The humble sandwich goes haute. Build a better sandwich with a few fresh ingredients and some creative upgrades.


Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar , or honey
  • 1 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 500 g rib steak , trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 3 green onions , thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 onions , thinly sliced into rounds
  • 4 slices swiss cheese
  • 4 Kaiser rolls , sliced in half

Instructions

  • Whisk soy sauce with garlic, sugar and sesame oil in a small bowl. Season with pepper. Add steak and stir so marinade coats slices completely. Stir in green onions and set aside.
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add oil, then onions. Cook, stirring often, until onions turn brown, 5 to 6 min. Transfer onions to a bowl. Add half of the steak slices to pan. Cook, stirring frequently, until no pink remains, about 2 min. Transfer to a bowl. Repeat with remaining steak.
  • Layer onions, meat, then cheese on bottom halves of rolls. Sandwich with top halves and serve immediately.
