People don’t live on pizza and pasta alone. Neapolitan cuisine, a paradise for lovers of good food and getting their hands a little dirty. The weekend always lends itself to leaving formalities and refined or very light recipes aside, to enjoy a little more comfortably with something tasty with which lick our fingers. And it doesn’t have to be the maximum gochism either.
Eating sandwiches every day may not be the best option, but a sandwich can be a well-balanced meal and also succulent and appetizing, to treat yourself occasionally and without having to invest a lot of time in its preparation. The fabulous cistecca montese knocks at our door on Fridays.
Typical dish of street food Italian, very popular throughout the Campania region but especially in the streets of Naples, consists of a generous sandwich of elongated bread filled with beef, vegetables and plenty of cheese. The variations are multiple and to everyone’s taste, although we love the combination of ingredients with eggplant.
In just 25 minutes you can have your cistecca ready to be devoured, since the meat, being thin fillets, is cooked in a flash also thanks to cutting it into strips. All you have to do is sauté the vegetables well, sauté the beefcombine everything by placing the cheese on top so that it melts, and assemble the sandwich with a base of lettuce or other green leaves.
If we toast the bread or sear it in the same pan, collecting all the substance left by cooking, it will be even better. The smoky touch of the scamorza and that melting texture of provolone They put the cherry on top of a sublime bite.
