Open Face Steak Sandwich-Day 3 “Lets Bake”
On day 3 of “Lets Bake” I put my final loaf in the oven and wondered what kind of sandwich I can make with this fabulous bread. I had a small rib eye steak that I got from the CSA and decided to do a quick steak sandwich. The steak is dry brined with salt,peppper and garlic flakes and pan seared. I made a citrus herb mayo, sliced some tomato and piled on some micro greens (from the CSA) and it was absolutely delicious. The soft, still slightly warm bread with the tender juicy steak and veggies made a satisfying and hearty sandwich.
1 rib eye steak (grass fed and organic)
garlic powder granulated (good one like from Penzy’s)
salt and pepper
1 tbs mayonaise
some parsley,taragon and lemon zest (for the herbed mayo) you can use whatever you have and like
lettuce or some sort of greens
Take steak out of the refrigerator, pat dry and sprinkle the salt, pepper and garlic flakes on each side of the steak and let it come to room temperature about 15-20 minutes for one steak. Get your fry pan hot, add a little olive oil and put your steak in, let it cook undisturbed for 4 minutes. While your steak is in the pan, chop the herbs and mix with the mayonaise, grate a little lemon zest in and stir. Clean your greens and slice the tomato. Turn the steak over and sear for 4 minutes. When it’s done take it out of the pan and lay on cutting board and let rest for 15-20 minutes. Slice a nice size piece of bread, slather with herbed mayo. Lay slices of tomato and a handful of greens. After steak has rested slice thin pieces and lay on top of the greens.
I can’t think of a better way to use this great bread than a hearty sandwich.
