Source: delicious. August 2004
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Serves 4 people
- 4 x 125g thin sirloin steaks
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lemon or lime, plus extra halves, griddled, to serve
- 1 ciabatta loaf
- 2 fat garlic cloves, halved lengthways
- small bag mixed green salad leaves
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp chilli sauce
Make the mayo. Put the mayonnaise, mustard and chilli sauce into a small bowl. Season and mix together.
Preheat a griddle or frying pan over a high heat. Brush the steaks with oil and cook for 2 minutes each side. Squeeze over some lemon juice.
Split the ciabatta lengthways then cut each half into 2 pieces. Brush the cut surfaces with a little more olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt. Using the same pan, griddle, cut-side down, over the highest heat for 2 minutes, until toasted and a little charred. Rub each with the garlic then spoon over some Dijon mayonnaise and a little green salad. Slice each steak in half, season lightly and put 2 halves on top of each ciabatta slice with a griddled lemon half to squeeze over the top.
