Mexican Style Steak Sandwich - The Foodie Affair

This Mexican Style Steak Sandwich (Torta) is simple and packed with a punch of flavor! Just the meal to have ready for my sports fanatics as we roll into the big basketball tournaments!

What I like about this recipe is that the marinade is made from a base of RO*TEL diced tomatoes, which is super convenient since RO*TEL offers flavors that enhance a Mexican dish. I used the diced tomatoes Mexican blend of lime, jalapeño peppers with cilantro and put it right in the marinade. The combination adds a delicious flavor to the steak with just the right amount of spice!

Steak is filling and when sliced for sandwiches, and it can go a long way if you’re feeding a crowd! I know, pizza usually comes to mind when you have several bellies to satisfy because it’s quick to order or make if you use an Easy No rise Whole Wheat Pizza Dough recipe, but that meal is predictable!

These steak sandwiches are just as easy to make and if you are in warm weather break out the grill! Grill not prepped for the season like mine? Broil the meat for a quick sear like I did here. Two minutes on one side and three minutes on the other. Let it rest for a couple of minutes and then slice it up!

I recommend toasting the sandwich rolls before assembling the sandwich. The crusty layer gives the steak a thin barrier so that the juice from the meat doesn’t soak through the bread too quickly.

RO*TEL brand has a variety of diced tomatoes, including a mild flavor if you can’t handle the heat in your foods, but I think you’ll be pleased with the flavor of  RO*TEL Mexican Lime & Cilantro Diced Tomatoes.

    This is the kind of sandwich my husband and I would love! You know, I buy Rotel all the time, but I’ve only ever used in dips and things like that. Never thought about this kind of use. Thanks!

    Great idea to marinade the meat in the Rotel tomatoes! My boys would love your sammies. I would love your marinaded skirt steak over a salad. You know what I find so amusing about this post is looking at the size of supermarkets back in the States. Wow, look at the size of the isles and the selection of food… so very different here in HK. I think I might be overwhelmed by the selection of items when I ever move back home. Sharing, of course!
