Steak Sandwich Recipes

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!
