Serves 4


½ cup milk

2 brown onions, sliced into rings

2 tbsp plain flour

1 tbsp cornflour

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

½ tsp ground chilli

salt, to season

vegetable oil, for deep-frying onion

4 thin scotch fillet steaks

4 green oak lettuce leaves

2 tomatoes, sliced

125g beetroot slices, drained

100g white costello cheese (or brie) at room temperature

1/3 cup tomato chutney (purchased or homemade)



  1. To make spicy onion rings, preheat oven to 150C. Line a baking tray with paper towel. Put milk in a bowl. Add onion to milk and stand for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl combine plain flour, cornflour, cumin, paprika, garlic and chilli. Season with salt.
  2. Drain onion. Half fill a small saucepan with oil and put on high heat. Dip 6–8 onion rings in flour mixture and add to hot oil. Cook for 1–2 minutes or until golden. Transfer to prepared baking tray. Cook remaining onion. Put tray in oven to keep onion warm.
  3. Put steak on a chopping board and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a char-grill pan on high. When hot, add 2 steaks and cook for 2 minutes. Turn and cook for a further 2 minutes until medium-rare or cooked to your liking.
  4. To assemble sandwiches, top 4 slices of toast with lettuce, tomato, beetroot, steak, 2 slices of cheese each, a dollop of chutney each, onion rings and remaining slices of toast.
  5. Serve immediately.
