 Best-ever steak sandwich


  • 500-600 g rump or other steak
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp medium-cream sherry, (optional)
  • milled pepper
  • 2-3 tbsp butter
  • 2 large onions, sliced into rings
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 8 slice crusty white bread, toasted
  • 2-3 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • Lettuce leaves


  1. Mix together oil, sherry and pepper, and marinade the steak placed in a shallow dish. Set aside. (See alcohol substitutions under Ingredients)
  2. Heat butter in a frying pan, add onions and sugar, and cook over moderate heat until soft and slightly mushy.
  3. Heat a little olive oil in a suitable steak pan and sauté the garlic. Add the steak (keeping marinade aside) and fry on both sides until done according to taste - preferably medium rare.
  4. Stir marinade into pan with the onions and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Slice the steak fairly thickly. Arrange slices of toast on a plate and top with lettuce, steak, a dollop or two of mustard and the onion mixture.


    Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
    (Joh 6:27)
