I don’t say this often… but these Juicy Steak, Arugula & Boursin Sandwiches with Homemade Crispy Onions are finger 👏🏼 licking 👏🏼 good! I used @verdefarms Grass Fed Filet Mignon that I found at my local Fresh Market, but you can use any of their Grass Fed steak cuts, such as ribeye or sirloin! Shockingly easy to make, these steak baguette sandwiches are slathered with Boursin cheese, juicy steak, and homemade crispy onions for a flavor explosion!
How to make Homemade Crispy Onions?
Heat up the frying oil over medium to medium-high heat to 400F.
Toss the flour and spices in a large bowl. Add the thinly sliced onions and toss to combine.
Add the battered onions to the frying pan. Fry 3-5 minutes, or until crispy and golden.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the crispy onions to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oils. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
Best Tips to Pan Searing Steak to Perfection:
Season the steak generously with salt and black pepper on both sides.
Let the steak rest at room temperature BEFORE cooking for 20-30 minutes.
Heat up the cast iron skillet for 1-2 minutes on medium high PRIOR to adding the steak. You want the skillet HOT!
Add the steak to the skillet and then add your fats (such as butter or olive oil). This will keep the fats from burning typo quickly in the hot skillet.
Once cooked, let the steak rest at least 6 minutes before slicing. This helps the juices to settle and the steak will be more tender once sliced!
How to cook steak on the stovetop?
Let the steak sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400F. Heat up a cast iron skillet over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes, until hot.
Generously season the steak with salt and black pepper on both sides, then add to the hot skillet.
Add the butter and fresh rosemary to cook 2-3 minutes on each side.
Carefully transfer the skillet into the oven to finish cooking another 3-4 minutes, or until desired wellness. (This is for medium rare steaks.)
Let the steak rest 10 minutes before slicing.
How to assemble the Steak Baguette Sandwiches:
To assemble, slice the baguette or ciabatta in half lengthwise. Drizzle with olive oil and broil 3-4 minutes, until toasted.
Slather the boursin cheese on the bottom slice.
Layer with the baby arugula, thinly sliced steak, crispy onions, and (optional) grated parmesan to enjoy!
How to store and reheat the homemade crispy onions:
You can make ahead crispy onions up to 4 days in advance. To store, place the cooled crispy onions in an airtight container in the fridge. When ready to re-crisp, add them to your air fryer or oven at 375F for 3-4 minutes.
