Steak au Poivre Sandwiches

steak au poivre sandwich recipe

How to make Steak au Poivre Sandwices at home. Seared beef tenderloin sauteed peppers and onions, a creamy pepper sauce, and a toasty bun.

I have a confession to make. I do not have a set of pots and pans. I have a handful of random saucepans and saute pans that I have picked up here and there. I never liked the options that a set had. I might want one piece of the set, but then know that I will not use some of the other pieces. I use both nonstick and stainless and did not like being committed to one or the other. I like to pick and choose the cookware that suits the needs that I have in the kitchen. Calphalon has answered my prayers by launching Your Set by Calphalon. Now you can choose between two different kinds of pans, Unison Nonstick or Accucore and then mix and match pieces to create your perfect set.

Calphalon asked me create a unique spin on a classic and I took the classic steak au poivre and turned it into a sandwich. Beef tenderloin was on sale at my grocery store so we got to indulge in something usually reserved for a special occasion on a weeknight. This sandwich was so delicious and was the perfect thing to break in my new pans.
