When we spent the day with Chefs

Kevin Fink

and

Tavel Bristol-Joseph

—two of the co-owners and partners behind Austin’s Emmer & Rye (a Bon Appetit Best New Restaurant in 2016)—we learned a ton about their approach to

open fire cooking

at

Hestia

, their latest collaborative culinary project inspired by hearth cooking. Most importantly, however, we realized that we’re not cooking over fire enough.

Below, get Chef Fink’s recipe for a simple herby charred steak sandwich that’s brightened with lime and grilled Anaheim peppers. For dessert, follow up with Chef Bristol-Joseph’s recipe for salted peanut butter and banana s’mores.

This isn’t a recipe you can replicate on a stovetop, so build up a fire, heat up your

Carbon Steel Grill Frying Pan

, and get cooking.

Ingredients

4

Anaheim chiles

1

red onion

1

(16-ounce) ribeye steak, preferably Wagyu, tempered

4

small baguettes

4

tablespoons mayonnaise

1

(8-ounce) ball queso Oaxaca, sliced

½

cup fresh herbs such as mint, basil, tarragon, or parsley

1

lime

Arugula or crunchy lettuce, for serving

Instructions

STEP 1

Preheat a

Grill Frying Pan

over the fire for 2 minutes. Cook Anaheim chilies until blistered and charred, then remove from heat and allow to cool. Slice peppers lengthwise, removing charred skin if desired.

STEP 2

Slice red onion into rings, cook until softened and charred, and set aside.

STEP 3

Liberally season steak with salt and pepper and sear evenly on each side, around 3-4 minutes, depending on the thickness of your steak. Remove steak from the heat and let it rest while you prepare the sandwiches.

STEP 4

Slice your baguettes lengthwise

almost

all the way through, leaving one long side attached. Open baguettes and toast, face down.

STEP 5

Spread a layer of mayonnaise on each baguette, then layer in thin slices of steak, chilies, and red onions.

STEP 6

Cook queso Oaxaca slices just until they start to melt. Top your sandwiches with the cheese, arugula, fresh herbs, and squeeze of lime.
