Beef, tomato, and green beans in a sandwich, believe me, it works.

  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 2


  • 2 brioche rolls
  • 1 pound New York strip or ribeye
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • mayonnaise, optional
  • sweet banana pepper, optional


  1. Wash the green beans, cut the ends, and cut them lengthwise with a knife. Place them in a bowl and add a splash of water and sprinkle of salt. Cook in the microwave for 6 minutes, taste, and cook until tender but still crisp. In my microwave, they take 8 minutes. Or cook on a pot in salted boiling water, 3-5 minutes. 
  2. Drain the green beans and cover with iced water to preserve the bright green color once cool. Drain and pat dry with paper towels and dress with salt and oil.
  3. Cut the steak into thin slices. Add salt and pepper to the meat.
