Ultimate Steak Sandwich


Steak sandwich has always been my staple hangover cure. The only problem is, I can’t normally taste anything the day after!

Pushed for time tonight, I thought I would finally do the steak sandwich some justice. A quick, easy meal that requires next to no preparation but is oh so satisfying (especially if you are a little under the weather).

I have used thinly sliced fillet steak, purely because it is the most tender – I did not want to be chewing my way through supper. This is paired with a whole grain mustard mayo, watercress, sun-blushed peppers and caramalised onions – all served on a deliciously chewy ciabatta.

Big enough to feed a small army – this is my Ultimate Steak Sandwich.

Ultimate Steak Sandwich

Serves 1 (or 2 normal eaters!)

1 Long Ciabatta

4 Thin Fillet Steaks

1/4 Jar Sun-Blushed Red Peppers, Strained and Chopped

Large Handful Watercress

1 Medium Onion, Sliced

2Tbsp Mayo

1Tbsp Whole grain Mustard

Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper


1) Place the ciabattas in a medium oven to warm for 5 minutes.

2) Fry the onion in a little olive oil over a high heat until caramalised (10 minutes), season generously with salt and pepper.

3) Fry the fillet steaks over a high heat in some olive oil and season well. They should take less than a minute each side.

4) Slice the ciabatta in half, spread the onions on the bottom and top with the steak. Top the steak with the peppers and watercress. Spread the mustard mayo on the lid.

Sit back and enjoy!
