Best Steak Sandwich


This easy Best Steak Sandwich recipe will satisfy even the hungriest carnivore. For the recipe, I call for a skirt steak. This thin cut of beef is suitable for quick-cooking and has a great flavor. Besides, you don’t need much seasoning! A generous sprinkle of salt and freshly ground black pepper will perfectly hit the spot. For the best result, remember to start slicing with a rested cooked steak.

Actually, this recipe is one of my favorite lunch options. Especially for working from home days. Because at lunchtime, I like to eat something that is full of protein and will keep me full for the rest of the day. And this sandwich satisfies my craving every time. There is nothing better than a pan-seared steak topped with melted cheese. I like to add a handful of arugula and some sliced Peppadew peppers to top up my vegetable servings for the day. Finally, all of this comfort is piled high on a butter-toasted ciabatta roll. To seal the bread, I use a shortcut aioli. Perfect!
