Uruguayan Steak Club Sandwich:
Chivito al pan

What's The Big Idea?

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!

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

NB: Unlike most recipes on our web site, the quantities below are for one individual serving.

  • 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

What To Do

  • 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
