The lomito or tenderloin sandwichis a typical classic sandwich from Argentina. Which consists of a rectangular and thin bread, also known as sandwich bread. To assemble these sandwiches, the bread is cut in half and spread with some dressing (mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, etc.).

Inside, it is usually made up of a beef steak (loin), fried egg, cooked ham feta, cheese (mozzarella, tybo, creamy), tomato and lettuce. Although there are varieties of sandwiches with other special ingredients. Such as bacon, caramelized onions, special sauces, avocado, sautéed vegetables, etc.

Commonly, this sandwich is toasted to prevent the ingredients from moistening the bread and falling apart when eaten. In this way, the bread remains crispy, does not fall apart too much and makes it more comfortable during consumption. It can be toasted before or after depending on the preference or custom of the person who prepares it.

Let’s talk about the recipe:

These lomito breads are very simple to prepare. It is a recipe that does not have great complications regarding its elaboration. The ingredients to be used are few, frequently and easy to find in any market. It turns out to be a malleable and docile dough, which should not present any type of complication during its preparation.

About the ingredients:

At Integralisimo, the whole wheat flour used is 100% whole grain, fine ground (I don’t use mixes unless I mention it). In general, depending on its brand, it can absorb more or less amount of liquid. So I recommend incorporating them gradually. Keep in mind that the lower the volume is, smaller final product you will get.

This is a recipe in which you can use milk, non-dairy milk or just water. Similarly, you have the option of using a mixture of them, that is, half and half. Although using just water will make this whole wheat dough a bit more rustic. On the other hand, if you use animal or vegetable milk, it gives the dough a certain softness.

The fat used in this opportunity is sunflower oil. But it can be replaced with margarine, butter, coconut oil, etc. As a result, depending on what fat is used, its texture can change. Therefore, always keep in mind the type of ingredient that is used to make a specific recipe.

About the shape of the buns:

For a better result, let the dough rise when finished. Then divide the dough into equal parts, roll it into a ball and let it rest for a few minutes before giving it its final shape. With the proportions of this recipe, you get half a dozen standard size lomito bread, using approximately 150-160 grams of dough for each one.

About Cooking:

Before baking this lomito bread with whole wheat flour, you can brush it with golden (mixture of egg and milk). Also, sprinkle with sesame seeds. Baking takes a few minutes and it is recommended not to overcook. This prevents the bread from drying out or toasting too much. As soon as they brown, remove the tray from the oven.
