Uruguayan Steak Club Sandwich:
What's The Big Idea?
Chivito al pan
This isn't really a club sandwich in the strict sense, but that was the nearest equivalent I could think of to get across the basic idea of what a Chivito al pan is.
They are hugely popular in Uruguay, and there are many variations on this dish. Needless to say, they are best enjoyed with good company, a huge bowl of chips,
some cold beer and a great sporting event on the TV!
Here's the list of what you need:
NB: Unlike most recipes on our web site, the quantities below are for one individual serving.
What To Do
- 1 small thin steak, such as fillet mignon
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- One third of a baguette, or similarly sized bread roll
- 1 slice of ham
- 1 slice of mozarella cheese, large enough to just about cover the steak
- 1 hard-boiled egg, chopped
- 2 slices of tomato
- A little shredded lettuce
- Mayonnaise, salt and pepper to taste
- Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the steak until browned on one side
- Turn it over, and after a couple of minutes top with a slice of ham and a slice of mozarella
- Slice open the bread and spread mayonnaise on the inside
- When the cheese is melting, place the steak inside the bread, top with the egg, tomato and lettuce
- Season to taste, and serve straight away with chips
