First step, let’s caramelize the onions

1. Heat 2-3 Tbs of oil in pan, add sliced onions. Add a sprinkle of salt to the onions while sautéing. When onions are almost ready add one garlic cube and 2 tsp of sugar.

Next, let’s make the crispy chicken

1. Dredge the cutlets first into the egg, then the crumbs. Place on a greased baking pan and spray the top of the chicken well with oil spray. Bake on 375 F for 20-25 minutes.
2. While the chicken is getting crispy, time to grill the corned beef and pastrami:
3. Heat a grill pan. While it’s heating up, mix the brown sugar, oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. It should be a pasty consistency. When the pan is hot, lay the pastrami and corned beef down in a single layer. It will take a couple of rounds to finish grilling all the meat. After one minute, turn the meat over. Working quickly, smear the brown sugar mixture over the pieces of meat (only on the top layer that’s already grilled). The sugar will quickly melt. After a minute take the meat off the pan, continue in the same way with the rest of the pieces of pastrami and corned beef.


1. To prepare the dressing, just mix up all the ingredients together.

Time to prepare the sandwich!

1. Smear the dressing on both sides of the sliced Italian or club bread. Place lots of caramelized onions onto the bread. Next, add lettuce and tomatoes. Place some slices of the crispy pastrami and corned beef on top of the lettuce. Slice up the crispy cutlets into strips and add to your sandwich. Add more lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. Drizzle some more dressing.
2. Your sandwich is ready, but for an extra delicious crunchy sandwich heat your grill pan again. If you have a Fleishig panini maker that works too. Grill the sandwich till golden grill marks appear on bread.
