I have been in a sandwich/burger mood lately, so we have been trying lots of new different types. This particular sandwich is one that I made for the men in my family. Most men can’t say no to steak, add in the onion marmalade and the sandwich becomes gender neutral! The marmalade was seriously delicious. I almost wished that I had doubled the marmalade recipe, I couldn’t get enough piled on my sandwich. If you have steak lovers in the family, I’m positive this will be a great new spin on steak sandwiches.
Peppered Flank Steak Sandwich with Onion Marmalade
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
3 cups finely chopped yellow onion
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon bourbon (optional)
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
5 garlic cloves, crushed
1 1/2 pound flank steak
1 to 2 tablespoons coarsely ground blank pepper
6 hamburger buns, split and toasted
Cook sugar in oil in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, about 10 minutes or until golden.
Add chopped onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook 20 minutes or until golden, stirring often.
Stir in orange juice and, if desired, bourbon; cook 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates. Set aside and keep warm.
Combine Dijon mustard, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and garlic; spread mixture over both sides of steak. Sprinkle steak with pepper, and press gently into mustard mixture.
Grill steak over medium, direct heat for about 10 to 12 minutes, turning once. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
Spoon steak onto bottom halves of buns; top evenly with onion mixture, and cover with bun tops.
