Steak Sandwich

steak sandwich that way

Yeah I’m back and relaxed and in new digs. Mmmm roomy. Here’s a steak sandwich I made for rock power before going to an exceptional Queens of the Stone Age gig at Perth Metro/Mad Max Thunderdome (true Chook true). It gave me strength to assist boisterous youth at the edge of the mosh pit and not worry when they sang into my ear. One grateful lad in a blue t-shirt gave me a hug and then wouldn’t let go. Bless.

I have to face up to the fact that most steak sandwiches are not the ones of my dreams (Saffy also dreams) but are overdone bits of minute steak in a skinny bit of whitebread. This one is good.

A large bit of rump steak tenderised. Don’t use a tenderiser, use your fist, trust me it’s good , you’ll feel better. Sliced up into meaty fingers and marinated in oil, soy, chinese wine, chilli powder, garlic, something called BBQ bush blend (lemon myrtle, bush tomato, and mountain pepperleaf), and potato starch for chinese velvetiness.

Onions caramelised with a pinch of brown sugar and a splash of Monteith’s Ale when softened.

Lengthy piece of foccacia carefully sliced along the middle. Bits of blue cheese along the bottom. Rare bits of steak on top of that with the onions and pour some of the pan juices ove the top. Place some spinach leaves on top. Then the top bit of bread and into the sandwich press until the cheese is melty.

    Prezzie! I like what you’re thinking but if steak is sandwiched between steak then you’re in some kind of infinite sandwich and I don’t think they’re are an infinite amount of cows. Maybe you could wrap it in crispy bacon instead.

    No worries and thank you for being the elbow in my rib cage on the shift. I like it a lot here, reminds me of my old place.

    I think this post is one of your best posts ever.

    If you need any help shifting the furniture around here, let me know.

    Hi Anthony,

    The sandwich looks great! I had no idea that you were moving. Was it a physical move, or was it just the blog?

    I’m confused!

    is this a move or just a real [new] domain name pointing at it…[cause i wonder why bloggers filthy prints are still all over it]

    I would never define “overdone bits of minute steak in a skinny bit of whitebread” as a steak sandwich. That’s just vile.

    Your steak sandwich sounds wonderful. Very nice idea to add blue cheese. (but where are the fried mushrooms and grilled peppers?)


    P.S. Congratulations on the move. I hope this means you will grace us with another song.

    Reid, Goat

    Both of you suffer from wrongthinking. Reid, are you the same person you were 1 hour ago. Where have you gone? Nowhere, but you are not what you were because that person has gone. There has been no physical move, yet.

    Goat, when you came to Japan, you had travelled far, yet were you a different person. No. You had moved yet you were the same. So too is the domain change. A paddler never leaves the same river. The hiker does.

    It’s true, yet they do, and people pay for it.

    I will have to get the studie set up.

    hiya, very nice new digs…that sarnie manages to come across as macho and decorous all in between the same two slices. like your nifty application of velveting in an unexpected context!

  14. Anthony’s avatar

    OMG look at that comment of mine. Hmm
    after the port
    make commenting nought

    Hey J
    Ta! You’ve captured the heart of the sandwich. Tough yet soft, velvety glove meets iron (rich) hand and they hang out for a while. Unexpected velveting will be a new feature of my new address.

    Sorry Anthony,

    You just confused me a bit more. So much so, that I don’t even know who I am.

    ♫♫…Ooh baby, ooh…said ooh!…♫♫ =P

    Erk I’ve made you think you’re Stevie Nicks. Ah well, sorry about that. : p

    Thanks for adding this post to Omni Australis. You know how I feel about this sambo. It’s special.

    This sandwich looks great. I used to put spinach on my steak sangers, but now I always use rocket. It’s delicious!

  20. Anthony’s avatar

    No worries saffron.

    Kelly – that’s a nice idea.
