DH made this a few months ago and I never got around to posting it. He said he really enjoyed it and wants to make it again soon. So, I thought I would share it here. I just used a link so you all could see the picture. lol

Chivito (Uruguay’s Amazing Steak and Egg Sandwich)

  • Yield: Makes 2 sandwiches
  • Equipment: A large (10- to 12-inch) skillet and a plate lined with paper towels

  • 2 kaiser rolls
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, preferably Hellmann’s
  • 2 Boston lettuce leaves, rinsed and patted dry with paper towels
  • 4 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise
  • 2 beef steaks, each 3 to 4 ounces and cut or pounded 1⁄4 inch thick
  • Coarse salt (kosher or sea) and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 slices Jack or mild cheddar cheese, each about 1 ounce
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 luscious red ripe tomato, thinly sliced
Step 1: Set up the grill for two-zone grilling (medium and medium-high) and preheat. Brush and oil the grill grate. Lightly toast the cut sides of the Kaiser rolls over medium heat.
Spread the cut sides of the rolls with mayonnaise. Line the bottom half of each with lettuce leaves.
Step 2: Put the bacon strips in a cast iron skillet and cook over medium heat until the fat has rendered and the bacon is crisp and golden brown. Transfer the bacon to a folded paper towel to drain, but leave the skillet on the heat. Place 2 strips of bacon on each sandwich on top of the lettuce.
Step 3: Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Grill over medium-high heat until cooked to taste: 2 minutes per side for medium. Place the steaks on the sandwiches and top with cheese.
Step 4: Crack the eggs into the skillet and fry in the bacon fat until crisp and browned, 2 minutes on the first side, 1 minute on the second side. Slide the eggs onto the cheese.
Step 5: Top the eggs with the tomato slices and a little more salt and pepper. Close the sandwiches and cut in half for serving.

Chris, since you went to the trouble of posting the recipe for me, I hope you don't mind me bumping it back up. This site is amazing, so active and so many posts every day that things disappear so fast. lol
