Classic Steak Sandwich – a Scrumdowner Special:
Cooking from scratch (or nearly from scratch, because I don’t propose baking your own bread especially for these steak sandwiches) couldn’t be easier. I’ve been experimenting with thin cut rump steak, making quick and delicious snack, lunch or supper dishes in the form of steak sandwiches. Perfect to eat while you are watching the Rugby, Football or even Strictly Come Dancing. Starting with the classic steak sandwich with a little mustard, chilli jam and salad garnish.
Here’s the basic recipe.
Then, just to mix things up a bit, I made a stroganoff inspired steak sandwich, using a ciabatta roll to hold the rather messy ingredients. Adding a rich and creamy sauce with onions and mushrooms made for a great, quick supper.
Finally, taking my lead from the wonderful Mediterranean food I ate on the MDFV gulet cruise, I made a spiced roasted vegetable and steak sandwich. It was, without any doubt, my personal favourite – the olive oil and spice infused vegetables were a wonderful complement to the tender strips of rump steak.
Watch out for the recipe for the roasted Mediterranean vegetables, which I will publish soon, or use your own favourite.
Of course the most important thing with all these recipes is to start with some really good beef. Mine was sent to me by Quality Standard Meat – a special thin cut rump steak that was perfect for making a steak sandwich.
