What do you think of when you think of a steak sandwich? The fact is that a steak sandwich is like most other types of sandwich, in the sense that it can be interpreted - and its ingredients consequently adapted - in virtually any number of different ways. The steak sandwich recipes featured below are, however, quite specific in that they employ the steak like a burger. They can be made to suit a variety of different cuts of steak and are merely some suggestions which will hopefully get you thinking about how to create your own unique steak sandwich recipes of this or any other type and to suit your own tastes.

Which Type of Steak Should I Use to Make Sandwiches?

Any type of beef steak suitable for grilling or frying will work well in a sandwich. It is obviously vital to avoid buying a cut of meat intended for stews or casseroles, as such cuts require long, slow cooking or they will be tough to the point of being inedible. If you are in any doubt, simply ask for advice when selecting the steaks, rather than risk making a costly mistake. The mini steaks used in the initial recipes on this page were advertised in the supermarket as sandwich steaks.

Soft bread rolls were used in these recipe ideas, rather than burger buns. They are more moist, tastier - and contain considerably less salt and sugar. This is of course optional and down to personal choice.

How Long Do I Rest a Steak?

It's common knowledge that when a steak is cooked, it should be left to rest before it is served, cut and eaten. This is to allow the meat - which has tensed up during cooking - to relax and once again become juicy and tender. Steak served straight from the pan or grill will be tough and dry.

What is not always so clear cut is determining for how long you should rest the steak. Regular viewers of TV cookery shows will likely have seen top chefs giving seemingly conflicting instructions in this respect. One idea that you may wish to try - based purely on personal experience - is leaving the steak to rest for exactly the same period as the total cooking time. Hopefully, you will agree this measurement works very well.
