French Onion Steak Sandwich

In my on-going quest to introduce my dear husband to new foods, I happened upon this particular recipe.  I found it on one of my new favorite websites, Pinterest.  It looked really yummy and really simple, so I pinned it and decided to give it a shot.  It wasn’t necessarily a hit with My Honey, but he declared that it wasn’t that bad.  It may be a rare meal, but I enjoyed it and thought you might, too.



  • 1 – 1 1/2 lbs. thin, lean steak (I had a good-sized sirloin in the freezer and used that.)
  • 1 (10 1/2 oz.) can French onion soup
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 buns
  • 3-4 Provolone cheese slices
  • 1/4-1/2 cup finely chopped onion


  1. Slice the steak into thin strips (like for fajitas), trimming off fat as you go.
  2. In a skillet, cook the meat through with the onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.  Drain off grease.
  3. Mix soup and meat together in the skillet again.  Bring to a boil.  Cover and reduce heat to low-medium.  Allow to simmer 15-30 minutes.
  4. Uncover and allow excess juices (if there is any) to cook out.  Remove from heat.
  5. Lightly butter both sides of buns, and broil for about a minute to toast.
  6. Divide meat onto bottoms of buns.  (Set the tops aside.)  Top meat with 1-2 slices of cheese.
  7. Broil again until cheese melts (1-2 minutes).
  8. Place top half of bun on immediately.
  9. Serve!

More topping ideas:

  • Sliced banana peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Bell peppers
  • Au jus dipping sauce

*Note:  This recipe is also crock pot friendly.  Just cut up steak, and place it in crock pot with all the other ingredients.  Cook on low for about 8 hours or on high for about 4 hours.  I actually mostly cooked the steak in a skillet with onions, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper, drained, and placed in the crock pot with the soup for about 2 hours on high to finish cooking and tenderize the meat.
