Grilled Steak and Cheese Sandwiches

Our local grocery store is Morrisons so since it is only a 10 minute walk away we were really excited to hear about our new cheaper Morrisons. From this past bank holiday weekend they have cut the prices on over a thousand of your favourite products. Not temporary reductions or supermarket smoke and mirrors but new every day low prices on the things you buy every week. How fab is that? So we headed to the store to see how much it would be to make one of our favourite recipes: Grilled Steak and Cheese Sandwiches.

If you haven't been to a Morrisons in a while now is the time to go. The new remodelled stores are amazing and remind me of grocery stores back home in America!

There are misters on the fruits, vegetables and herbs! These are common place in stores in America but I've only ever seen them at Morrisons in the UK!

We love that Morrisons have proper butchers in store. We've found that the meat at Morrisons is always a higher standard and better quality than other stores.

How drool worthy is the bakery counter? There are tons of freshly made creations like donuts, cupcakes, cookies and more! I was so tempted!

I was good though and stuck to the plan to get our ingredients for the steak sandwiches, lots of fresh fruit for smoothies and some few World Cup stickers for a certain little helper!

Steak sandwiches are one of our go-to meals and shopping for ingredients at the new cheaper Morrisons works out to only £3.12 per person! Plus lots of leftover peppers for Blondie Boy to snack on the rest of the week and some fly baguette for NotBlondeHusband to make a midnight snack! We cooked the sandwich two ways, regular for me and spicy for NBH.

Grilled Steak and Cheese Sandwiches

2 Scotch Beef Prime Popeye Rump Steaks
Medium Cheddar Cheese
Salad Peppers
Sliced Mushrooms
2 White Onions
Bird Eye Chillies
1 Baguette

1) Roughly chop one pepper into large pieces, chop onion. De-seed and finely chop four small bird's eye chillis.

2) Season steak. Regular sandwich seasoned with salt and pepper, spicy sandwich add dry chillis.

3a) For regular sandwich, pre-heat pan to a high heat. Add peppers and cook for five minutes until charred. Turn down heat, add onions and cook for a further five minutes, add mushrooms and cook for five minutes until onions are translucent and mushrooms are cooked.
3b) For spicy sandwich, pre-heat pan to a medium heat, add chopped bird's eye chillis and onions, cook for five minutes, add mushrooms and cook for five minutes more.

4) In same pan cook steak to desired temperature (we like medium, medium-rare).

5) Slice steak and put in baguette. Top with desired veg and cheese. Melt cheese under pre-heated medium grill.

6) Add desired sauce: mayonnaise on regular sandwich, sriracha on spicy. 

7) Serve and enjoy!

This is one of our go to dinners and I'd say we have it at least every two weeks since it is so easy and quick to make. It's a great way to enjoy steak without having to spend a lot of money. We find these are great on their own but you could serve with fries or a side salad, too!
