Teriyaki Steak Sandwiches

Teriyaki Steak Sandwich - Create With Joy
When you go strolling down the aisles of your local supermarket, is there a favorite brand of bread your family always gravitates towards? For us, it’s King’s Hawaiian Bread. Everyone loves family festivities where Hawaiian Sweet Rolls are served. My mom sends coupons whenever she has extras to spare!!

So, I am delighted to share that Amy at A Latte With Ott A is kicking off another year of Iron Chef Challenges with none other than a King’s Hawaiian Bread Challenge! Participants were asked to create a recipe using the King’s Hawaiian Bread product of their choice.

Ott A Kings Hawaiian Bread Iron Chef Challenge

For my recipe, I decided to make Teriyaki Steak Sandwiches. I wanted, first and foremost, to create a dish where the King’s Hawaiian Bread would be the star ingredient, and I could think of no better way to highlight them than through a fabulous sandwich! I made Marinated Teriyaki Steak with Caramelized Onions and Red Bell Peppers for the filling because I felt the flavors would nicely complement the natural sweetness in the King’s Hawaiian Bread.  And, because the King’s Hawaiian Sandwich Buns – my bread choice for the recipe – is so delicious on its own, a light toasting in the oven is all you need to do to make this bread the perfect complement for the sandwich of your choice!

Enjoy this easy-to-make sandwich – served on delicious King’s Hawaiian Bread!

Featured Product - King's Hawaiian Sandwich Buns


King’s Hawaiian Sandwich Buns
1 ½ Pounds of Your Favorite Steak/Cut Of Beef, Cut Into Thin Strips
