A classic grilled steak sandwich elevated with seasonal slow cooked cider caramelized onions, dressed with rocket leaves, and good quality sweet & smokey mustard paired with a cider gravy for dunking.
Steak and onions go together like PB&J. This is why this sandwich is seriously bomb.com when you nail food pairings for the ultimate taste explosion everything just taste that much better. It really doesn’t take a grocery list of ingredients to achieve this either. Like here our sandwich is pretty simple and straightforward, you’ve got some nice good steak and good bread and a really nice mustard. With this you can build your perfect steak sandwich.
Amp up the flavour of your onions by caramelizing them in some fresh apple cider. The cider lends a subtle hint of sweetness and ties in nicely that fall comfort taste we all crave right now beautifully with a hint of fresh thyme to add more character and earthiness.
For the sauce we built it from the steak drippings that accumulated in the plate while it was resting and tied in some of the same ingredients we’re already using in this recipe for consistency to add flavour. our gravy resembles more of a pan sauce but its perfect for this type of sandwich. We added some of our cider onions back into a pan with a bit of the drippings to mimic a deglaze and once it was well heated we used apple cider and butter to give it some volume.
Our steaks were grilled on the BBQ however if you are pan-searing your steak the drippings would already be in your pan and from there you can add the apple cider and continue the remaining steps.
