Beer Battered Tri-tip sandwich

It’s been too long since my last extreme sandwich, so I decided this weekend another one was due. Tri-tip is one of my favorite cuts of steak, and I have been wanting to make steak fingers, so I started there.  I don’t drink beer, but a friend had left one in the back of my fridge, so I used it to make a beer batter, the carbonation gives the breading body and the beer adds a unique flavor.

I also added sauteed bell peppers and mozzarella sticks Normally I would hand make the cheese sticks, but I guess I was feeling lazy.

I put it all on a roasted garlic boule, I looked up boule, and I guess it just means ball in french. I toasted it with a little olive oil and it made a good foundation for the sandwich.

For the sake of your arteries, Limit your intake of this much fried food to very rarely!

The sandwich stood about 7 inches high

I squished down the sandwich to cut out a wedge
