James's Strawbridge's Steak Sandwich

James's Strawbridge's Steak Sandwich

Treat Dad to the ultimate steak sandwich this weekend with prime beef from Farmison & Co, handmade ciabatta by Hobbs House and a few little Tracklements extras to make it really zing.

Serves 2


For the steak:

1 large sirloin steak
2 cloves of crushed garlic
Sprigs of rosemary and thyme
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
Pinch of sea salt and cracked black pepper
50g butter


For the ciabatta:

1 Hobbs House ciabatta, sliced lengthways
2 tbsp mayo
Pinch of salt and pepper
2 tsp horseradish sauce


For the onions:

2-4 shallots, finely sliced
½ tsp chopped thyme
2 tsp rapeseed oil



  1. Season your steak generously and bring up to room temperature. Preheat your grill and cook the steak for 3-4 mins on each side for rare (longer if you like it medium or well done). Add butter and spoon the foaming butter over the steak for the past couple of minutes cooking. Allow to rest for 10-15 mins before thinly slicing.
  2. For the ciabatta, brush with mayo and season with salt and pepper. Then toast on a hot ridged griddle. Finish by spreading with a thin layer of horseradish sauce.
  3. Build the steak sandwich with salad leaves, rare steak and top with caramelised shallots.
