Minute Steak Sandwich with Fried Onions and Sweet Mustard


  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 large onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 very thin minute steak, weighing 4 ounces each
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • ciabatta roll or baguette, or your preferred bread, toasted
  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard


Place a skillet on the stove and add half the oil along with the onions. Pan-fry on high heat until golden brown and a bit crispy around the edges, 10 minutes.

Move the cooked onions over to the edge of the pan and increase the heat. Add another tablespoon of oil. Season the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper and put them in the pan. Cook for 45 seconds on each side. Turn off the heat and take the steaks out of the pan to rest.

Cut your chosen bread in half and toast on both sides either on a grill pan or under the broiler. Spread with butter and loads of mustard. Pile on the onions and slice the steak before loading onto the sandwich. Put on the top half of toasted bread and dunk into more mustard while you eat.
