A Sandwich for Jenny: Brie, Roasted Pepper & Steak

Last week, my good friend Jenny came to town from NYC. The only time we had to see each other was Saturday night. Jenny is one of those super easy going people and was up for whatever. I suggested we should just hang out and have dinner at my apartment. She was fine with that plan.

When I asked Jenny what she wanted to have for dinner, she said it did not matter, she was easy :) Of course that wasn't super helpful. Then Jenny decided that she wanted babaganoush (an eggplant spread): I could do that! I thought it'd be fun to have dinner of a few dips, a sandwich and a super special dessert (can't reveal it till February 28th!).

For dips I made hummus and babaganoush. I also pan roasted asparagus and bought white wine. The star of the dinner, however was the Brie, Roasted Pepper & Steak Sandwich.

Ingredients and Directions
1. Slice a French baguette lengthwise and toast. Top the bread with pieces of brie and roasted red pepper.



2. Top the pepper with watercress and thinly sliced steak. Top with the other half of the French baguette.



If I say so myself, the sandwich was fabulous! I like the crunchiness of the bread paired with the buttery texture of brie. The juices from the pink steak mix in with the slightly bitter flavor of the watercress, and the red roasted pepper not only provides a bit of sweetness, but also a pretty color.
