Blue Cheese Steak Sandwich: Ingredients
- Steak (sirloin or ribeye would be best)
- Blue cheese (gorgonzola is a good choice)
- Chopped parsley
- Watercress (rocket or baby spinach will also work)
Start off by slicing the onions and mushrooms. There is minimal prep involved in this dish.
Season the steak with salt and pepper and rub with some oil. Let it come up to room temperature, and heat up a large chargrill pan to a smoking hot temperature. The hotter the better!
Cook the steak for about 3 minutes on each side (depending on the thickness of the cut). Remove the steak from the heat and allow it to rest while you prepare the rest of the sandwich.
Slice the baguette open and drizzle with a little oil. Place it in the pan so it absorbs the lovely steak juices. When it’s grilled, set the bread to one side.
Add a little oil and fry off the mushrooms and onions over a slightly lower heat.
Once the mushrooms and onions have fully browned, add them on top of the baguette (which you should place on an oven proof tray or dish.)
Top the baguette with blue cheese. Don’t be shy with it, as this is meant to be a treat.
Pop the baguette in the oven at 200C/400F along with the steak for about 90 seconds to warm it back up.
Slice the steak and place it on the baguette. The best way to eat this is medium rare, but you can obviously cook it a little longer.
Top the sandwich with chopped parsley, fresh cress and the top half of the baguette.
Now, go enjoy the best blue cheese steak sandwich ever!
