Funkenhausen Chef Mark Steuer’s limited edition sandwich titled “Oma’s Leftovers” draws inspiration from his childhood in Germany. The warm sandwich layers braised grass-fed sirloin in a red wine reduction with Wisconsin farmhouse cheddar cheese and a German-style cucumber salad. Served on Hannah’s bretzel baguettes, the sandwich is complete with a spicy honey mustard on top and red onion marmalade on the bottom. For $11.29, each sandwich comes with a choice of Hannah’s salt & pepper potato chips or tamari roasted almonds.
Steuer’s sandwich will be available until the end of March at all seven Hannah’s Bretzel locations in Chicago’s Loop and River North neighborhoods. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Pilot Light, a Chicago nonprofit connecting chefs and teachers to help kids make healthier choices.
Hannah’s Bretzel’s founder, Florian Pfahler, is originally from Stuttgart, Germany, while Chef Mark Steuer was born in Germany’s Bavarian region.
