Grilled Steak and Blue Cheese

These Steak Sandwiches are grilled with a blue cheese spread, delicious smoked beef brisket slices, and red onion. The combination is an explosion of flavors that are of that black and blue fame in a simple lunch sandwich.

A Steak Sandwich a delicious lunch to make with any leftover brisket or beef you may have in the fridge. It can also be quartered and served as an appetizer to any small gathering you may be hosting.

For The Love Of Black And Blue

I love blue cheese and am always looking for ways to use it in my food. I admit, I have been known to open the refrigerator door and open the blue cheese package and stand there snacking on it! 

It is not a strange thing for me to add blue cheese to a grilled cheese sandwich. I think blue cheese compliments many meats. Other than this Steak Sandwich, I also love to make this Grilled Ham and Blue Cheese Sandwich!

A good sturdy bread. I love to use the Tuscan Pane loaf that I find at Trader Joes. The bread is sturdy, will hold the filling in this steak sandwich and not get soggy. I love how crispy and buttery it tastes when grilled. This is also the bread I use to make my Mom’s Lentil Tostadas!

Beef Brisket Flat – We smoked a beef brisket and then I used leftover Smoked Beef Brisket thinly sliced, it was heavenly!

Tips and Substitutions

  • Make buttering the bread easier before grilling. Butter each slice of bread, then place two slices, butter side together when assembling the sandwich. When ready to grill, place the slice the sandwich was built on the grill and top with the other slice.
  • Keep the heat at a medium low at the start of grilling. This will help the fillings to warm up faster and the cheese to be melty. After a couple of minutes, turn the heat up to medium or medium high and watch carefully until it has become golden.
  • Substitute grilled onions for the red onion
  • Add 1 tablespoon of sun dried tomatoes to the sandwich
  • Substitute any beef steak slices or deli roast beef for the brisket
  • Add some arugula to the steak sandwich
  • Add 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce to each steak sandwich. 
  • Slice some fresh figs and add them to the steak sandwich.
