Steak is great and all, but the Metro across the street sells these super thin “fast fry” steaks.  A part of me always looks at them and wonders if they’re only there to make you realize that thin steak is a waste.  Then there’s another part of me that looks at them and occasionally thinks… steak sandwich?

So I went for it.  Here’s what I put in.

  • 2 slices of tomato
  • a few leaves of spinach
  • mushrooms
  • thin steak
  • some vegetable oil
  • french baguette
  • Some bbq sauce

Heat the oil in a pan and cook the mushrooms for about 5-8 minutes.  Remove them when done.

Rub oil onto both sides of your steak, then add it to a hot pan.  30-60 seconds later, turn it.  30-60 second after that, remove.

Assemble sandwich.

In the picture above you can see that I used some BBQ sauce.  If I make this sandwich again, I would say forgo that because it made the mushrooms constantly slide out.  This turned the whole sandwich eating experience into something far too stressful, not to mention it made a potentially delicious warm sandwich into a cold one.
