Often considered a street food in the Cape Town area of South Africa, The Gatsby is an impressive sandwich featuring meat, French fries and iceberg lettuce. This version features tikka masala veal, roasted red peppers and fiery Piri Piri sauce.
1 tbsp (15 mL) extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp (45 mL) flour
3/4 lb (350 g) Ontario veal leg steaks
salt and pepper
3/4 cup (180 mL) prepared tikka masala sauce
4 8-inch crusty Italian rolls, toasted
1/2 cup (125 mL) mayonnaise, divided
2 roasted red peppers, sliced
8 cups cooked french fries
2 cups (500 mL) shredded iceberg lettuce
Piri Piri Sauce (optional), to taste
Heat a large non-stick skillet with oil over high heat. Lightly flour each veal leg steak, season with salt and pepper. Add the veal in batches and sear on both sides until just cooked, about 2 minutes total. Set cooked meat aside on a clean plate. When all the meat is seared, reduce the heat to medium. Add the tikka masala sauce and any juices from the veal. Add the veal and cook until heated through.
Spread the bottom roll with mayonnaise. Top the mayonnaise with masala veal, roasted red peppers, french fries and shredded iceberg lettuce. If using, drizzle with Piri Piri Sauce. Top with remaining bun half and serve.
