Officially the Best Arsenal Street Vendor

November 6, 2011

A little while ago I discovered the best street vendor outside the Arsenal. The most delectable treat before some beautiful football. It seems in the latest edition of his magazine, Jamie Oliver has tracked down the same vendor and discovered the recipe… Thanks to regular guest blogger Steve Wallers for the heads up.


• ½ apple, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
• 1 kiwi fruit, peeled and roughly chopped
• 1 pear, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
• 10g garlic (2–3 cloves), roughly chopped
• 2 onions, 1 roughly chopped and 1 chopped
• 100g granulated sugar
• 1 tsp ground white pepper
• 50ml soy sauce
• 50ml sesame oil
• 2 spring onions, chopped
• 75ml ale, such as Marston’s Pedigree
• 25ml lemonade
• 1.2kg featherblade steak, thinly sliced
• 8 x 30cm baguettes
• Teriyaki sauce and mayonnaise, to serve (optional)

1. Purée the fruit, garlic and roughly chopped onion in a blender. Mix the purée with the sugar, pepper, soy and oil, then add the chopped onion, spring onion, ale, lemonade and 25ml water, and massage the marinade into the steak. Transfer to a non-reactive bowl, cover with clingfilm and chill for 24 hours.

2. Cook the beef in a large frying pan over a medium–high heat, stirring occasionally, for 3–5 minutes, depending whether you want it pinkish or well done; there’s no need to add oil. Serve in baguettes, or with rice, with teriyaki sauce and mayo.
