Open wide; this is BIG! Dry Rub Grilled Skirt Steak Sandwiches are juicy slices of seasoned beef that are piled high on a crusty roll and then topped with sauteed green bell peppers and sweet onion slices.
The recipe for the dry rub I’m sharing with you today can be made in advance and kept in a sealed container in your pantry or spice cabinet. It’s delicious for use on beef, chicken, pork, lamb, and just about anything else you can think of. These Dry Rub Grilled Skirt Steak Sandwiches are great to serve to your hungry family and friends at your next backyard BBQ.
Meat and bread lovers will find these sandwiches unbelievably satisfying and delicious. With the addition of some beef broth for dipping and some hot sauce for splashing, if you love big, bold, meaty flavors (or know someone that does) then this recipe has your/their name/names written all over it. 🙂
Making Dry Rub Grilled Skirt Steak Sandwiches is as easy as one, two, three.
One: Mix together the dry rub spice blend (recipe follows). Liberally spread the spice rub on both sides of the skirt steak. Allow the meat to sit with the spice rub for at least 20 minutes. Two: Meanwhile, saute green pepper and onion slices in a large skillet until softened.
Three: Grill the steaks (either outdoors or on an indoor grill pan) for approximately 5 minutes per side or until your desired doneness. Remove the steaks from the grill and allow the meat to sit, covered, for at least 10 minutes. Thinly slice the skirt steak across the grain. To make sandwiches, pile the meat on crusty rolls, top with the sauteed green pepper and onion. If desired use beef broth or stock for dipping, and sprinkle the sandwich with hot sauce.
