“Pastrami Seasoned” Skirt Steak Sandwich

Pastrami Skirt Steak Sandwich?

If you like to cook, there’s a damn good chance you like to take sandwiches to the next level. Next level doesn’t have to be extreme like the food network would have you believe. Nah, it could be just heating the turkey on your turkey club up n som EVOO. Let’s just grab some stuff from the fridge and make a decent hot sandwich (we have no kids tonight, can you tell haha).

Hmmm, what to make. I have a half a skirt steak that I covered in coriander, pepper, and garlic (pastrami seasoning) and had vacuumed seal from a couple dinners ago. Actually it was the night I was making dinner and I almost broke my 8 years middle finger. sigh. I was helping him fill up the humidifier water tank while I was cooking. Once the water tank was full, and sitting in the sink, I went to pick it up out of the sink and give to him. But he was helping as well and when the tank slipped out of my hand it fell back into the sink, well, his fingers where in the way. They had no where to go besides into the top of the sink. Ugh. Mommy was happy, not. So as you can imagine, I didn’t finish cooking that night. We had to spend that night in the UrgentCare. Annnnnnnnyyyyyways, sheeesh, he’ll survive. 😛 I have some skirt steak left over. We don’t have much in the fridge as grocery day is tomorrow. Hmmm, lets see, uhm, eh, some cheddar cheese, spinach, oooh and an onion (this wasn’t in the fridge). Lets roll with that.

We are making a sandwich not a complicated dish with 700 specific recipes, so from here on to the end I’ll let the pictures do the talking.



I sliced it because the wifey doesn’t like her’s bloody. I like mine bloody so I’ll slice mine from a chunk that was fried first versus slicing and then frying like the wifey’s.
We use EVOO 99.9% of the time. If not EVOO then it will be sunflower seed or almond oil.

The picture before this one would lead you to believe the spread was yellow. No, the Srirach sauce makes it all turn orange.

The wifey’s sandwich. Pre-sliced. Very good but a little done a chewy for my tastes.

My sandwich. Almost looks like tuna huh? This is how skirt should be served.
My final pastrami seasoned skirt steak sandwich, minus the corned part. LOL


Very Good sandwich. Was it worth the 20 minutes it took? I didn’t have anything else to do and this was sure as heck better than a cold bologna sandwich. Yeh yeh, I love my basic bologna sandwich too. But this, this was quite a few steps up and easy. Don’t have skirt steak? So what, next time at the grocery store get some roast beef sliced up. Heat it up with garlic and onions that are already sauteed a little. Throw a slice of provolone on and you’ll get the picture. Sandwiches don’t have to be boring or just some meat cheese and bread. Heck, throw some tomatoes and lettuce on your sandwich. POW! Or only tomatoes, avocado, balsamic vinegar, mozzarella, and some spinach! I am hungry again. Until next post…make a sandwich!
