- Sauté the leeks with about 2 tablespoons of water (so they don’t stick), in a pan over low heat. Mix until they soften and turn golden.
- Add the sugar, wine and mustard. Stir for about 10 seconds or until the liquid reduces and the leeks dry out (careful not to burn them). When ready, transfer to a bowl and set aside. Clean the pan with some paper towels. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and turn heat to high.
- Add the zucchini and sauté until softened and golden on both sides. Add to bowl with leeks.
- Add another 2 tablespoons of olive oil and add the eggplants. Sauté until softened and golden on both sides. If the eggplants seem too dry, add another tablespoon of olive oil. Don’t add more because eggplants have a tendency to soak up as much oil as you add. When ready, transfer to bowl with all of the vegetables and set aside.
- Add the tomatoes to the same pan. Sauté until softened and golden. Remove and add to the bowl with the vegetables. Keep the vegetables in a warm place.
- Place the steaks in a separate bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Use the same pan or a grill pan to cook steaks over medium to high heat. Cook according to your preference.
- Toast the bread on the grill or on the oven grill. You can drizzle with some olive oil and toast in an 180* C (350* F) Fan preheated oven.
- Assemble the sandwiches by placing a piece of steak, vegetables and lettuce between each ciabatta sandwich loaf and serve!
I suggest you serve with baked potato wedges! Toast the bread on the oven so that it doesn’t get too soggy when it soaks up all the delicious steak juices!
