Some things can never change, like the pleasure of eating a good steak sandwich.There will always be something to beef about.Can it be Improved yes it can. How? - Innovation, improvement, interpretation, adding new flavours and, of course, using only the best quality ingredients, and having a meat mallet to hand, apparently. Small beef or pork steaks in a roll (respectively pregos or bifanas) are popular Portuguese snacks. When menu crise dictates and when time and economy take their toll, a prego or bifana, eaten at a snack bar counter, may constitute the lunch of a white collar worker. When I´m in town, if I can just smell a whiff of a prego in the air I´m off down every back street and alley to find it- that´s how fanatical I am in my search for the best prego in Portugal.These Portuguese steaks flavoured with onions and red wine are called garlic "nailed" steaks because a small meat mallet is typically used to "nail" the garlic slices into the steak. If you like drama, go for it, but I think its more preferable and less of a faff to just push the garlic in with your finger - it doesn't really stay in too well anyway. Regardless, this is an awesome way to enjoy your next steak sandwich. They're quick, satisfying and totally delicious.
