Steak Sandwich Recipes

top sirloin sliced

A delicious steak sandwich works any time of day at my house. And usually we use sirloin sandwich steaks in between the bread, but there are so many variations of amazing steak sandwiches that’s it’s best not to limit oneself to just one cut.

I mean, if we only stuck to one cut of beef like sirloin steak, we’d leave out something incredible like this Peppercorn Steak Hoagie with Watercress, Aged Cheddar and Horseradish Mayonnaise that calls for Kansas City strip steak.

Check here for more great steak sandwich recipes and create some of your own with your favorite cuts!

Spring Ingredients

Top Sirloin with Bacon

Oh, sweet spring! The seasonal flavors are what I live for!

There’s just something about spring that’s, well, refreshing.

Carrots! Asparagus! Blueberries!

So many fresh ingredients to incorporate into, say, a Porterhouse steak to springitize it. (I know it’s not a word, but stay with me.)

Instantly turn steaks into springtime fare with citrus accents. So delicious!

Try this recipe for Lemon Herbed Top Sirloin to really ring in the springtime. It’s filled with fresh herbs and refreshing lemon. Just what spring is all about!

Ingredients:
4 Top Sirloin Steaks
1 tbsp. lemon zest
1 lemon, juiced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. olive oil

Directions: Combine all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Mix well. Rub Top Sirloin Steaks with mixture. Allow steaks to marinate for 30 minutes to one hour. Place the steaks on a preheated grill. Sear on each side on high heat for 2 -3 minutes. Turn down the heat and cook to your desired doneness.

Servings: 4

Kabob Ideas

Beef Kabobs

Kabobs are such fun because they allow you to get really creative on the grill.

For me, beef is always a part of a kabob. It’s just the other elements that change.

I like to use sirloin steak (Top Sirloin, to be exact) or beef tenderloin tips. They really work well on a skewer. Filet mignon cut into bite-sized pieces also works beautifully.

Want some extra flavor on your beef kabobs? Try this recipe for Pistachio Crusted Steak Kabobs, then add whatever veggies you like to your skewers – corn, onions, peppers, anything!

Have fun kabobing! Kabobling? Kabobicizing…

Pistachio Crusted Steak Kabobs

Ingredients:
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 cup finely crushed pistachios
4 Top Sirloin Steaks, each cut into 8 cubes
16 (10 in.) wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

Directions: Place the first 5 ingredients into a ziplock freezer bag. Shake to combine. Place Top Sirloin Steaks cubes into ziplock bag, a few at a time, and shake to coat completely. Thread 4 steak cubes onto each skewer. Grill kabobs over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until done. Remove from grill; quickly roll kabobs into finely crushed pistachios. Serve immediately.

Mardi Gras Recipe

Flank Steak

It’s almost Fat Tuesday! Mardi Gras is a time to celebrate and feast before Lent.

Food is such a big part of this fun time and we’ve gotta do it right!

When you think of traditional Mardi Gras fare there’s Chicken Andouille Gumbo, Shrimp Etouffee, Creole Fried Rice, Muffulettas and King Cake.

But what if, like me, you’re hankering for some beef this Mardi Gras? Well, lucky for us, there’s a recipe for that!

Check out this Mardi Gras steak recipe. You can create this using whichever steak cuts you love: Kobe beef, ribeyes – the choice is yours!

The Original New Orleans Bourbon Street and Mardi Gras Steak

Ingredients:
2 scallions, white and greens, thinly sliced
1/3 cup chopped red onions
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. grated, peeled fresh ginger
1 tsp. minced, seeded jalapeno pepper
1 tbsp. ground coriander seeds
1/4 tsp. each black and cayenne pepper
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. each dried basil and kosher salt
1 packed tbsp. light brown sugar
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup each red wine, the soy sauce and bourbon into the spice mixture, vinegar, soy sauce, bourbon whiskey and olive oil
4 (8 oz.) Kansas City Strip Steaks

Directions: In a small bowl, combine the scallions, red onions, garlic, ginger and jalapeno pepper. In a large bowl combine the spices, basil, salt and sugar. Whisk the orange juice, both vinegars, soy sauce and bourbon into the spice mixture. Slowly drizzle the olive oil, whisking constantly. Add the scallion mixture and combine. Add the Kansas City Strip Steaks to the marinade and coat well. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight, turning once.

Bring to room temperature before grilling. Grill the steaks over hot coals 3-4 inches from the heat source for about 5 minutes per side for medium rare. Let rest for 10 minutes, before slicing against the grain into 1/4 inch thick slices. To serve, arrange the steaks on a large platter together with sliced tomato, onion, basil and fresh mozzarella salad.

The Salad:
2 large vine ripe tomatoes, sliced thick, 1 red onion, sliced thin, 2 cups of fresh basil leaves, 8 oz. sliced fresh mozzarella. Topped with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with white balsamic vinegar.

Fall Food Faceoff: KC vs. Philly Cheesesteak

By

 

Sandwich Steaks

It’s safe to say if you’re a steak lover you know what a Philly cheesesteak is. Thinly, thinly sliced top sirloin with ooey gooey cheese and whatever else you crave – peppers, onions, etc.

But, what’s a Kansas City cheesesteak? Well, see above, my friends. It’s a variation, but a distinct difference. Want a fantastic KC cheesesteak recipe? Try this one.

Now, once you’ve partaken of both cheesesteak varieties, tell me, which one wins the faceoff? KC cheesesteak or Philly cheesesteak?

The fate of a city is in your hands.

Choose wisely.

Fall Grilling Tips

By

steakappscreen

 

Fall grilling, while very similar to summer grilling, is a bit different. There ARE some adjustments we’ve got to make.

Here are some tips for making your fall grilling truly spectacular:

1. Tank tops and shorts? Probably not. Don’t forget to bundle up for this job. It’s getting cold out there!

2. Mix in seasonal flavors in your grilling. Fall spices, pumpkins and autumn vegetables like squash say, “Hello, fall!”

3. Use this handy dandy steak timer app. It’ll guide you along the way step-by-step. And it’s free!

4. The grilling app also includes recipes, too. Find something that gets you in an autumny mood.

Hope you have a blast grilling up fall favorites this season!

Fall Ingredients – Best Mushrooms for Steak

By

TBone_2012_lrg

Beautiful fall! It’s here and it’s time to take advantage of all of fall’s bounty.

Mushrooms are a great start! So what are the best mushrooms to accompany a beautiful steak?

Shiitake. Served with flank steak, their smoky taste really enhances the flavor in the beef.

Portobello. This is a very common steak accompaniment because they have a very similar taste to steak. A top sirloin steak is perfect prepared in a skillet with the mushrooms.

Oyster mushrooms. These mushrooms are a wonderful addition to a pepper steak dish. They’re very peppery and add delicious flavor.

The time is right so have fun playing with your own version of mushrooms and steak this fall!

Summertime Favorites

By

strip_chk_burger_Detail

Oh, those beautiful summer days!

They’re coming to a close. But we still have a few days to savor the tastes of wonderful, glorious summer.

My summertime favorites?

Anything light and easy.

A fresh chicken breast on the grill. A little lemon juice and some greens and I’m a happy gal.

Burgers! Adding avocado at this time of year is so refreshing and delicious.

Grilled tenderloin salad. Try this one with peaches, pecans and limes. It looks, tastes and smells like summer.

And finally … steaks! A ribeye is my fave any time of year. Just sitting outside in the summer sun, smelling the aroma of a steak on the grill puts me in my happy place fast.

How about you? What are your summertime classics? Time is running out!
