This meal-worthy sandwich uses our American Wagyu NY Strip Slices piled high on dense, hearty bread slathered with garlic and tender vegetables. The base of this meal-worthy sandwich is a delicious bacon jam made with our Kurobuta Bacon. The sweetness of the jam complements the smokiness of the marinated strip steak. This open-faced style of sandwich, also known as Smorrebrod, originated in Denmark and is served in some of the best restaurants internationally. The bread acts as a “plate“ to catch all the delicious juices
