The Steak Sandwich to end all Steak Sandwiches!

This steak sandwich we are making today is the best one you will ever have! Of course, it doesn't hurt that we are starting with the king of steaks, filet mignon. Add the perfect garnish, and an incredible semi homemade roll, and sandwich nirvana is upon you!! Let's get started~

This is the bread I used to make the buns for our sandwiches.
You can get it in the freezer section of your grocery store.
We only use 1/2 of a loaf for this menu.
Actually, we use half of a half for each roll.
This is a 1/4 of the loaf, shown above.
You will need a bread pan for each roll.
You can use a bread pan like above, or you can
even use a disposable bread pan, if you do not have 
2 aluminum ones.
The loaves come 3 to a package.
Take a loaf out and put it in the refrigerator 
to defrost slightly. When you can cut through the 
bread loaf, cut it in half. Then cut the half in half.
Spray your pan with pan oil.
Place the bread in the pan.
Pull a piece of plastic wrap from the roll.
Cut the wrap, then spray it with pan oil.
Cover the pan with the plastic, oil side down.
The oil will help you remove the plastic easier,
once the loaf has risen.Place the pans in a warm place 
so that the bread can rise. I used the top of my refrigerator. 
It took about 3 hours for it to rise to the height shown below.
When your bread is risen like this one, bake it in the oven
for about 25-30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees.
This is how it looks when it is done.
Take it out of the oven, and let it cool on a cooling rack.
After about 15 minutes, take it out of the pan.

Here is your finished roll for your sandwiches. Yummy!
It's time to make our sandwiches!
You will need:

Romaine Lettuce
Provolone Cheese
approximately  1/4 pound Filet Mignon per sandwich
Pound your steak down to flatten it some. 
Place the meat on a cutting board, cover with plastic wrap, 
and you can use a rolling pin, or anything with substantial
weight if you don't have a meat mallet.
Cook your steak until it is to your liking. I like mine
cooked to medium rare. Make yours how you like to eat it.
 Cut your bread to get your sandwich ready.
Dress your bread.
Cut your steak as needed, into small pieces as shown.
 Don't forget your cheese!
Enjoy your steak sandwich!

Thanks for joining me today for one of my favorite meals!
Tomorrow we will be making the pasta salad you see on
the plate with the sandwich!
Remember the salad dressing we made yesterday?
We will be using it to dress our pasta salad.

Just a Note~ Yesterday I referred to the mini caprese skewers
as the appetizer. It was not. The skewers were the salad portion of the meal.
I apologize!!!
The appetizer for this meal was the quesadilla!!!

Thank you!
See you tomorrow!

  1. I've never seen bread you buy from a freezer and bake like that. Curiouser and curiouser...

    Oh steak, I love thee madly. *sigh* And now I'm starving.
