Recipe - Steak and Tomato Sandwiches
As the returning reader will know, I've been on a bit of a tomato rampage recently. Guess what, here's another recipe that's using tomatoes. This time they're pan fried and not oven roasted so at least there's some variation.
I was in the mood for a steak sandwich but wanted to freestyle the concept a little bit. This is what I came up with and I think it worked well. It is definitively juicier than what the steak sandwiches I normally cook.
Tell you what, it's getting late and I'm tired so let's head over to the recipe itself...
Ingredients (makes 2 sandwiches)
250g rump steak, sliced fairly thinly
1 onion, cut into wedges
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
1 tbsp cajun spice
3 - 4 medium tomatoes, first halved then each half cut into quarters
Fresh flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
1 baguette - ends trimmed, cut into half and then split each piece about 3/4 through
Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Fry the steak until nicely browned. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
Add the onion, pepper and spice to the same pan. Fry, stirring continually, until the onion starts to brown. Add the tomatoes and simmer until the sauce thickens nicely - about 15 minutes. Stir now and then and feel free to break up the tomatoes.
Once the tomato sauce is nice and thick return the meat to the pan and stir it in together with the parsley.
Spoon the steak and tomato mixture into the baguettes.
