When I think of steak, my mind flies right to a juicy steak on a platter with a baked potato, salad, and some garlic bread. Readers in the BellaOnline Sandwiches Forum see steak as a great sandwich filing. They’ve invented any number of sandwiches that look extremely tasty.
Great steak is hard to find. If your steak is not as tender as you would like it to be, there are a couple of simple things that you can do. First, slice it into thin pieces. Also, slice against the grain of the meat. This makes it easier to chew. Enjoy your steak sandwiches. Those forum readers are pretty imaginative!
