3. Return skillet to medium-high heat. Sprinkle steak with Montreal seasoning. Add to skillet and brown on both sides, 3 minutes total. Add remaining beef broth to skillet, scraping up any brown bits from pan. Transfer steak to baking dish; pour skillet contents over steak.

4. Cover dish with foil and roast at 450 degrees F for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and increase heat to broil. Open rolls slightly and toast under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes.

5. Thinly slice steak against the grain and return to baking dish. Divide meat and onions among rolls, spooning sauce over each. Serve sandwiches with additional sauce for dipping alongside.
