AoM Month of Sandwiches Day #5: The Drunken Steak Sandwich
Posted By Brett On April 5, 2013 @ 4:12 pm In Cooking,Food & Drink,Manly Skills,Travel & Leisure | 10 Comments
Welcome to Day #5 of the AoM sandwich project . Last month we asked readers for their best sandwich recommendations. Out of 483 submissions, we picked 20 to highlight here on the site each weekday during the month of April. At the end, we’ll publish all the entries into an epic man-sandwich cookbook. Enjoy.
Adam submitted an interesting take on the traditional steak sandwich, and by interesting, I mean all the ingredients are saturated with Rickard’s beer . This looked a bit more challenging to make than the other sandwiches on the list, so I thought it would be fun to highlight a more complex creation. And since I’m actually a teetotaler myself, I figured it would be humorously ironic to cook with more beer than I’ll drink in a lifetime. Will inebriating the ingredients make a ho hum steak sandwich really hum? Let’s find out.
This was a great sandwich. So much going on here flavor-wise. The smoky spiciness of the chipotle mayo went wonderfully with the beer-accented meat, onions, and peppers. I think if I were to make it again, I would have used flank steak instead of strip. I also think it would have been better with a baguette as called for in the original recipe.
The only downside to this sandwich is the length of time it takes to create. Not counting the few hours I marinated the steak, total prep time was about 40 minutes. Of course, things always take longer the first time you make them, so I’m sure I could reduce the time with practice. Nevertheless, as I typically turn to sandwiches as utilitarian, quick-to-assemble lunchtime grub, this would be one I’d personally save for dinner. A side of steak fries would go well with this sandwich. Natch.
