Panini Steak Sandwich

A Panini Steak Sandwich. I’m a sucker for a good sandwich! What do you mean “it can’t be” Of course it can,  I mean really, it has all my favorite ingredients….bread(in whatever form or shape), butter, fresh lettuce and whatever else I fancy to slap on.
Have you, fellow foodies also experienced that  friends and family are reluctant to invite us for a meal and their excuse most of the time is that they feel threatened or intimidated by us in the kitchen.
I have always said that even buttered toast tastes better if it was made by someone else…..This sandwich, I am sure might seem intimidating, but I can assure you it is sooo easy!
A Panini Steak Sandwich sounds quite pretentious doesn’t it? Ok, non-foodies, it is a good piece of bread with a good piece of steak and some green stuff. Simple enough for you? Oh, enough with the teasing. For me a sandwich really has 4 important elements..

– good bread
– fresh ingredients
– something “wet” to keep all the elements together – cream cheese, chutney, relish etc.
– a good sandwich has texture – soft, crunchy, creamy and slightly chewy

Panini Steak Sandwich. I have used some interesting combinations in sandwiches, so do play around with  different breads and different fillings. Fancy a Salami and Beetroot Chutney Sandwich? Or maybe a Beetroot and Cottage Cheese is more your thing! Why not grill a simple Cheese and Tomato Sandwichand change it into something totally different? Try something really unusual with this Caramelized Onion and Goat’s Cheese Ciabatta! So you see, it does not have to be so difficult, just be creative even if you fail sometimes, who knows, you might invent the next winning combo!

Panini Steak Sandwich. If however you are looking for a real substantial sandwich, something that will stick to the ribs for a good couple of hours, look no further. This Steak Sandwich is filling, healthy, ready in a flash and really, really delicious.

1 sirloin steak – about 150-200gr
juice of half a lemon
balsamic vinegar

To cook your steak to perfection, follow these simple stepsor marinade your steak for 1/2 hour in the lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Heat a griddle pan and when it is smoking hot, place the steak into the hot pan and sear on each side for about 2 minutes a side. In the meantime, heat some olive oil in another pan and add the peppers. Saute for a minute or so and add the other ingredients. When the peppers are softer, but still has a bite to them and caramelized, remove from the pan and  keep one side.
When the steak is cooked, remove from pan and let it rest for 5 minutes. Slice open the  panini and butter both halves. Place a layer of rocket leaves on the one half. Top with the sirloin and then with the roasted peppers. Spoon the pan juices over the sandwich. Serve immediately.

    I have just had my supper and now this has made me hungry again. I do agree with you, this has to be your best. If you can come up with something better I would love to see it.

    I am a sucker for a good sandwich too. A steak sandwich reminds me of my childhood and dinner with my family at Ponderosa.

    I don't mind a good sandwich too! Like you, if there are all my fav ingredients, I will be happy and be satisfied with just a sandwich, but a good one!

    I am a real sandwich person… In my mind… a sandwich could be had any time of day; wether it be morning, afternoon or night and this looks like a fine example!
