104/18 – Rump Steak Sandwich with Caramelised Onions:
Time to cook the last of the Torloisk beef I got from Turner and George. I had some Rump steak to cook and quite fancied a sandwich. I decided upon Rump Steak Sandwich with Caramelised Onions.
Torloisk Highland Rump Steak – 2x400g for £28 from Turner and George.
I wrote up about the meat and why it’s such good quality in two previous cooks:
Two large onions sliced, some butter, brown sugar, red wine vinegar and rapeseed oil.
A chimney starter of Oxford Charcoal Oak Lumpwood was lit and poured over the base of the Weber Kettle for a single heat zone.
I took a 26cm Lodge Cast Iron Skillet (£28.99 on Amazon) then added oil and butter. Once the butter had melted I added the onions and brown sugar. After a few minutes the onions had softened down and taken on a nice colour so I added the red wine vinegar and left it to reduce down.
After a few more minutes the onions were looking (and tasting) awesome!
Time to cook the steaks. Salt and Pepper both sides.
Straight onto the lit coals for a dirty (or clinched) steak.
After a couple of minutes I flipped them over.
I kept an eye on the internal temperature with my Thermapen and when they were around 55c I took them off to rest.
Next I put the grill back on and lightly toasted the paninis.
Time to slice the steaks.
Always a relief when you see pink meat after you slice it!
Drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on the Paninis.
This shot shows the stages of construction for the panini:
1- Layer of English Mustard
2- Caramelised Onions
3- Sliced Steak
Time to put the lids on.
Yet again I was really impressed with this beef. It’s very tender, full of flavour and generally awesome. I believe Hawksmoor Edinburgh will be stocking it so I look forward to eating it there but I will also be ordering more from Turner and George!
The steak sandwich was fantastic, really tasty and a treat for a Saturday lunch. The bread was from the supermarket and wasn’t the best. Would be better with home baked bread or some from a proper baker next time.
