In stead of our usual tuna sandwich lunch, I decided to go old-school and whipped up a steak sandwich this weekend. One of our favorites. I figured we should muster up all the energy we could for our trip to the amusement park/fairy tale forest. After all, I’m no spring chicken anymore. I need my energy. Badly!
My guy took a big bite and with his mouth full he asked: “Is this recipe even on your blog? I don’t recall seeing it”. First, I flogged him for speaking with his mouth full, then I ran to check my sandwich category. I was horrified the recipe wasn’t there! I’m a terrible food blogger, I know. But I’m doing it now, that counts for something, right?
At long last, here is my steak sandwich recipe. And they lived happily ever after…
1 round/rump or flank steak
bread of choice
1/2 medium onion
1/3 bell pepper
3 large mushrooms
1 tbsp worcestershiresauce
few shakes Tabasco
pinch dried thyme
lots of black pepper
2 tbsp butter
2 tsp oil + a little extra butter
* this recipe was for one big eater or 2 normal eaters. Adjust the quantities to suit your needs.
Then there’s steak.
Heat 1 tsp oil and add a little butter. Mine is liquid. Cook the steak as you normally would. I’m not one for raw meat so I’ve cooked mine 3 minutes on each side, that leaves it pretty pink in the center.
Cook for a few more minutes until the mushrooms are slightly soft. Sprinkle a small amount of dried thyme in there, pour in a tbsp worcestershiresauce and add a few Tabasco shakes—I’m using the Jalapeño version. Cook the veggies for 5 more minutes, over really low heat.
And layer the bread with crispy lettuce, steak strips and vegetables.

I can be short about this. Really short. Internet, meet our new favorite sandwich. A few weeks ago—after an afternoon of hardcore shopping—we needed a quick bite to eat. That’s when it happened; I found my fridge pretty much devoid of fresh stuff. The only edible things I did find was some grilled chicken from the night before, a lonesome red bell pepper and an avocado. Now, I had absolutely no desire whatsoever to take a cranky 3-year-old to the…
