First things first, the CellarVie Wines
team cannot lay claim to being responsible for the making of the ‘Ultimate Sandwich’. This remarkable feat of culinary engineering, complete with the beautiful pictures displayed below, arrived in our inbox courtesy of an anonymous email chain on Tuesday afternoon. Jamie Oliver would undoubtedly and perhaps quite correctly, not endorse this as a healthy meal, and it certainly isn't for the faint-hearted but we thought it was a bit of fun nonetheless. So feast your eyes on the ‘Ultimate sandwich’…
Ingredients (a guideline)
1 hard crusted Italian bread
3 rib eye steaks
8 rashers of unsmoked back bacon
Swiss Cheese slices
Worchester Sauce, Dijon Mustard, horseradish or condiments of your choosing.
Salt and pepper to season.
[See images below]
Line up the ingredients and brace yourself for something very special indeed.
Hollow out the hard-crusted Italian bread.
Rare cook the steaks [they will continue to cook whilst in the sandwich].
Fry the bacon, onions and mushrooms [as eloquently pictured above].
Place one of the cooked steaks in the hollowed out bread.
Apply condiments of your choosing: The anonymous ‘chef’ used Worchester Sauce, Dijon Mustard and horseradish.
Layer the cooked bacon on top of the steak and sauces.
Place a layer of Swiss cheese over the bacon.
Stuff in as much of the mushroom and onion mixture as you can [sic]
Place the other steak along with the juices from the pan on top of the now layered first steak.
Add more sauce.
Top off with another layer of Swiss cheese.
Place the top half of the hard-crusted Italian bread back on.
Wrap in butcher’s paper.
Wrap in foil
Place a heavy cutting board on top of the sandwich to squish it down.
Now weigh it down and wait. [the anonymous chef suggests the following: ‘140lbs of weight and let it sit for 4 hours'].
Remove the weight.
Slice in half and enjoy the ‘Ultimate Sandwich’.
