    Alright, we went off on a day of bushwalking yesterday and I wanted to make something appropriate and tasty to take along with us and had seen this delicious looking sandwich elsewhere on the net and wanted to give it a go myself.

    In hindsight, it’s a little like an easy Beef Wellington or a terrine that travels well. Anyhow here are the pics, I won’t put a full recipe as it’s all pretty self-explanatory.

    Arrange all ingredients in an aesthetically pleasing manner, included here is a cob loaf, mushrooms, an onion, horseradish, seeded mustard and 2 rump steaks. Not shown here is garlic and some ham. by sc0n, on Flickr


    [​IMG]
    Fry up onion, garlic, mushrooms and ham, get the mushrooms nice and dark and then set aside. by sc0n, on Flickr


    [​IMG]
    Hollow out the inside of the cob loaf and set aside the insides for breadcrumbs. by sc0n, on Flickr

    Layer 2 – mushroom duxelle. by sc0n, on Flickr


    [​IMG]
    Layer 3 – second steak layer. by sc0n, on Flickr


    [​IMG]
    Layer 4 – horseradish on the meat and mustard on the lid. by sc0n, on Flickr


    [​IMG]
    Now wrap the whole lot in baking paper and bind with string. by sc0n, on Flickr


    [​IMG]
    Carefully choose a cooking book and attractive kitchen gadget to weigh down the sandwich, this needs to be done for at least 6 hours, I put it in the fridge overnight. by sc0n, on Flickr

    And this is what it looked like served with some tomato chutney. by sc0n, on Flickr​


    It was delicious, great thing to take on a day hike as it packs a hell of a lot of calories into a small package. In all, this could have easily fed four people for lunch on the trail and is a lot more interesting to eat than trail mix. Best of all it's super easy, if you can cook a steak and fry up some mushrooms, you can make this. Give it a go.

    Wow! The 10th picture down made me dribble. I wasn't expecting it to look like that. The layers of meat look so succulent to bite into. I've got to try making one of these myself, maybe make one for lunch in a couple of days. ;)

    Really great looking sandwich. :thumbup:

    Your photography is great too; I find photographing food terribly difficult.

    Gruehunter, that's where I got the idea from - actually, looking through the pictures it's painfully obvious!

    Everyone else, if you can cook a steak, this is easy, will win you carnivorous friends too!

    Can you replace the mushroom layer with another steak?

    Oh my. Wow. Oh man, I've got to try that.

    Almost limitless variations spring to mind too.

    Just baked my first loaf in mah new breadmaker yesterday... I think I know what the second load will be used for now... :D:thumbup:

    Great sandwich. Must make and eat.

    Also, I do believe some chicken schnitzel would be a wonderful alternative to beef.
