How to Make Texas Steak Sandwich (sallye)


  1. Making Relish
  2. Cut tomatoes in half and place in food processor.
    Place olives in processor
    Cut red onion into wedges and place in processor.
    Dribble 2 tablespoons oil and red wine vinegar into the processor
    Pulse ingredients just until coarsely chopped (usually about 4 to 5 pulses will do it).

  6. Brush each side of bread slices with the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil and place in same skillet. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. (You will have to cook in batches)
  7. While bread is toasting, cut the steak across the grain into 1/4"thick slices and set aside.
  8. When first four slices of bread are toasted, place on individual plates. Spread relish generously over each slice. Top with spinach
  9. Add steak over the spinach, then spread any remaining relish over meat.
    Cover with remaining 4 slices of toasted bread.
