    DoveChocolatierinKY's Note:

    This is the Food Network's Ultimate Recipe Showdown winner, and is now on the menu at T.G.I. Friday's. This sandwich is fantastic! This is the ORIGINAL RECIPE, so what you order at the restaurant is actually their adaptation of the original chefs sandwich. The tender steak with the yummy plantains makes this sandwich addictive. Both versions are FANTASTICO!

    • 24 ounces skirt steaks
    • 6 ounces salted butter, melted
    • 1 cup cajun spices

    Chipotle Mayonnaise

    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili sauce

    1. 1
      Peel plantains, and cut in half widthwise, then cut in half lengthwise.
    2. 2
      In a large pot or deep-fryer, preheat vegetable oil to 325°F.
    3. 3
      Add the plaintains to the oil, and fry for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove them and place on a flat surface.
    5. 5
      Increase heat to 375°F.
    6. 6
      With a metal flat spatula, press down onto the plantains until they are flat, less than 1/4 of an inch.
    7. 7
      Using a knife to help scrape the plantain off the spatula, deep-fry the plantains again for 3 minutes.
    8. 8
      Pull them out and season with salt and pepper.
    9. 9
      Combine the breadcrumbs, cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt, paprika, oregano, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder to create Cajun spice.
    10. 10
      Dip each piece of steak into 4 ounces melted butter and then into the Cajun spice, covering both sides of the steak.
    11. 11
      Spread the remaining melted butter onto a flat top or metal skillet, place the steak on top and cook on both sides until medium or preferred degree of doneness.
    12. 12
      After the steak is done, slice it thinly against the grain.
    13. 13
      Combine the mayonnaise and chipotle sauce to make the Chipotle Mayonnaise.
    14. 14
      Onions: In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
    15. 15
      Slice the onion very thinly.
    16. 16

    17. 17
      Drop a little bit of onions into 375 F oil at a time to prevent sticking together. Cook for 1 minute and 30 seconds or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
    18. 18
      Build a sandwich by layering 1 fried plantain, 1 tbsp chipotle mayonnaise (spread coast to coast on bottom plantain), sliced steak, and 1/3 cup of shredded cheese. Place under the broiler for 1 or 2 minutes or use the microwave to melt the cheese. Then continue layering 1/2 cup of fried onion, 1 more tbsp chipotle mayonnaise, spread coast to coast on top plantain.
