This is how you turn two steaks into a delicious and filling family dinner. The high quality of [email protected] ribeye steaks makes these “Ribeye Melt Sandwiches” feel like a high-end meal but cooked at home and in less than 30 minutes! My family and I are big fans of ribeye steaks, and this meal did not disappoint. The steaks were super tender and juicy and paired so well with the tangy Gouda cheese and caramelized onions.
Don’t skip the chipotle and garlic mayonnaise! I am sure this combo will become one of your family’s favorites too. *Minimally processed. No artificial ingredients.
Always let the steak rest, before cooking it and after cooking it. This helps to cook them evenly and keep them juicy.
The chipotle mayo is not very spicy, but it is a great addition to this sandwich. If you prefer to leave it all you can do just regular mayo or even mix mayo and pesto or mayo and sun-dried tomatoes. Both mild and delicious.
Generously season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides and set aside.
Place a skillet on medium high heat and add 1tablespoon of olive oil.
Add the onions and cook until caramelized, about 10 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan and cook for another minute. Remove from the heat.
Heat a large griddle or cast-iron skillet on medium high heat and cook the steaks until desired doneness.
Depending on the thickness of the steak it will take between 2 to 4 minutes per side for medium.
Transfer the steaks to a plate and let them rest for 10 minutes.
While the steaks are resting make the chipotle and garlic mayo. In a small bowl add the mayonnaise, chipotle sauce, minced garlic and lemon juice. Mix and season with salt, to taste.
To assemble the Ribeye melts, spread some mayo on the bottom half of the roll, add a good portion of sliced ribeye and caramelized onions. Top with a slice of cheese and transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining rolls, steak, onions and cheese. Place the bottom half of the sandwiches under the broiler for a couple of minutes just to melt the cheese. Once they are done, add a few greens and top with the other half roll.
Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
