Chicken. It’s what for dinner.
As you know, I’ve been trying to mix it up a bit around Casa de Blog is the New Black.
That doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue now, does it?
After settling on steak as the main component, it was time to give man food a makeover.
Steak and Cheese Sandwiches
Directions Worcestershire sauce… yea. Something I have now added to my pantry staples list… because mid-recipe I realized I didn’t have any. I know. Luckily, my good friend Google came to the rescue! Vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce Ingredients
Season steak with salt and pepper.

Vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce
- Apple cider vinegar, ½ cup
- Water, 2 tbsp
- Soy sauce, 2 tbsp
- Brown sugar, 1 tbsp
- Garlic powder, ¼ tsp
- Mustard powder, ¼ tsp
- Onion powder, ¼ tsp
- Ginger, ¼ tsp (minced)
- Cinnamon, a pinch
- Pepper, a dash
Mix all ingredients in a pan over medium heat. Allow it to boil and then simmer on a low heat for 45 seconds more. Let it cool before using. One tablespoon of this can be used to substitute an equal amount of Worcestershire sauce.
The flavors of the peppers, onions and steak together with the garlic were excellent. I’d recommend adding more garlic if you you’re a fan, like me.
But… my honest opinion?
Liked but not loved.
Lloyd’s honest opinion?
Loved not liked.
Don’t get me wrong- it was a great sandwich, but unfortunately, it tasted too healthy. I think it was lacking cheese!
More cheese please!
I ended up just picking off the meat and vegetables and eating it without the bread and cheese. I think the sauce was a bit more “soy” than anything else… so it tasted more like stir fry on a roll. Not bad at all, just not what I was going for!
Sometimes you have to just throw the rules out the window and settle for the real deal.
The irony lies in the fact that I tried to make this healthier (for me) and Lloyd was the one who really liked it.
