Steak Sandwiches

Lately, I've been looking for quick meals to make. I just want to be outside enjoying the weather. I normally do not cook with a lot of steak. If I'm going to cook with beef, it is hamburger. For a change (and with the children's encouragement), I decided to make steak sandwiches. The children love it. The kids liked a little bit of arugula. I love arugula so I topped my sandwich with a little more. I only made three sandwiches since my husband wasn't feeling the best. Poor guy!
Steak Sandwiches
12 oz. or more Steak (T-bone or Porterhouse)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and pepper, for taste 
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
1 roasted red pepper
1/2 cup arugula

  1. Cut the steak into thin strips.
  2. Season with salt. 
  3. Allow the steak to rest at room temperature for 10 minutes. 
  4. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, and minced garlic.
  5. Place the mayonnaise sauce in the refrigerator to chill.
  6. Heat a skillet over medium heat with the olive oil.
  7. Add the steak and cook for at least 3 minutes before flipping the pieces.
  8. Add pepper to the steak. 
  9. A minute before the steak is cooked to desired doneness add the butter.
  10. Cook for 1 minute.
  11. Remove the meat and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  12. While the meat is resting, spread the garlic mayonnaise mixture onto the inside of the rolls. Top with roasted red peppers and arugula.
  13. Add the meat and form a sandwich.
