Recipe – Steak Sandwich


A good steak sandwich is an Aussie icon. It makes for a satisfying, and relatively healthy, fast food meal on long road trips … and can also be upscaled for a delicious casual dinner. I use Beerenberg Tomato Chutney, Birch & Waite whole-egg mayonnaise and Brasserie Bread rustic loaf. As with its near cousin the great Aussie hamburger, good caramelised onions are the difference between exceptional and average results; you can’t rush them, it’s worth taking the time to reduce them down to a dark, sweet, sticky mass. A dark beer, like the creamy Black Bevy Session Stout from Jervis Bay Brewing goes down a treat with these steak sandwiches.

Serves 2

Ingredients
  • 200g flank steak
  • Extra virgin olive oil, for brushing
  • Salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 slices soft white bread
  • ¼ cup tomato chutney
  • 2 tablespoons whole egg mayonnaise
  • Handful rocket leaves

Caramelised Onion

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 red onions (about 600g), thinly sliced
  • Salt flakes, to taste
Method
  1. Make Caramelised Onion: put oil in a large high-sided frying pan, add onion, salt well and stir to coat. Cover and cook over a low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft. Remove lid, increase heat to medium and continue cooking for another 30 minutes. Increase heat to high and cook for a further 10 minutes or so, stirring often, until dark and sticky.
  2. Heat a char-grill or heavy-based frying pan over high heat.
  3. Meanwhile, cut steak into 4 thin strips across the grain and gently beat them with a meat mallet until about 5mm thick (you can ask the butcher to do this for you when you buy it).
  4. Brush both sides with oil, sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  5. Cook for about a minute on one side, until well coloured, then turn and cook for a further 30 seconds; remove to a warm plate.
  6. Toast the bread and spread 2 slices with tomato chutney and 2 with mayonnaise.
  7. Top the tomato chutney slices with steak, then Caramelised Onion, then rocket.
  8. Sprinkle with salt and top with the mayonnaise slices.
  9. Dig in!

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.
