Ontario Lemongrass Steak on ACE White Baguette

Flavorful marinated sirloin steak and Asian coleslaw made with fresh cilantro combine to make a wonderful shareable sandwich. Featuring our ACE Bakery® White Baguette

Serves: 4


  • 1 ACE Bakery® White Baguette
  • 2 large garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 3 tbsp. fresh minced lemongrass
  • 4 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 red Thai chili, finely minced
  • 16 oz sirloin steak cut 2 inches thick (choose a high-quality steak with lots of marbling)

Spicy Garlic Aioli

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. Sriracha (increase or decrease based on your desire of spiciness)
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together.


  • 3 tbsp. white distilled vinegar
  • 4 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped in 1-inch lengths
  • 1 red Thai chili thinly sliced (increase or decrease based on your desire of spiciness)
  • 3 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 1 cup peeled shredded carrots
  • 1 small Vidalia onion, thinly sliced to make ½ cup


  1. Mix the fish sauce, vinegar, sugar and garlic together until the sugar is dissolved. Combine the remaining ingredients together and mix well. Pour the vinaigrette over the coleslaw mixture and toss.
  2. In a container large enough to hold the steak, mix the garlic, lemongrass, fish sauce, honey and chili. Roll the steak in the marinade and marinate for at least 3 to 4 hours (or overnight) in the refrigerator. Preheat BBQ or grill pan so that it is hot.
  3. Grill the steak to your desired doneness, approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Let the steak rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Cut the baguette into 4 equal portions. Slice the baguette pieces lengthwise, but not all the way through, and grill for about 1 minute until toasted. Slice the steak ⅛ to ¼ inch thick, against the grain.
  5. Spread the Spicy Garlic Aioli on both top and bottom sides of the baguette portions. Layer the sliced steak on and then top with the Asian Coleslaw.
