Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 - 10 minutes

Serves: 2


2 Steaks, approximately 250 g each

Olive oil or butter - For cooking steaks

Salt and pepper, to taste

Bread rolls of choice

4 tbsp. Mayonnaise

1 tsp. Dijon mustard, to taste

1 tsp. Honey, to taste

2 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil, to taste

2 drops Young Living Black Pepper essential oil, to taste

2 Ripe medium tomatoes, sliced

Lettuce or rocket leaves


1. Make the sauce by mixing the mayonnaise, mustard, honey, Lemon and Black Pepper essential oils and salt and pepper to taste.

2. Prepare the bread by cutting in half between the top and bottom and toast if desired. Spread the sauce on the pieces of bread and set aside.

3. Lay the tomatoes on the bottom slices of bread and then add lettuce leaves on top.

4. Dry the steaks and generously sprinkle with salt and pepper, then place on a medium frying pan. Sear, grill or BBQ steaks on medium high heat. Let them rest 2-3 minutes before slicing.

5. Slice steaks into pieces and place on top of the lettuce, then add some more lemon & pepper sauce if desired. Place the tops of the bread on, cut in half diagonally and enjoy!

Note: You’ll need approximately 250 g of steak per sandwich, but use less or more as you like.

For a vegetarian option, try grilling slices of 2 medium zucchini or haloumi in place of the steak.

TIP: You can either pan sear, grill or BBQ the steaks until they are cooked to your liking. The secret to making a great pan seared steak is to dry it on all sides with a paper towel, salt and pepper it well, then cook on medium high heat, turning the steak once until done, and resting it for 3 minutes or so.
