26 Mar steak sandwich
Sometimes a substantial sandwich for supper is all that’s need to cure what ails you. This week, we’re using our trusty caramelized onion recipe to give our steak sandwich a bit of sweetness.
steak sandwich (serves 4)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 piece of steak
1 baguette, sliced into 4 pieces
4 tablespoons of mayo
50g Blue Cheese (optional)
- Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Peel your onions and slice them into half-moon shapes. Add them to the frying pan and fry for 3 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and sugar, and continue to fry gently for another 15 to 20 minutes, stirring often, until the onions are dark in colour and sweet to taste.
- Heat a smaller frying pan over a high heat and cook your steak to your liking. We season our steak with salt and pepper before cooking on one side over a very high heat for 8 minutes, flipping over and resting in the pan off the heat for 5 minutes before slicing.
- Assemble your sandwich by layering bread with mayo, rocket, slices of steak, a spoonful of caramelized onions and a crumbling of blue cheese, if using.
