This week we’re back with another great puff pastry recipe, and we’re going savory again. You BBQ enthusiasts are probably familiar with ABTs, the barbecuer’s take on jalapeño poppers.

When our friends at Cattleman’s Grill asked us to come up with a killer steak sandwich recipe it was a no brainer. We use the Cattleman’s Grill rubs more than any other when it comes to grilling steaks around here. This recipe is built around the earthy flavors of their Smoky Chipotle Coffee Steak Rub. The coffee flavor works great with the smoky spice of the chipotle, which we’ve amped up with the steak marinade and the aioli on the sandwich.

Food is vacuum sealed in a bag and submerged in circulating water in which the temperature is precisely controlled.
