Steak Sandwich Saturdays

June 25, 2011

Don’t we all need a Steak Sandwich Saturday every now and then? On the first day of the weekend when midday rolls around, and your tummy is telling you it’s time to sink your teeth into something that is both delicious and substantial, it is at this point when the trumpets start playing and we prepare to hoist the Steak Sandwich Saturday flag. March in the troops!

Super fresh, crisp cucumber and seriously sweet tomatoes are a must…

Your parent’s homemade Green Tomato Chutney really comes in handy…

Good quality parmesan, just a light shaving…

Assemble all the ingredients (including spinach leaves and crisp red onion) with flash cooked minute steaks that have been dressed with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Toasted Dench wholegrain sourdough makes an excellent bread base.

Serve with olives, for kicks…

And that’s how you do Steak Sandwich Saturdays.

    Every now and then we get some wagu sandwich steaks from the markets. They cost around $10 each, but make the BEST steak sangas in the entire world! There is no point resisting a craving like that, especially with all your yummy extras!

    My mum's neighborhood makes a mean homemade tomato chutney fresh from their veggie patch and is kind enough to supply me a monthly batch. 🙂 It goes with everything!

    SSG – thanks!

    InTolerant Chef – ooooh hot tip, thanks! Must give it a go, yum 🙂

    Adrian – snap, how good is it? I love green tomato chutney so much!

    Steak sandwich Saturday – I love how we associate nights of the weeks with certain dishes. As a kid we always did beef burgers on a friday night as a wind down meal from the week and I carry this casual meal idea on with my own family. Your sandwich looks pretty good I must say.

    *This* is some nice sandwich! 😀

    I love having something different for breakfast on the weekend, it makes it seem so much more special! Those olives look delicious, I can never say no to olives!

  • Heidi June 26, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    Sherilyn – good point, Friday nights always tend to mean something special don't they 🙂 I love that.

    Kath – thanks!

    Maria – oooh me too, I love olives so much 🙂

    Mmm I do love a good steak sandwich, especially on a nice toasted bread with really good butter. I really shouldn't read your blog so close to dinner time! 😛

    Bit different to the Wonder White canned beetroot chewy steak milk bar sandwiches of childhood country road trips 😉 Better different, for sure 😀

  • Heidi June 26, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Lorraine – hehehe 🙂

    Hannah – I hope so! Ooops forgot beetroot in this – for shame!

    How funny, I had a steak sandwich on Saturday too – it must have been in the stars. I did however outsource the cooking of said sandwich, but mine came with a chilli gorgonzola sauce. It was amazing. I'm going to have to figure out how to make it myself.

  • Heidi June 27, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    chilli gorgonzola, wow, sounds awesome!! xo

    Hi Heidi,

    Absolutely love the fact that your steak sandwich has so much vegetables on it – that's the best part of any beefy bun for me, the juiciness and zest of fresh tomatoes and cucumber!
