This is definitely a man’s meal which you won’t be able to resist yourself! This steak sandwich is epic and incredibly simple! Whether you buy the BBQ sauce or make this homemade recipe (though come on, homemade always tastes better than store bought) this will definitely be a dinner favorite. Watch Danielle make this herself on her show Dinner with Danielle.
Add tomato paste, allspice, smoked paprika, mustard powder, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes, and stir to combine.
Add the molasses, vinegars, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, tomato sauce, and water to the pot.
Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and allow mixture to simmer until it has reduced by half (about an hour).
For sautéed onions: Add oil, onions, jalapeño, salt, and pepper to another frying pan over medium heat, stirring constantly until onions are golden brown. Add BBQ sauce near the end of cooking.
Season meat very lightly with salt and pepper. Working in batches, drizzle a little bit of oil on the bottom of a frying pan and set over medium-high heat. Add enough meat to fill the pan but do not over-crowd it.
To assemble sandwich, top ciabattas with some lettuce, a huge pile of meat, and onions. Serve hot and enjoy!
