Pepito de Ternera is a classic Spanish steak sandwich that originated in Madrid around the 1920s in Café de Fornos in Calle Alcalá. Legend says that the owner’s son tired of eating the same bocadillo, asked for a piece of grilled ternera steak to be served between two slices of crusty bread, his name was Pepito. The rest of clientele amazed by the creation of the boy, started ordering bocadillos like Pepito’s and from there the name was shortened to Pepito de Ternera. This is now one of Madrid and Spain’s most popular bocadillo. This is a more indulgent variation on the classic Pepito de Ternera using grilled wagyu sirloin steak, sherry caramelised onions, truffle mayo and toasted brioche.
