There’s just something so intoxicating about street food, from Filippo’s hot dogs in Altamira or food truck hamburgers in Las Mercedes and La Trinidad —all in my beautiful Caracas, where I was born and raised—, to the greasy soul food of Pepito’s Plaza in our current city of Doral.
Literally speaking, this special kind of fast food makes you want more and then lick your fingers when you’re done. That’s when remorse hits, and you wonder why you can’t eat street food at home.
So, I made this recipe for sautéed beef strips sandwich with onion and red bell pepper. It takes no time at all to make it, it’s guilt-free, and delicious. The best part, however, is the bread: quite literally called Foldit, this type of artisanal bread from Flatout makes for an absolutely scrumptious sandwich that’s easy to stuff and eat.
I love Foldit because it has 53% less carbs than regular bread, with each one being approximately 90 calories. It also has 7 grams of protein, perfect for my 14 year old athlete son, who’s obsessed with food labels and is hyper-aware of what he puts in his body. To top it off, they’re an excellent source of fiver and omega-3 due to the 5 kinds of flax grains it has.
To make this sandwich, I used Flatout Foldit Artisan Breads 5 Grain Flax, and grilled the bread on the same surface as the beef strips.
In Florida, Flatout breads can be bought at Publix, Winn Dixie, and Walmart. It can also be bought on Amazon. Click here to see where to see if it’s available at your local supermarket.
These breads are super practical and keep their taste even after spending time in the fridge.
I hope you enjoy my recipe.
