The official description for this sandwich is –
"Aberdeen Angus beef, red onion chutney & mustard on soft white farmhouse bread"An interesting and bold recipe choice from this premier Marks & Spencer sandwich. What I will firstly say is that quality of the ingredients is very high, which instantly makes for an enjoyable sandwich experience, and really makes you feel like you are eating quality.
I was unsure, if I am honest, about how the combination of red onion chutney – which is traditionally quite sweet – and mustard would play out as a backdrop for Aberdeen Angus beef. I would have expected a sweet onion chutney to be paired with something like a strong, tangy cheese, perhaps. Mustard was an unusual choice.
It worked better than I expected it would, as an overall recipe. But I don't feel it really grabbed me. It was fine – but it didn't sparkle. I think the jury's still out on this recipe, so I would buy this sandwich again to give it another chance, but unless I become a late convert to the idea I think maybe red onion chutney and mustard in one sandwich is possibly an innovative combination too far for Marks & Spencer.
