Sweet & Spicy in Each Bite – Steak Sandwich

This recipe caught my eye as it had 2 important ingredients which my family loves – Steak & Jalapenos. Steak with Caramelized Onion-Jalapeno Sauce will satisfy any palate which craves a kick in their dishes. Naturally, I made it with beef but the onion-jalapeno sauce is luscious enough to bring sparkle to any meat of your choice. It should compliment Turkey or Lamb beautifully too.


Steak Sandwich with Caramelized Onions & Jalapeno Sauce


  • 1 1/2 pounds steak (I used NY Strip but feel free to substitute with flank, rib eye or your choice cut)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 cups yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 fresh jalapeño peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 4 sturdy rolls of your choice, halved lengthwise
  • 4 cups loosely packed salad green


  1. Season steak with salt and pepper and grill till medium rare. Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet. Add onions, jalapeños, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft and deep golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Stir in cream and 1/2 cup of water and cook just to heat through. Adjust seasoning and stir in vinegar.
  4. To assemble, slice steak thinly on the bias. Top one side of each roll with optional greens and arrange slices on top. Spoon sauce over steak. Serve warm.
