Skirt Steak Sandwich with Caramelized Onions & Mushrooms, Arugula and Horseradish Mayonnaise ~ A Complete Dinner for Tonight!
Want to make someone really happy this evening?
Make this Skirt Steak Sandwich with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms, Arugula and Horseradish Mayonnaise...
The richness of the skirt steak, caramelized onions and mushrooms ~ pairs perfectly with the spicy horseradish sauce and peppery fresh arugula!
Serve with one or both of the following sides from previous posts to complete the meal (and an ice cold beer or glass of pinot noir):
Carrot Ginger Soup
Fresh Shoestring French Fries
All you'll need to make the sandwich:
1 lb Skirt Steak (some garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper)
1 small package of sliced mushrooms
1 onion, sliced
1 bag of fresh arugula
Prepared Horseradish in a jar
Nice fresh rolls, soft, yet crusty (like torpedos or croissants)
(butter and olive oil for cooking)
How to Prepare:
In a medium bowl, add equal parts mayonnaise and horseradish (about 4T to 4T) and mix or whisk together well to make your sauce, set aside. (adjust taste to your liking)
Lightly drizzle your skirt steak with olive oil on both side. Lightly sprinkle your skirt steak on both sides with garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Set aside at room temperature.
Meanwhile, place 1-2 tablespoons of butter in a pan over medium-high heat and allow it to melt down, add your onions and cook until soft and translucent, add your mushrooms to the same pan w/the onions and continue cooking about 10 minutes until both the onions and mushrooms are cooked down and caramelized nicely. Turn off heat and set aside.
Next, cook your skirt steak on either a super hot grill, grill pan or under the broiler (on both sides) for about 2-2.5 minutes per side for medium-rare.
Remove from the heat and allow your skirt steak to sit to retain its juices.
Slice your rolls, lightly grill rolls if desired.
After about 5-10 minutes of skirt steak rest time, slice your skirt steak on a bias, against the grain.
Pile sliced skirt steak on your roll, top with generous amount of caramelized onions and mushrooms, then top with a nice amount of fresh arugula. Drizzle arugula with the prepared horseradish mayonnaise sauce, top with roll and enjoy!
