A Grass-Fed Steak Sandwich on Protein Pancake ‘Bread’

A Grass-Fed Steak Sandwich on Protein Pancake 'Bread'

I was really craving a steak sandwich when I got back from the gym this morning but waaaa, I was out of bread! So I did what I recommend you do too next time you find yourself craving a sandwich but have no bread around: make some savory (protein) pancakes and use them as instead of bread. They’re a delicious substitute. Below you’ll find a recipe for these pancakes but, hey, you can use any recipe you want to make them (here are a few others). And you can flavor your ‘pancake breads’ however you want too. Here I used thyme. You can also use dried parsley, dried oregano, rosemary, basil, etc. too. And you can fill your ‘pancake bread sanwiches’ with all kinds of yummy fillings: like veggies, hummus, chicken, bacon, salmon or, like I did, some delicious Irish grass-fed fillet steak. The steak I used here I got from Muscle Food UK. It’s this one. It’s crazy. And I’m not saying that because I know the Muscle Food team, I’m saying it because I’m a massive steak lover and these ones are insane. Please don’t take my word though. If you’re into steak, try them out and you’ll see! Zeus, they’re absolutely delicious…

1/2 – 3/4 cup of rolled oats (depending on how ‘oaty’ you want your pancakes)
1/4 cup of unflavored whey protein powder (I used this one by the Organic Protein Co which amounted to 22g)
2 tbsp pea protein powder (you can sub with Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 10.32.53ground almonds if you don’t have pea protein around)
1/4 cup of liquid egg whites
1/8 cup of almond milk
1-2 tbsp cottage cheese (depending on how soft you want them)

1. Blend everything together.

2. Fry up as 4-6 patties (depending on how small you want them) on a nonstick pan with a tsp of coconut oil added to it to ensure they definitely don’t stick.

3. For the filling, I just pan-fried some Muscle Food grass-fed fillet steak (seriously guys, go order some) on a bit of coconut oil, sliced it, cut up an avocado, sliced some tomatoes, and BAM! I was greeted by a steak sandwich party.

Macros per 2 patties (out of six): 127kcals, 15g protein, 11g carbs (out of which 2g is fiber) and 2g fat.
