steak & onion bites

prep time: 25 minutes
cook time: 20 minutes
ready in: 45 minutes

makes: 30 servings, 1.5 oz. each


  • 1 ¼ lb top sirloin steak
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chili pepper
  • 12 oz. French bread baguette (3-inch diameter)
  • 2 cups tender greens or baby spinach


  1. Preheat broiler. Trim fat from steak and place on broiler pan. Rub both sides of steak with garlic, oregano, and black pepper. Broil 6 minutes on each side until medium rare or internal temperature reaches 145°F. Allow steak to rest 10 minutes before slicing against the grain into thin strips.
  2. Heat butter in a small skillet over medium heat and sauté onions just until starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Add vinegar and sugar and continue to cook, about 5 minutes, until liquid is reduced. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and chipotle pepper. Slice baguette into 1/2 inch thick slices.
  4. To assemble, spread chipotle mayonnaise on bread slices. Top bread with beef slices, then with greens and onions.

Tip: Beef, onions and mayonnaise may be prepared a day ahead and refrigerated until ready to assemble.
