Super Steak Sandwich

Sam Jones/Quinn Brein


1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup beer
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
2 beef flank steaks (1 pound each)
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups onions, sliced into thin rings
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 large loaf French bread
cheese (your preference), optional


In a medium bowl, combine the oil, beer, garlic, pepper, salt, and mustard. Marinate the steaks overnight in the refrigerator.

In a large skillet, melt the butter and sauté the onions and mushrooms with the paprika until tender and lightly browned; keep warm while cooking the steaks. Remove the steaks from the marinade and broil or grill for about 4 to 5 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Slice the meat diagonally into ¼-inch pieces. Cut the French bread into four equal pieces, then cut each piece in half horizontally. Divide the onion-mushroom mixture evenly among four pieces of the bread, top with meat, and cover with the remaining bread.

omit beer

I agree with Gail. Since she had no answer from you, I suggest using a cola instead of beer; or using a little Worcestershire sauce (not a cup). Have to tell you: I am not a cook, can barely follow a recipe. Perhaps someone who is a cook would have a better idea!


can you make this and substitute the beer with something else, I don't drink so I don't think I want to marinate in beer

I want to save the page, lots

I want to save the page, lots of good stuff to come back to. Can you help?

Printing the Recipe

When I print out the recipe only the ingredients print. The instructions don't print. I wonder if you could fix this for the future.

Thanks for letting us know; we’re looking into the issue!


I always take a picture of recipes I like and archive them in a photo album. I use an iPad and it is a simple procedure. All right there handy when you want to fix the item for your family.
