Warm Steak & beetroot sandwich with honey & mustard dressing

Warm Steak & beetroot sandwich with honey & mustard dressing

    A great big steak sandwich. That'll keep the winter chills away!

    • Preparation: 10 mins
    • Cooking: 15 mins
    • Serves: 2

    What you need:

    For the honey mustard dressing:

    • 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
    • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
    • 1 tbsp honey
    • 1 small clove garlic, crushed
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper

    For the sandwich:

    • A 2-3cm fat ribeye steak (approx. 225g weight)
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • A little sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
    • 2-4 shallots, finely sliced (for a summer version, replace the shallots with a handful of peppery watercress leaves)
    • 2-3 cooked beetroot, sliced
    • a ciabatta loaf, cut in half & sliced open

    What you do:

    1. Firstly, make the dressing by putting everything in a small jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake well until thoroughly mixed and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    2. Heat the oil in a heavy based frying pan until smoking hot. Season the steak on both sides with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper. Lay the steak in the pan and fry, undisturbed, on one side for 2-3 minutes. Flip over and fry on the other side for a further 2-3 minutes. For a 2-3cm thick piece of meat these timings should give you a medium steak. Cook a little less for rare, a little more for well done. Remove the steak and allow to rest on a warm plate tightly covered in foil.
    3. Add the shallots to the frying pan and fry for a few minutes over a medium high heat until softening and beginning to caramelise. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
    4. Lay the ciabatta, cut side down, in the frying pan and toast lightly for a minute or two.
    5. Slice the steak into 1cm wide strips across the grain and divide between 2 pieces of ciabatta. Top with the sliced beetroot and fried onions. Drizzle over a little of the dressing and cover with the top of the ciabatta. Serve immediately.
    6. Any leftover dressing with keep in the fridge for at least a week.

Beetroot is enjoying something of a revival as people discover there’s more to this great British vegetable than they thought. You can now buy beetroot in so many different ways – raw, cooked, marinated, lightly pickled - there’s so much to beetroot than the jar of pickled beetroot many of us will remember from our childhood.
