Steak and Portobello Mushroom Baguette

Steak Bagette

Rob went out for an Indian meal with friends last night and I stayed home for a quiet night in with the dogs, so I was cooking just for myself. I didn’t fancy spending ages in the kitchen just for dinner for one so I wanted something quick and easy. But there was to be no girlie, light snack for me, oh no. Instead, I went for a huge man-sized steak baguette with a fried and sliced Portobello mushroom (which you can’t see in the photographs as it was hidden under the steak) and rocket. I devoured the lot. It was glorious.

    Giant slurp.

    The finest of all possible snacks I think.

    Did you have horseradish on it too? I feel it would be perfect with horseradish, the pure grated kind, not the creamy tame version.

    Hmm, not keen on horseradish myself, but for someone who does like it, you're right, it would go perfectly.

    It was so good, I'm drooling just thinking about it.

    My goodness. I haven't had a steak sandwich in years and would gladly eat that right now! Delicious.

    This looks delicious! I think simple but tasty meals like this are the best option when you cook for one.

    I'b be happy to eat with you the next time you're alone. Your photos are terrific and I suspect your baguette tasted every bit as good as it looks.

    Was the steak's thickness any hindrance to eating it in sandwich form? I know others (mainly those from Philadelphia) slice their steak as thin as possible…not only for taste, but for ease of eating.

    Looks incredible though. I could imagine that a good compound butter would be amazing on this.

    I have made so many Mushroom trying to find the perfect one. This could be the one.

    That baguette looks heavenly! I just discovered a Ham, Brie and Cranberry baguette down at EAT for lunch but that now seems like a tonka toy in a drag race compared to this.

    Steak and mushroom… two of my favourite foods! I think some fried onions would be beautiful in this too! Thanks for sharing (I'm off to the kitchen now, look what you've done hee hee)

    Just discovered your blog, looks lovely, and I agree with your choice for a single portion supper, who cares if it's not easy to eat, no one else there to see! Good luck with the book.
