Cajun Steak Sandwich

I got to try out a new fast dinner recipe a few weeks ago and am just now getting around to sharing it. I found the recipe at Better Homes & Gardens where they serve the sandwiches with sweet potato fries. My kids don't want to try those so I didn't make them. The store I went to didn't have ciabatta rolls so I just bought rosette rolls. The recipe calls for them to be open-face sandwiches, but my kids wanted the tops so they could pick them up more easily. (Can't convince them to use a fork and knife on a sandwich.) We also ended up adding spinach to them after the photos.

The sauce is basically a sassy fry sauce, for those of you who know what that is. The recipe makes enough to use it on the sandwiches and have some left for dipping fries so give it a try. We liked the taste and I loved how fast I could throw it all together.
Cajun Steak Sandwich
2 (8-oz.) trimmed rib-eye steaks or boneless beef top steak, cut 1/2 inch thick
3 t. Cajun or blackening seasoning
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1 T. ketchup
1 t. molasses
2 ciabatta rolls, split and toasted
1 tomato, sliced
Sliced green onion (optional)

Cut steaks in half crosswise. Coat both sides of steaks with 1-1/2 tsp. seasoning. Heat a cast-iron or heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook steaks in hot skillet for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.

In a small bowl combine mayonnaise, ketchup, molasses and remaining seasoning.

Place one steak on each roll half. Top with some of the sauce, tomato slice, and green onion.
Makes 4 servings.
