Chivito Steak Sandwich

Chivito is the name of a sandwich-style national dish in Uruguay, and consists primarily of a thin slice of churrasco beef, with mayonnaise, black or green olives, mozzarella, tomatoes, and commonly also bacon, fried or hard-boiled eggs and ham. It is served in a bun, often with a side of French fries. Other ingredients might be added into the sandwich such as beetroot (red beets), peas, grilled or pan-fried red peppers, and slices of cucumber.

 

Chivito Steak Sandwich
The star ingredient is a slice of churrasco (grilled, thin sliced beef), which is topped with slices of ham, bacon, lettuce and tomato, melted mozzarella cheese, and a fried egg. Optional toppings include cooked onions, olives, peppers, and pickles. Salsa golf, a mixture of tomato ketchup and mayonnaise that is popular in Argentina and Uruguay, is the perfect condiment for this sandwich.

Ingredients
  • 4 very large sandwich buns (large ciabatta rolls are good)
  • 2 beef eye fillet steaks, or 4 thin slices of grilled steak
  • 8 pieces bacon
  • 4 slices deli ham
  • 4 tomato slices
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • lettuce
  • mayonnaise
  • tomato sauce (ketchup)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Place a large skillet over medium heat and cook the bacon slices until crispy. Set aside on paper towels to cool.
  2. If using the fillet steaks, drain the excess bacon fat out of the skillet. Slice each fillet in halve crosswise, to make 2 thin steaks (4 total). Sprinkle with coarse salt, and use a mallet to pound the steaks even thinner.
  3. Heat the skillet over medium high heat until hot, and place steaks on the skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until desired doneness. Remove to paper towels to cool.
  4. Wipe the skillet clean. Melt the butter in over medium heat, and fry eggs sunny-side up until desired doneness.
  5. Preheat the grill.
  6. Assemble sandwiches: Spread inside of buns with ketchup and mayonnaise. Place lettuce slices over bottom half of buns. Top with a slice of beef, 2 bacon slices, a slice of ham, a slice of tomato, and a slice of mozzarella.
  7. Place sandwiches (uncovered) under the broiler briefly (keeping a close eye on them) to melt the cheese. Remove from oven and add the fried egg over the cheese, then top with the other half of the bun. Serve immediately.
