Meat Mixture
1/2 lb (225 grams) Ground Beef
1/2 Cup Chopped Red Onion
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp Curry Powder
1 tsp Chili Powder
Sea Salt, to taste

4 Small Baguette (about 7 inches in length)

Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Meat Mixture: Heat a pan or skillet over high heat and add the peanut oil. Mix in the red onion, cook until soften. Then mix in garlic and cook until the mixture is fragrant and sticky.

Add in the ground beef and continue to fry until the meat is almost cooked. Mix in the curry powder, chill powder, and season with sea salt. Stir-fry the meat mixture until browned and crisp. Remove and set aside. .

Make the sandwich: In a small mixing bowl, combine 2 eggs, 3 tablespoons of beef mixtures, some green chiles, red onion, and some sea salt. Mix well. Then slice a baguette in half but not all the way through. Butter both side of the bread. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat, toast the baguette, butter side down until crisp and golden brown in color. Then lightly coat the pan with vegetable or peanut oil. Pour the eggs and beef mixture, When the egg is almost set, top place the baguette, pressing down lightly with a spatula, and then carefully flip over. Slide the sandwich onto a plate, spread some mayonaise on one side, and child sauce on the other. Then top with some cucumber slices, close the sandwich together and slice into two pieces.

  1. I haven't had this for quite a while because it is too rich. I like yours better, with the cucumber chunks. Takes the guilt away.
