About

Shooter’s Sandwich is a smushed, layered sandwich filled with a variety of ingredients, most commonly including cooked steaks, mushrooms and onions. Photographs of home-cooked variations of the sandwich are often shared on the /r/food subreddit.

Origin

According to The Guardian,[2] the shooter sandwich was originally made during the Edwardian era as a portable beef Wellington that could be prepared a day in advance. On November 13th, 1996, the cooking show Two Fat Ladies demonstrated how to prepare a shooter’s sandwich in Season 1 Episode 6 titled “Food in the Wild.” On April 7th, 2010, The Guardian[2] published an article on how to prepare a shooter’s sandwich, referring to it as “the best sandwich ever.”
