Each recipe comes from my new found food obsession, smitten kitchen. SK's Summer's Last Hurrah Panzanella recipe can be found here. I followed it pretty closely, but omitted the capers because I didn't have any and I forgot the garlic for the vinaigrette. Here's a tip: don't forget the garlic. The recipe for the Steak Sandwich is here. Her pictures obviously do the sandwich more justice. It was quite scrumptious...especially the spread, which I liberally applied to both halves of the bread. Next time I'll probably toast the bread a bit. Otherwise, it was a home run in my book (get it...home run. You know, because it was the All-Star Game).
The boy approved! And the AL won again. So, there are still some things over which I have no control.
BTW...did everyone else like the POTUS even more after watching him in the booth with Tim and Joe? I definitely would want to grab a beer with this President.
Toasting the bread cubes for the panzanella.
Love the summer colors.
The steaks generously seasoned with salt and pepper.
One side of searing down...on to the next.
Starting to caramelize the onions.
Prepping the bread with lots o' spread.
May be a little rare for some but not for me.
Now that's a sandwich.
