FRANCESINHA (SUPER INDULGENT PORTUGUESE SANDWICH)



Francesinha (Super Indulgent Portuguese Sandwich) image

This looks very yummy but certainly not one for the diet! Apparently, it is the Portuguese take on the French croque-monsieur.

FRANCESINHA



Francesinha image

Like a Portuguese version of a Croque Monsieur, only with far more meat and a tomatoey, beery sauce which you can spice up with some chilli, if preferred. Belly busting and described as a 'heart attack on a plate', this is a food that is local to Porto and made in a few different ways. I had it at the St Johns Festival and it was amazing and is a local speciality in Porto.

Time 50m

Yield Serves 2

Number Of Ingredients 27

2 fresh sausages
2 fresh smoked sausages
2 thin steaks
4 slices bread (stale is perfect)
10 slices any preferred melty cheese
4 slices ham or preferred salami
2 eggs
2 fresh sausages
2 fresh smoked sausages
2 thin steaks
4 slices bread (stale is perfect)
10 slices any preferred melty cheese
4 slices ham or preferred salami
2 eggs
2 chopped onions 2 bay leaves Some pork fat or bacon 500 ml tomato passata 1 fresh chilli or chilli flakes 1x 330 ml bottles beer - your preference 175 ml white wine (optional) splash brandy (option
4 crushed cloves garlic
2 oz butter
2 Tbsps OO
2 bay leaves
Some pork fat or bacon
500 ml tomato passata
1 fresh chilli or chilli flakes
1x 330 ml bottles beer - your preference
175 ml white wine (optional)
Splash brandy and port (optional)
500 ml beef or chicken stock
milk and flour for thickening

Steps:

  • Sandwich filling: Cut the sausages lengthwise and season with salt and pepper. Season the steaks as well. Grill the sausages first and then the steaks so they stay medium rare.
  • Meanwhile, make the sauce: Chop the onions and the garlic and let them sizzle on the pan with some butter, olive oil, the bay leaves, and bacon. Add the tomato passata and the chillies and bring to a fast simmer. Add the booze if you're using any and the stock, and simmer for 10-20 minutes. Mix the milk and flour with a fork and add it to the sauce to thicken it. Remove the bay leaves and blend with a stick blender until the sauce is smooth.
  • Start shaping the francesinha: first a slice of bread, then one slice of cheese, one of ham/salami, the steak, the sausages; layering between the two sandwiches until the meat is used up between them and you have a sandwich. Cover all of the sandwiches with the remaining sliced cheese and bung in the oven or grill until it melts.
  • Once the cheese is melted, fry the eggs and top the sandwiches with them and pour the hot sauce over and around. Serve with fries.

From goodfood.com.au
  • 1. For the Francesinha sauce, heat the butter in a medium-sized saucepan over high heat and add the beef trimmings or chicken bones and fry until well browned. Add the carrot, onion and salt and cook, stirring regularly, for five minutes until the vegetables are caramelised and fragrant. Stir through the tomato paste and cook a further minute, then add the bay leaf, port, beer and milk, and bring to a simmer. (If using chilli powder, add it at this stage.) Simmer for 30 minutes, then stir through the cornflour and piri-piri (if using) until the sauce is thickened. The sauce should be the consistency of thin gravy. Strain the sauce to remove any solids, adjust for seasoning and keep hot until ready to serve.
  • 2. For the sandwich, toast the bread and butter it lightly. Fill the sandwich with the smallgoods and cooked meats and top with another slice of bread. Lie the cheese slices over the top slice of bread so they overhang the sides of the sandwich. Grill the sandwich so the melted cheese wraps the bread.
  • 3. To serve, top the sandwich with a fried egg and place it in a deep dish. Pour over the hot Francesinha sauce or serve in a small jug to add as desired, with french fries and a cold beer alongside.
