Recipe: Croissant Steak Sandwiches
There isn’t much to say about a sandwich like this, because if you’ve never tried one then you haven’t lived. Tender steak strips, caramelized onions, mushrooms and arugula all paired together with horseradish mayonnaise and in this case on a crisp croissant. This combination of ingredients make possibly one of my favorite sandwiches ever, which is why I left the recipe for you after the jump. Get it done people, you won’t be disappointed. (Thx DW&D)
Croissant Steak Sandwiches with Caramelized Onions and Horseradish Mayonnaise:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup prepared white horseradish

2 cups arugula
