Grilled steak sandwich

Grilled steak sandwich

Basically, this is a lefover steak sandwich that is best made the day after you have had that huge party for 8 people with food enough for 20, and you have leftovers even after giving everyone a doggy bag. So, make this simple, yet flavour-packed panini or sandwich, if you don't want to bake it (it tastes really good fresh, too). Of course, you can make it with freshly grilled meat too – it takes a bit longer, but it is worth it.

Ingredients

8 slices of toaster bread
8 tbsp Tigg's Tomato and Chilli Sauce
250 g mozarella or any soft melting cheese, cut into slices
80-100 g artichokes in oil, just the artichokes
12 olives, crushed
1 (aprox 200 g) steak or avocado for a veggie version
2 tbsp olive oil for steak, if cooking fresh
handful of basil
freshly ground black pepper to taste
sea salt to taste

to serve:
handfull of salad leaves
some chilli flakes, if desired
splash of olive oil for salad

Prepare

Spread one side of all of the bread with sauce. Layer cheese, artichokes, olives, steak and basil on four slices. Sprinkle some pepper and salt, and top with the other four slices. Heat a pan or panini pan. When hot, place the sandwiches on and close the pan. If grilling on a regular pan, then put a base of tarte pan on the sandwiches and something heavy on top, like a pestle mortar or a stone. If you want to serve the sandwich fresh, then let the flavours meld for an hour. Serve with salad and olives.
