our house is open-faced steak sandwiches with a beautiful array of luscious mushrooms.

How to Cook Open-Faced Steak Sandwiches:

When I purchase a beef roast, I usually cut 10 – 12 very, very thin pieces, 1/4 inch thick or less, from one end to save for open-faced steak sandwiches. These cuts are good quality, cook quickly & are really delicious.

Using enough slices for 4 people of sirloin, rump, prime rib or other roasts, I rub both sides of each piece of meat gently with grapeseed or olive oil, a clove of garlic & a sprinkle of peppers.

Each serving requires about 3 or 4 slices of beef, and set aside while preparing the mushrooms – about 10 – 15 min. Then, using a piping hot skillet, sear each side of the slices. That’s all it takes to cook the meat!

You’ll then immediately transfer the steak slices to top a toasted & lightly buttered piece of crusty bread, place another piece of toast on top, and the rest of the prepared beef on top. Smother with mushrooms & serve. Ready in a jiffy!

I you like, you can add green peppers with the mushrooms. Also, it may be a nice touch, if you feel like it, to create a nice gravy to pour over to of the sandwiches. Yum…

My recipe yields enough for 4 healthy servings.
