Steak Sandwich with Red Onion Marmalade

This is definitely a favourite in our house. It is ideal as a Friday night treat for the two of us (recipe halved) but it has also proved to be an extremely popular meal for family and friends. If you want a more substantial meal, serve this with some fries or potato wedges, or I've even served it with some stuffed mushrooms, however I find it's also great by itself or with a nice green side salad.

{It's hard to give exact quantities for the sandwiches as it depends on how big you want them to be but for 4 people 1 quantity of cheat's aioli and 1 of the red onion marmalade will definitely be enough.}

Serves 4

2 steaks of your choice – I used strip loin but sirloin also works well
1 French baguette or similar bread of your choice
Olive oil
Cheat's aioli (or you could use garlic mayo)
Rocket leaves
Salt & pepper

Season the steaks with a little salt and pepper on each side. Heat a frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil then cook the steaks for 3 - 4 minutes per side for medium rare (or you could cook them on a BBQ like we do for the same amount of time). Transfer to a chopping board, cover loosely with tin foil then leave to rest for 10 minutes. Drizzle a little oil over the bread and toast for a few minutes until golden.

To assemble the sandwiches spread a good amount of the aioli on the bottom of the baguette then top with a handful of the rocket leaves. Thinly slice the steak and place on top of the rocket. Add any juices from the steak to the onion marmalade then spoon some over the top of the steak.

    MeLikeyUK - Im almost embarrassed to say that I use my Panasonic Lumix (DMC-FH22) the majority of the time, however I'm in the process of learning how to use my husband's camera which is a Canon Rebel XSi...I also bought the book Plate to Pixel so I now just need to find the time to read it along with the instructions manual of the camera and get some practice shots!
