The super duper awesome sandwich

by soffiagudrun

This sandwich is so so so good. The combo is perfect. I am a ground beef fan, and don´t get me started on ground beef with melted cheese, match made in heaven!

The best bread to use with this one is focaccia or some sort of a soft bread. I made my own kind of a ciabatta made of a pizza dough. That worked well.
Get a good bread or make your own focaccia or ciabatta. Cut it in half.
Lay it on the table with the cut down.
Spoon few tbsp of mustard sauce on the bread. Top it with fried ground beef and few slices of cheese.

Make a sandwich

If you like jalapeno, slice a fresh one (or use canned) and put on top of the ground beef.

Put the sandwich in a panini grill and grill until the cheese has melted. (If you don´t have a panini grill but the sandwich in the oven.)

Serve with a glass of cold beer or some nice red wine.
Here is a link to video on how to make Ciabatta.
You can also make a pizza dough and form it as a ciabatta and bake in a 200°c hot oven for about 15 – 20 minutes. I love putting poppy seeds and sesame seeds on top of the ciabatta before baking it.
For the mustard sauce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2-3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp sweet mustard
  • 2-3 tbsp agave or maple syrup
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper
Taste it often and add more of what ever your taste bud find missing, more syrup if you like it sweeter, more of Dijon if you like that…
For the ground beef
  • 300 g ground beef
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cut in small pieces
  • Garlic clove, pressed
  • 1/2 onion, cut small
  • Dried oregano, 2-3 tsp
  • Salt and pepper
Fry everything on a pan.
…don´t forget the cheese 🙂
