  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 8

Source: Everyday Food, June 2008

Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil, for grates
  • 3 boneless rib-eye steaks (each about 1 pound and 1 inch thick), excess fat removed
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 large red onion, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 2 baguettes, split
  • 5 ounces fresh goat cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup grainy mustard
  • 2 bunches arugula (about 10 ounces total), stems trimmed

Directions

  1. Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Season steaks with salt and pepper; grill 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate; let rest 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, grill onion until tender and charred, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; separate into rings. (To store, refrigerate steaks and onion, up to 1 day.)

  3. Assemble sandwiches: Thinly slice steaks against the grain. Dividing evenly, spread top halves of bread with cheese, and bottom halves with mustard. Pile steak, onion, and arugula on bottom halves; close sandwiches. Cut each sandwich into quarters, and serve.

Cook's Notes

If you're making these for a party, grill the steaks one day ahead.

    I hear you, Mary! I don't have an outdoor grill either. But Dznyma makes a great point -- cast-iron grill pans make a great substitute for small-scale grilling, like making these steak sandwiches.

    There are indoor grills available and they do a great job. True, you may not get the exact same flavor, but it is a great alternative.

    Why is it always assumed that everyone has a BBQ? Many who live in apartments and condos are not permitted to BBQ. It seems that every Father's Day recipe starts with "Fire up the grill!"
