Spicy Mayo Chipsteak Sub

I love chip steak because it can be used in so many recipes! Whether it’s a sandwich or stir fry, chip steak is always there to spread some fun. Chip steak is very thinly sliced bison which cooks very quickly. It’s very easy to flavor, or even over flavor this cut of bison because it is so thin. The key to cooking chip steak is constantly checking the taste (which is perfect for me!)

For this recipe, we really wanted to save calories by avoiding cheese, and instead, focus on the bread and bison within the sandwich itself. With a thick, crusty, and crunchy Italian roll, the bison will be cushioned with love in every bite. To keep the sandwich moist, we had a great idea of mayonnaise, but to add a little spice, we created our own spicy mayo!


  • 1/2 Cup mayo with olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder (tor o taste)

  • 1/4 teaspoon Chili powder (or to taste)

  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground cumin (or to taste)

  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper (or to taste)

  • 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika (or to taste)

  • Spring mix

  • Chip steak

  • Red onions

  • Yellow Peppers

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • An Italian roll

  • Cheese is optional, and we recommend sharp cheddar


  1. Scoop out 1/2 cup mayo, and mix together the garlic, chili, ground cumin, cayenne pepper, and smoked paprika into the mayonnaise. Mix well!

  2. Toast your Italian roll in your oven or toaster oven on around 200 F with the bun open on the grill

  3. Cut the red onion (in half by the top, and then horizontally

  4. Cut the pepper into strips

  5. Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil into a frying pan and turn the heat on medium-high

  6. Add the cut peppers and onion to the pan and slightly season with salt and pepper. Stir occasionally and cook until they turn a slight brown

  7. Remove the vegetables from the pan

  8. Add the chip steak to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Leave in the pan and stir occasionally until cooked fully

  9. Add the vegetables back into the pan with the chip steak

  10. Remove your roll from the toaster oven

  11. Spread the spicy mayo mix on the inside of the Italian roll

  12. Stuff your Italian roll with spring mix, chip steak, peppers and onions

  13. Enjoy!
