there’s nothing quite like a sandwich. but this is no turkey & swiss. this is a man sandwich.
i am introducing you to le sandwich. it is the perfect leftover sandwich. being a student, i live by leftovers. if i can salvage in a new & interesting way, i’m game!
here, i am all about leftover steak. now, i realize most people scoff their steak and leave only traces through delish smells wafting around the room. in that case, this sandwich is good enough to cook a steak for!
le sandwich — serves one. 10-20 mins
- 2 slices of bread
- 1/2 lbs steak, sliced
- pickled beets, sliced
- tomato, sliced
- dijon mustard
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- salt & pepper, to taste
if you aren’t using lefovers, you can start by cooking your cut of steak to your liking. I prefer a new york strip cooked medium. gotta have some pink. let it rest while finishing the rest.
meanwhile, heat butter in a small frying pan. crack the egg into the pan. cook the egg on one side for 3 minutes. then flip the egg and cook for another 2 minutes depending on how runny you like your yolk.
if you are using leftover steak, heat it up in the microwave for around 30 seconds or until warm. If you would prefer it cold, then go for it!
when everything is ready, let’s put it all together!
lather the bread slices with mayo & mustard. place the steak slices on one slice of bread. then place the beets on top of the steak. now place the tomatoes down, followed by the egg. sprinkle the egg with salt & pepper. then place the lettuce on top. finish with the other bread slice.
i like to cut it in half, but beware! the egg yolk will run a little bit (which is delicious!). towards the end, i highly recommend mopping up the yolk.
a picture is on its way!
i give credit where credit is needed. i had a variation of this sandwich is Brisbane, Australia at the Java Lounge Cafe. it will never be forgotten!
