Treat yourself to these mouth watering Steak Sandwiches with Caramelised Fennel. If you don't have fennel on hand, you can use two large red onions instead!


  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium fennel bulbs (600g), sliced thinly
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 x 200g scotch fillet steaks
  • 8 slices Helga’s Traditional Wholemeal Bread
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 60g baby rocket leaves
  • 2 vine-ripened tomatoes (180g), sliced


  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook fennel and garlic, stirring, for 8 minutes or until soft and slightly caramelised. Season.
  2. Meanwhile, cut each steak horizontally to make 4 thin steaks. Season. Cook beef on a heated oiled grill plate or barbecue over high heat for 1 minute each side or until cooked to your liking. Remove from heat; rest, covered, for 5 minutes.
  3. Toast bread until golden. Combine mustard, lemon juice and remaining oil in a small bowl; season to taste.
  4. Top 4 toast slices with rocket, tomato, steak and fennel. Drizzle with the mustard dressing; sandwich with remaining toast slices.

Swap: Use 2 large red onions (600g) instead of the fennel.
