Croissant Steak Sandwiches with Caramelized Onions and Horseradish Mayonnaise

Another great sandwich recipe from Bon Appetit. The taste is so good with all the ingredients, that it's amazing how I didn't do these before.

I used French rolls instead of croissants because I didn't have them, but I'm sure it would be great with them. Next time:)

I did cut the butter down while cooking the steaks, and used non-fat mayo, to make it a little bit healthy.

I can't think of anyone that wouldn't enjoy these sandwiches. Yummmmmmy!


CROISSANT STEAK SANDWICHES WITH CARAMELIZED ONIONS AND HORSERADISH MAYONNAISE

Ingredients:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup prepared white horseradish
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, divided
3 1-inch-thick beef tenderloin steaks
3 medium onions, thinly sliced
8 ounces large shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, caps thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
1 cup beef broth
4 large croissants, halved horizontally, lightly toasted
2 cups arugula

Directions:
Mix mayonnaise and horseradish in small bowl to blend.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle tenderloin steaks with salt and pepper. Add steaks to skillet and cook to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Using tongs, transfer steaks to work surface.

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in same skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions; sauté until dark brown, about 25 minutes. Add mushrooms; sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add broth; boil until juices are reduced to glaze, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute. Season onion mixture to taste with salt and pepper.

Place 1 croissant bottom, cut side up, on each of 4 plates. Spread each with horseradish mayonnaise and top with 1/2 cup arugula. Thinly slice steaks and divide among croissants. Top with onion mixture. Spread remaining mayonnaise on cut side of croissant tops. Place tops on sandwiches.

Makes 4 servings.
