The very best for Great British Beef Week
22 Apr 2016


In such a fast-paced world family dinners can be a bit of a frenzy, but fear not families, the humble steak sandwich is a tasty and time saving saviour.  
 
With Great British Beef Week commencing on 23rd April, Aldi has explored the skills and ingredients behind making a picture perfect and simply scrumptious steak sandwich. 
 
The journey of every steak sandwich starts by carefully selecting the finest British beef, which is easy at Aldi as it is the largest retailer of premium steaks in the UK and the only British retailer that sources all of its core range of fresh meat from British-based, Red Tractor assured farms.
 
Tony Baines, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “At Aldi, we pride ourselves on offering customers the best of British all year round. Our British Beef offering emphasises our long-term commitment to supporting British Farming and reinforces that premium quality products can be enjoyed at everyday low prices.”
 
So now you know where to start, let’s move on to creating perfection.
 
First: Best cuts
Choosing your cut is an important step in creating a flawless filler for your sandwich. Aldi has a wide selection of cuts that will make your mouth water and with choices which include rump and ribeye to sirloin and fillet there is something for every taste.
 
Specially Selected 28 Day Dry Aged Rump Steak (£3.79) will create a robust and meaty sandwich and tastes even better griddled or fried. For a lean and tender meat, with just a bit of fat, try the Specially Selected Dry Aged Sirloin Steak (£4.49) or if you’re craving a rich juicy and truly beefy flavour choose the Specially Selected Dry Aged Ribeye Steak (£4.49). For a truly tender meat give the Specially Selected Fillet Steak (£4.99) a go.
 
Next: Chef your way to a succulent steak
For a steak connoisseur the only sensible way to cook a steak is rare, but whether you like your steak rare, medium or well-done, Aldi’s steaks can be cooked any way you please.
 
Ensure the pan is piping hot and take the time to season the steak while waiting. Sprinkle the steak with salt, pepper and oil and add to the pan, if it doesn’t sizzle take it off and heat the pan some more.
 
According to experts the key to a succulent steak is frequent flips. Timely turnover means neither side has the chance to burn and avoids loss of juices in the meat leaving it deliciously juicy!
 
Finally: Building a masterpiece
The best steak sandwich will encompass fresh, thick, crusty bread, butter and a choice of salad depending on preference; go fancy with rocket and watercress or stay safe with lettuce, onion and tomato.
 
To create the ultimate moist cheese steak sandwich choose a selection of cheeses, whether it be cheddar, parmesan, philly cheese or monterey jack, pick your favourite and layer it up.
