Uruguay - Chivito al Pan

Here is the last recipe for the 2010 FIFA World Cup Menu - Week 4. Uruguay is the last remaining South American team in the World Cup so it is quite fitting that it is the last recipe! However, I am going to do 2 additional recipes for the 2 countries in the final game. Check back on Thursday July 8th for those.

This recipe is said to be a favorite with locals and tourists alike. It's so incredibly simple and basic that I was hesitant to use it to represent Uruguay. But Yummy is as Yummy does so here you go!

Uruguay - Chivito al Pan
Serves 4

  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1 lb 1/4 inch thick steak, boneless
  • 4 slices carved ham or ham steaks (not deli meat but cut from a nice piece of ham is better)
  • 4 slices mozzarella
  • 4 crusty sandwich rolls
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • lettuce
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 4 fried or boiled eggs (optional)

  1. Heat a pan over medium high heat, add the butter and melt
  2. Cook the steak in the pan when you flip the steak, top with the ham and mozzarella
  3. Cook until the mozzarella is melted
  4. Mix the mayo and ketchup together and spread on the 4 rolls
  5. Slice the boiled egg if using
  6. Top each roll with the steak, ham, mozza, lettuce, tomato and egg.
