Recipe by Manami

This was conceived out of necessity! We had this on the menu but not all the ingredients we had ordered had arrived. So we combined a few different recipes and a wonderful feeding fest was had by all. Going to the grocery store to pick up the items is not an option, unless you want to shop for approximately 100 people retail. Am posting the salad with which we served the sandwiches.

Ingredients Nutrition


  2. Heat broiler with rack 6" from heat. (Or if you choose, grill them.).
  3. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, coriander, sugar, minced garlic, oregano, salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes.
  4. Coat steaks evenly on both sides with oil, then spice mixture, patting to adhere.
  5. Place half the steaks on a rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan. Broil without turning, until medium-rare, 5-8 minutes, depending on thickness.
  6. Transfer to a large platter, and cover with aluminum foil; let rest 10 minutes.

  8. Remember to slice across the grain when getting ready to make the sandwiches.
  10. Make dressing: In a medium bowl, place sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, poppy seeds and chili powder; season with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine. (Use a tight fitting-lid jar and combine all ingredients by shaking vigorously - WITH TOP ON! Then keep cool in refrigerator).
  11. Remove dark outer leaves from each head of romaine, leaving the heart; place leaves in plastic bag lined with paper towels, and refrigerate for future use.
  12. Slice hearts in half lengthwise. When ready, place one half on each plate; top with dressing. Sprinkle with scallions and serve with sandwiches.
