Aug 8: Cheddar & Apple; Tuna & Avocado; Steak Sandwich

Lunch

Today’s sandwiches include a repeat of yesterday’s Cheddar & Apple (before the Apple goes off), along with a Tuna, Avocado & Capers.

  • Dave’s Killer Bread is 66c per serve
  • The Old Crock cheddar was $5.45 or 68c per serve
  • The Apple was 86c and we shared half, or 22c per serve
  • The Tuna Pouch is $1.99 or $1.00 per serve
  • An Avocado is $1.20 or 60c per serve
  • Add 35c for for Garlic Spread, Capers & Mustard.

We amped up the mustard a little today and got a better balance. While the Garlic Spread on the Tuna, Avocado & Caper sandwich was an accident, it worked particularly well and we’ll repeat it. Two great sandwiches for $3.51 per serve.

Dinner

We had Top Sirloin in our Keller Crafted meat box, which in Australia is known as Rump Steak, and it was a favorite of Foodie Philip growing up. As a cut of beef it’s a good balance of flavor and texture.

These dry aged steaks were mostly fat free and trimmed of any silverskin or connective tissue, which made them perfect for a Steak Sandwich. An Aussie style Steak Sandwich to be precise, with lots of grilled onion.

  • The top sirloin from the Keller Crafted delivery was $12.36 or $6.18 per serve
  • The Roasted Tomato Focaccia was $3.99 or $2.00 per serve
  • Sweet Brown Onions were $2.49 and we used about ⅓ or 42c per generous serve
  • The Lettuce mix adds 40c per serve
  • Pickled beets in vinaigrette are $1.69, of which we used about ⅓ or 28c per serve
  • Add 20c for Mustard Aioli.

The Focaccia wasn’t the best choice for bread as it fell apart, which did add an authenticity as every Aussie Steak Sandwich is served on White Bread, which inevitably falls apart during the eating.

Aside from the bread choice, this was a great sandwich. The steak was grilled perfectly during the latter part of the the onion fry off on a griddle in the BBQ Grill. Again, that’s authentically Australian.

Overall, it’s an expensive sandwich, at $9.48. but it was good.
