The Perfect (for the moment) Steak and Cheese Sandwich.




We love cheese. I mean REALLY love cheese. Sharp, soft, spreadable...it doesn't matter, as long as it's cheese.

Weight gain has been a problem here at the Homesteading In Maine house this winter, so we have been trying to cut back on all foods, not just cheese, but I think cheese has been the hardest. We are to learning to use it as a condiment, not the main course.

That is where this sandwich comes in. It's full of steak, with just the right amount of cheese melted on top.

First we saute some onions in lard (butter is fine) until they are just soft. We then add sliced steak and cook to medium (our preference).



The sandwich is toasted in the broiler of our gas stove. We first toast one side of the bread. Then flip the bread and add the steak and onion mixture, topping with cheese. Any melt-able cheese will work great.

The slices go back into the broiler until the cheese is melted. We then add mayonnaise and put the two halves together.

Pure heaven.

  3. It does looks delicious! I love cheese but lately been having problems digesting milk and milk products. It's terrible for someone who loves cheese like me. That is a beautiful sandwich.

  4. Thanks, Angela. I agree, it would be horrible not to be able to eat cheese. I have been trying to eat less of it and even that is hard!
