Steak and Brie Sandwich

1 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp. white vinegar (balsamic will do, so will apple cider)
1 tsp. lemon zest
1 tbsp. fresh thyme, minced
Kosher Salt
Fresh ground pepper
1 - 1 1/2 lbs. lean steak (top sirloin or tenderloin)
1 1/2 tbsps. butter
Red or yellow onions slices (you can use them raw or saute them in the pan juices)
3-4 sandwich rolls
4 oz. brie cheese, cut into slices
3-4 crisp leafy green lettuce leaves
Tomato slices

In a small bowl, combine the first four ingredients - I forgot to put my lemon in with these cast of characters, so I went ahead and drew one in there, howdya like it?? ;)

 Stir well and set aside

Heat the butter in a large pan, add the steak meat, salt and pepper, cook until desired doneness is reached.  Remove from pan and cover.  This is where you add the onions slices if you want them cooked.
Add 1 tbsp. of olive or canola oil to the steak juices, under medium heat add the onions, stirs occasionally until they're tender, translucent and carmelized.

Turn the broiler onto high heat.  Slice the sandwich rolls in half (if they aren't already) and spread the bottom half of each roll with the mayonnaise spread.  Take two or three slices of the Brie cheese and place on the top half of each roll.

Place the sandwiches open-faced onto a pan and place the pan under the broiler for 3-5 minutes (don't step away too far - I use a timer to keep me close by).  If the bread is toasted to your liking before time is up, by all means, please take it out.  Gently spread the Brie cheese with a butter knife.

Top each bottom half with the onions, meat, tomatoes and lettuce.  Place the roll tops on each sandwich.  Serve immediately.

Ever in the mood for a juicy steak sandwich?  I searched the internet high and low and came up with this sandwich which ended up being a culmination of several recipes.   I used the same spread from my Monster Clubs (the best spread ever - tangy and creamy).  The toasted rolls make such a big difference in taste.  Very savory and tasty and it definitely hit the spot.  Wasn't hard to make and it probably took me less than 45 minutes to make.  Hubby devoured them and I have to admit, so did I :)  Yay for a good, juicy steak sandwich!

Have a blessed week and remember to savor every moment!
