    Steak sandwich with caramelised onion


    • 2 sirloin steaks
    • 1 Tbsp pepper
    • 1 Tbsb cajun seasoning
    • 1 Tbsp oil
    • 25 g butter
    • 2 onions, sliced
    • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
    • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 handful parsley, minced
    • 1 minced garlic
    • 1 Tbsp chilli sauce
    • 2 slices toasted baguette or any bread of your choice
    • 2 handfuls rocket



    Season steak with salt and pepper.


    Add the oil to a preheated grill pan. Add the butter, thyme and garlic. Add the steaks and sear for 4 minutes on each side. Leave to rest for 5 minutes, then cut into slices.


    In the same pan, cook the onion on low heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring, until softened and golden. Add the sugar and vinegar, and continue cooking on low heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring, until caramelised.


    To make the sauce, mix the mayonnaise, parsley, garlic paste, chilli sauce and remaining cajun seasoning.


    To assemble the sandwich, spread a thin layer of sauce on the toasted bread. Add a layer of caramelised onion, then some steak strips, then some rocket. Top with the remaining mayo sauce and the second slice of bread.


    TIP: Serve immediately with sweet potato fries.
