Gourmet Steak Sandwiches
I came up with these yummy steak sandwiches for something different to do with our leftover delicious steaks RECIPE HERE. These tasted amazing! How can you go wrong with balsamic sautéed red peppers, gorgonzola cheese crumbles, and creamy pesto mayo? The only thing I feel bad about now is that I only had enough leftover steak to make one! We are going to have to have steaks again and make extra so I can have more of these steak sandwiches. And this time maybe I will even share one with my husband.
Secrets to Success
There are a couple of key things to making these really good! First, be sure to follow the re-heating instructions for the steak. Whatever you do, don’t nuke your steak in the microwave and ruin it. Second, try to get a good, aged balsamic vinegar. It is worth the investment, trust me!
Soups With Your Sandwich

How To Make Gourmet Steak Sandwiches
- Combine the mayonnaise and pesto in a small bowl until well blended, then keep cold in the refrigerator.
- Slice the leftover steak and warm the slices in a small fry pan over the stove on medium heat. You don't need to overcook them, just warm them up then remove from heat and onto a plate.
- In the same fry pan, add a little vegetable oil and the red pepper slices. Cook over medium heat until the red peppers begin to soften. Drizzle on some balsamic vinegar and cook a few more minutes, then remove from heat.
- Open the sandwich rolls and spread a layer of pesto mayo on both sides of the roll. Top the bottom slice with the warmed steak slices, gorgonzola cheese crumbles, sautéed red peppers, and lettuce mix. Add the top bun and serve. Makes 4 sandwiches.
