To make Gordon Ramsay's steak sandwich recipe, you will need:

  • Fillet of beef, 700 grams
  • Head of garlic, cut in half horizontally
  • Thyme
  • Butter
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt and pepper, for seasoning

1. To make his steak sandwich, Gordon Ramsay begins preheating his oven to 200°C/Gas 6. At the same time, he heats an ovenproof frying pan, adding a good glug of olive oil once warm.

2. Next, he seasons his fillet with plenty of salt and pepper, before frying on a high heat for a minute or two on both sides until it's coloured on both sides, before removing from the pan. 

3. Gordon Ramsay then adds garlic and thyme to the pan, cooking for a few minutes before placing his meat on top. He also adds a good amount of butter to the pan and bastes his meat for extra flavour.

4. Once that's done, Gordon Ramsay places his beef in the oven – keeping it in his ovenproof frying pan – and roasts for 15 to 17 minutes. He then removes the meat from the oven, covers in foil and leaves to rest for another 15 minutes, continuing to baste with the butter every few minutes.

5. You can serve the meat at this stage, or you can make a tasty relish to accompany your salad. Gordon Ramsay does so by gently caramelising an onion and chillies, before stirring in fresh tomatoes and allowing to slow cook for 6 to 8 minutes. He then adds vinegar and allows the relish to simmer so that it achieves a thicker consistency. Once removed from the heat, he adds a small amount of basil and seasons well with salt and pepper.

6. Gordon Ramsay then thickly slices his steak and serves with toasted ciabatta, lemon mayonnaise, lettuce leaves and plenty of relish.
