Kiwi Steak and Onion Sandwich
Serves 4 Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 45 minutes


  • 3 large onions, sliced
  • ¼ cup Cottee's Maple Flavoured Syrup
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 4x 125 g trimmed, about 1cm thickness
  • 1 ciabatta loaf, cut into 4 pieces
  • ½ cup Eta Kiwi-style Onion Mayonnaise
  • mesclun salad leaves
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced


Caramelised Onions

1. Heat a dash of oil in a saucepan. Add the onions. Cover and cook over a medium heat until they begin to soften. Remove the lid and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes until the onions start to change colour. Add Cottee’s Maple Flavoured Syrup and balsamic vinegar. Stir. Continue to cook over a medium heat uncovered for a further 30-35 minutes, until the onions are soft and caramelised, and the liquid is absorbed. Set aside.

Steak Sandwich

1. BBQ or quickly pan fry the sirloin steaks over a high heat until just cooked, turning once during cooking. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

2. Cut ciabatta pieces in half. Spread the tops and the bottoms of the bread with Eta Kiwi-style Onion Mayonnaise.

3. Top half the bread with mesclun leaves, tomato slices, steak and caramelised onions. Cover with the remaining bread pieces.
