Ingredients

QUICK GARLIC AIOLI (NOTE 1)

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise , preferably whole egg
  • 1 large garlic clove , minced

CARAMELISED ONION (NOTE 2)

  • 3 large onions , peeled and finely sliced (brown, white or yellow)
  • 40 g / 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt & pepper

STEAK SANDWICH

  • 600 – 700 g / 1.2 – 1.4 lb grilling beef steak (Note 3)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tomatoes , thickly sliced
  • 60 g / 2 oz rocket /arugula or other lettuce of choice
  • Mustard (I use American)
  • Turkish bread , about 60cm / 2 feet long (or 4 rolls / buns of choice)

Instructions

 

  • Garlic Aioli: Mix mayonnaise and garlic together. Set aside for 30 minutes+ for the flavor to develop (do not keep for more than 3 days tops).
  • Caramelized Onion: Melt butter in a skillet over medium low heat. Add onions and stir to coat in butter. Place lid on (or place a baking tray over skillet) and leave for 20 minutes, stirring once or twice. Remove lid then cook for a further 20 minutes, stirring every now and then, until onion is golden (increase heat slightly if the color is not changing). Add sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper. Cook for a further 10 minutes until jammy. Remove from heat and keep warm.

BEEF

  • Take beef out of fridge 20 minutes before cooking. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in a skillet over high heat (or heat BBQ). Cook steak to your liking – if using a secondary cut like Bavette, skirt or flat iron, it’s best medium rare.
  • Transfer beef to a plate, cover loosely with foil and rest for 5 – 10 minutes. Then slice thinly against the grain.

ASSEMBLE SANDWICH

  • Cut Turkish bread into 15cm/6″ lengths and split into half. Toast lightly.
  • Spread the bottom piece generously with garlic aioli. Top with rocket, then tomato slices, beef, caramelized onion. Spread the top piece of bread with mustard then place on top.
