A big, juicy Steak Sandwich!
Let’s savor the essence of a remarkable culinary creation – behold, the Steak Sandwich! While most sandwiches are delightful, this one stands in a league of its own.
I must admit, calling it a “sandwich” seems almost ironic, considering it’s a far cry from the typical ham, lettuce, and tomato variety I munched on while setting up to photograph these heavenly Steak Sandwiches. But trust me, this is a taste sensation you won’t want to miss.
Let me introduce you to the star of this show – Bavette, a fantastic value secondary beef cut hailing from the flank and skirt steak family. Also known as flap meat, sirloin flap steak, and sirloin tip, it’s an Australian gem that deserves more attention. I can understand why it might be hard to find, as butchers might keep it for themselves – it’s that good.
Cooked to perfection, Bavette delivers tender slices of beef that practically melt in your mouth, boasting a delightful beefy flavor. Slice it across the grain, and each bite becomes a tender sensation.
My preferred method involves using a thick piece of beef, sliced generously and piled high onto the sandwiches. But if you’re looking for a quicker option, “quick sear” cuts, often labeled as “minute steaks,” are a viable choice. Keep in mind, though, not to overcook them, as they can become dry.
Now, let’s talk about the magical touch that elevates this Steak Sandwich to gourmet status – caramelized onions. Yes, they take a little time to make, but they’re worth every second, turning this humble creation into something truly extraordinary.
With endless possibilities to customize your Steak Sandwich, from basic to gourmet, it’s a culinary adventure worth embarking on. So, why not treat yourself tonight? Grab a beer, set the mood with music, sear that steak, and indulge in the masterpiece that is the Steak Sandwich. You won’t regret it!
