A quick and easy summertime or anytime meal can be found in these terrific open face sandwiches. They make great use of leftover steak from last night’s barbecue or steak dinner.

To be honest, in anticipation the next day being a busy one with little time to cook, I grilled a couple of extra strip loin steaks as a bit of advance meal planning. That is the sort of thing that I often do during a busy week.

Today, for example, I am attending a concert at my son’s rock band camp all afternoon. So, yesterday when we had grilled chicken Caesar salad for dinner, I purposely grilled a few more breasts.

The leftover chicken breasts were used to quickly put together some grilled chicken paninis for dinner tonight. I’m adding some roasted peppers and more of that tasty provolone cheese… really looking forward to those.

These steak sandwiches are made on toasted ciabatta bread. The bread has been spread with a delicious compound butter that includes garlic, herbs and Worcestershire sauce.

Besides adding a great flavour punch to these sandwiches, there is another use for this particular compound butter.  Top a freshly grilled steak with a generous pat of this butter and let it melt over the steak as you eat it. Just simply delicious, if just a little indulgent.

These steak sandwiches are a great idea during the abundant summer tomato season.

Open Face Tomato Provolone Steak Sandwich - a terrific way to use leftover grilled steak or a tasty way to stretch one large steak to feed the whole family.

Ingredients

For Each Sandwich (Serves 3)

  • 1 lb Sliced steak
  • 1 tomato, thickly sliced
  • 3 ounces provolone cheese
  • 1/2 small ciabatta bread

For the Garlic Herb Worcestershire Butter (No need to use it all)

  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp soft butter
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp chopped oregano
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  1. Lightly saute the garlic in 2 tbsp butter, just to soften it. Do NOT brown it.
  2. Add the sauteed garlic to the other ingredients and whip together until smooth. If you like, you can form it into a log, wrap in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for several days.
  3. Ciabatta bread, split horizontally and well toasted
  4. Spread the Garlic Herb Worcestershire Butter on the toasted ciabatta.
  5. Top the bread with thin slices of freshly grilled rare steak. ( or if using leftover rare steak, warm it for only a minute per side in a cast iron skillet.)
  6. Lightly fry thick slices of vine ripened tomatoes in a little butter before adding these on top of the sliced steak.
  7. Finally, place several slices of provolone cheese on the tomatoes and broil for only a minute or two until the cheese melts. Grab a fork and knife and dig in.

Notes

You will only use a little of the compound butter to spread on the bread. The rest can be used for up to a week on steamed vegetables, over grilled steak, pork or lamb or used in scrambled eggs.

Simple recipe to make but it was SO enjoyable! My hubby loves steak but we often have some left and so I began making this rather than just a plain steak sandwich - this is much better!! :)
