Saturday Sandwich 89: Cemita Poblana

This week it's the turn of the Cemita Poblana, a Mexican sandwich from Puebla.

Ingredients: thin-cut steak, breadcrumbs, avocado, onion, salsa, cheese and a bread roll.

Cover your steak with flour, then egg then breadcrumbs and shallow fry it in a pan.


While it cooks through, slice up some onion and avocado.


Toast your bread rolls ready for filling them. We put half of the steak in each bread bun and topped it with cheese, onion, avocado and then finally a good dollop of salsa.



It was a nice sandwich. The steak was thin and tender enough to bite into in the bread roll. The cheese melted onto the steak and the breadcrumbs gave a nice texture to the steak. I'm not keen on avocado usually but you couldn't taste it over the salsa, it just leant a smoothness to the other crunchy or solid ingredients. It wasn't un-delicious in taste but it felt lacking in something to make it a really good sandwich.
