Steak Sandwich with an Asian twist
Although we mostly cook vegetarian at home, I love eating some good old grilled beef steak once in a while. And if we are lucky enough to have left-overs, these can be used to make a truly gourmet steak sandwich the next day.
In this post, we prepare the steak with caramelized onions, roasted red peppers and some Tamari sauce, giving the traditional recipe of the sandwich a slightly Asian flair.
We hope you will give it a shot!
serves 2 hungry meat-eaters
about 150g good quality beef steak – cooked
1 roasted red pepper
1 red chili, seeds removed and finely chopped
1 small red onion or a couple of shallots – chopped
1 teaspoon raw sugar
1-2 tablespoons tamari sauce
1/2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
some mixed lettuce
Heat some olive oil in a small pan and add the chopped red chili. Add and fry the sliced onion/shallots with about a teaspoon of raw sugar until golden and slightly caramelized. Cut the steak into thin slices and add it into the pan. Turn up the heat and flash the mix with the tamari sauce. Add the roughly chopped roasted red pepper and a bit of rice wine vinegar to taste.
Spread some mayo on the Ciabatta bread, add the steak mix and top with some lettuce and coriander if you have it handy (sadly for the photo shoot we didn’t). Who knew such a simple sandwich could be so incredibly tasty!
