Saturday's little pick-me-up - Steak Sandwich

This Friday gone I went down the pub with some colleagues for a couple of beverages. Needless to say there wasn't much food involved, or rather none at all.

Waking up on Saturday I felt a little bit brittle and very hungry so I decided that a steak sandwich was what was needed.

I spread the bottom half of a freshly baked (purchased, not home baked) roll with some mayonnaise. On top of that I put some rocket (arugula) and a couple of slices of juicy tomato. I caramelized sliced onions with olive oil and balsamic vinegar that went on top of the tomatoes, followed by the steak. To finish it all off I crumbled some gorgonzola on top off the steak and let that melt.

Exactly what I needed....


  1. Your sandwich looks like the perfect morning after solution to a night out. The Gorgonzola makes the sandwich for me. I could never imagine a steak sandwich without it.

  2. Michele,

    It did rock, even if I say so myself ;)

    The best ever 'day-after-the-night-before'-meal is a fry-up from The Gorge in Reading. Since I've moved to Abingdon I can't go there any longer. :(

    There's a review of the place somewhere on my blog. If you ever get to Reading and feel the need for a fry-up, that's the place to go.
