Steak sandwich with pickled vegetables


  1. To prepare the pickled vegetables; put all the vegetables into a large bowl, add the salt, mix gently, cover and set aside for 20 minutes, tossing occasionally.
  2. To prepare the rub; in a small bowl mix all the ingredients together and set aside.
  3. Transfer the vegetables into a large sieve and rinse under cold running water.  Allow the liquid to drain into a large bowl for 10 minutes.  Reserve 30ml/2tbsp of the collected liquid.
  4. Transfer to a large bowl and add the vinegar and sugar.  Toss gently and set aside for 30 minutes for the flavours to develop.  Add the reserve liquid and mint.  Season and stir.
  5. Heat a non-stick griddle pan.  Brush the steaks with the oil on both sides with the rub and cook for your preferred cooking time.  Alternatively, cook on a prepared barbecue or under a preheated moderate grill.
  6. Serve in ciabatta rolls dressed with salad leaves and topped with the pickled vegetables.
