Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

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 <em>, large ciabatta rolls are good</em>
  • 2 beef eye fillet steaks, or 4 thin slices of grilled steak
  • 8 pieces bacon
  • 4 slices deli ham
  • 4 to mato slices
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • lettuce
  • mayonnaise
  • tomato sauce <em>, ketchup</em>
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Place a large skillet over medium heat and cook the bacon slices until crispy. Set aside on paper towels to cool.
  • 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 <em>(4 total)</em>. Sprinkle with coarse salt, and use a mallet to pound the steaks even thinner.
  • 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.
  • Wipe the skillet clean. Melt the butter in over medium heat, and fry eggs sunny-side up until desired doneness.
  • Preheat the grill.
  • 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.
  • Place sandwiches <em>(uncovered)</em> under the broiler briefly <em>(keeping a close eye on them)</em> 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.
