This quick and easy SPAM® Steak Sandwich is perfect for BBQs, picnics or a quick summer lunch or dinner!
As the grilling season is finally here, we have been experimenting with lots of new recipes and here’s one of our favourites! A super easy and quick grilled SPAM® Steak Sandwich using high-quality baguette bread, paired with the classic mayo-lettuce-tomato combo!
This fuss-free sandwich is great when you want something easy but delicious and filling, and this sandwich is loved by kids and adults alike. It can be made using a grill, or your old trusty frying pan.
To make the steak sandwich you will need:
A 200 grams tub of SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham
1 sourdough baguette
a few lettuce leaves (I use Batavia lettuce)
HOW TO MAKE A GRILLED STEAK SANDWICH
If you’re using a grill, then lightly spray it with some oil.
If you’re using a frying pan, just add 1 tbsp of oil.
If you’re using a cast iron grill as I did for this recipe, lightly spray the steaks with oil.
Cut the SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham into thick slices before spraying them with oil. Then preheat the grill, and grill the steaks until they’re lightly browned and golden on both sides and you get these beautiful grilling marks.
Cut the baguette in half long-ways, and take the garlic clove and rub it on both sides. Toast the baguette on the grill or in the oven for a few minutes.
Slice the onion into rings, and either add them raw to the sandwich or saute them on a frying pan. If you’re using a grill, you can put them on the grill for a few minutes until they start to brown.
Open the toasted baguette and spread the mayonnaise on both sides. If you want to jazz things up a little, mix in some sweet chilli and sriracha sauce with the mayo and then spread it on the bread.
Lie the lettuce leaves over the mayo, followed by grilled SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham steaks, tomato slices, and onion rings.
Serve with coleslaw and cold ginger beer and enjoy!
SPAM® CHOPPED PORK AND HAM
SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham first appeared in the UK in 1941 during the war as an alternative to corned beef. It quickly became a very popular staple ingredient and could be found in every British kitchen.
Made from a minimum of 90% premium shoulder pork and leg ham, SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham is the perfect quick and easy meat for an alfresco feast that will impress friends and family. It’s already cooked in the can, to seal in the goodness and ensure safety.
And for extra convenience, the lightweight and easy to open tub makes it even easier and convenient to enjoy SPAM® Chopped Pork and Hamin the great outdoors.
The 200g tub is currently available in the UK from Sainsbury’s and Asda. 200g and 340g cans are also available from all major UK supermarkets.
