From Our Chef
“This dish is a healthy way for meat-lovers to enjoy a beef sandwich without spiking their cholesterol. Technically not a steak at all, this is a popular cut of beef that comes from the cow's belly muscles. The meat is flavorful, but very lean and contains almost zero fat. Made with a mix of spice that brings a nice heat to the sandwich, the taste is balanced with the sweetness of jam and bell peppers.” –Julien Ardouin, Canyon Ranch Chef, Lenox.
