Just in time to lay one of these babies on for Father's Day . . .

Here’s what you are going to need:

A loaf of hard crusted Italian bread, 3 ribeye steaks 1 lb mushrooms, an onion and some bacon.

Step 1.

Hollow out bread:


Step 2.

Cook that shit:

Try to leave the steaks a little rare as they will carry over cook a little more in the sandwich.

Step 3.

Shove one of the steaks in the bread:


Step 4.

Sauce the steak:

I like to have to halves of the sandwich different so I use half thick worchschire sauce and half dijon mustard and horse raddish sauce.

Step 5.

Layer of bacon:


Step 6.

Layer of Swiss cheese:


Step 7.

Stuff in as much of the mushroom and onion mixture you can:

Then the other steak along with the juices from the pan:

A little more sauce:

Top off with more Swiss:

Step 8.

Put the top of the loaf back on:


Wrap in butchers paper:


Wrap in foil:


Step 9.

Put a heavy cutting board on top to squish it down:


Step 10.

Add weight and wait . . .

I used 140lbs of weight and let it sit for 4 hours

Step 11.

Take weight off:


Step 12.

Cut and enjoy.

  1. Nice bro! TL do those for you or do you have to crank those out yourself? Got a recommendation for an inexpensive Red to go with?

    Never seen a sandwich like that b4. Looks grand. Two thoughts though. First, the ribeyes should be cooked on a grill over flames. That is my only change to the cooking aspect of that delicious looking finale'. Secondly, how tall is your 140lb. squisher? If she is 5'8" or 5'9" that also sounds perfect.

    1. Ooops! I had the imagery mixed up for the weight-just fixed it. Enjoy . . . and stay thirsty, my friend . . . S.L.

  3. You have deleted how long you should wait. You originally had down to leave the meal for about 4 hours ?, is this the recommended time ?

    1. Man I've been having so much trouble with this post - yes when I updated that photo with the weight I deleted the wait time - fixed now.

  4. Had this today. Daughters and wife cooked your for fathers day.
    AweSome. Goes great wIth bottle of red.
    Please suggest a heavy Worcester saUce recipe and mustard recipe.
    thank you. Enjoy the blog and enjoyed my lunch.

  5. I had those main pieces as separates yesterday minus the cheese. I did however have the very same Italian loaf from the QFC in Maple Valley, WA. Next year.

  6. why doesn't the packaging explode under the weights ?

  7. I only count 2 steaks and you cooked three?
