The French Kiss – Our Famous French Onion Soup Cheesesteak Sub

  • Author: Mortadella Head
  • Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 - 2 1x



4 large onions sliced thin
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 stick of butter
1 tablespoon of olive oil
½ cup of Sherry
1 cup of white wine
1 quart of beef stock
1 lb of shaved ribeye
½ lb of shredded Gruyere cheese
1 cup Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon of prepared horseradish
1 loaf of French bread
Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. Melt butter in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat and add your thinly sliced onions and garlic.
  3. Season the onions and garlic with salt and pepper and let them caramelize nice and slow for about 30 minutes.
  4. Add Sherry to the onions and deglaze the bottom of the pan. Use a wooden spoon to loosen up any of the browned bits. Let them cook for another 10 minutes.
  5. Add white wine to the pot and let the wine reduce for an additional 10 minutes.
  6. Add beef stock and bring it to a boil. Once it starts to boil, turn the heat down to low heat and let it simmer for 45 minutes.
  7. Heat olive oil in a frying pan on medium high heat.
  8. Add shaved steak to the pan and break into little pieces with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper.
  9. Now we need to make garlic bread. Open your sub roll with a knife and spread on some butter. Add grated parmesan cheese and put it in the oven until golden brown. When you remove it from the oven, rub a fresh garlic clove all over the inside of the toasted roll.
  10. Using a slotted spoon, take a heaping spoonful of onions out of the soup pot and place them on top of the steak. Mix the onions and steak well until the onions are completely incorporated.
  11. Cover the steak and onions with lots of gruyere cheese and let it melt.
  12. Mix mayonnaise and horseradish together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Spread horseradish mayonnaise inside the roll.
  13. After the cheese melts, fill the toasted sub roll with the steak, onions and cheese.
  14. Serve a cup of the soup on the side for dipping.
  15. Enjoy!
