Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Cut the loaf of bread lengthwise and put in a warm place.
  2. Cook the beef in a hot frying pan with a little oil.
  3. Season beef with salt and pepper.
  4. Fry the egg alongside the beef or in another frying pan. The yolk should be well cooked (not runny).
  5. Spread a little mayo on both sides of cut bread. Top with the beef, the fried egg, a couple of lettuce leaves, and the tomato slices.
  6. Top with ketchup or mustard to taste.
  7. Cover with the other half of the bread loaf. Serve hot.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Chivito Canadiense: This is a variation which adds a couple of slice of a cold cut called "Lomito Canadiense" which is a cured pork sirloin which might be on the sweetish side if cured with honey. A couple of slices are heated in the frying pan together with the beef and egg and towered before adding the lettuce and tomato.
  • "Chivito Al Plato" includes all the above ingredients except for the bread. Everything is piled on a plate and eaten with a knife and fork instead as sandwiched in a bread loaf. Some add a few pickled vegetables (cucumber, carrot, etc).
