Fancy Schmancy Steak Sandwich

Someone posted a recipe on an Epicure website the other day, which was inspired by Jeffrey Saad's recipe for a Harissa Steak Sandwich. Since I grilled up some steaks last night for supper, I thought I'd try it out today with leftover steak for my lunch. I actually never looked up the recipe until now, so I just went with the main ingredients that had been posted on the Epicure website.

thinly sliced leftover steak
hamburger bun
lemon juice
fresh mint, chopped
sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped

Combine the mayo, harissa, lemon juice, mint, and sun-dried tomatoes to suit your taste. (I put about 1/3 c. mayo, 1/2 tsp. harissa, 1/2 tsp. lemon juice, 3 large mint leaves, and 2 sun-dried tomatoes.) Stir it together, and spread it on a hamburger bun. Lay the slices of steak on top and then add lettuce and tomato.
This mayo is delicious... I'm sure it will get a lot spicier after it sits in the fridge for a while, but the lemon and mint really lighten it up. Can't wait to make another one for lunch tomorrow!
Pin It!
