This steak, green pepper and blue cheese sandwich is one hearty beast.

For masterful Spanish cooking you can replicate at home, look to chef Katie Button’s new book, named for her Asheville restaurant. Cúrate is packed with 125 recipes from the classic to the modern, tapas and drinks to main courses and desserts, with plenty of surprises in between. Try this steak, green pepper and blue cheese sandwich recipe for lunch, and you’ll see the light.

When I first saw this sandwich in Spain, I immediately thought of Philly cheesesteak. It had steak piled with caramelized peppers and onions and I thought, “I bet blue cheese would be great on that.” Turns out I was right. The savory sharpness of blue cheese tempers the sweetness of caramelized onion and pepper while standing up to hearty steak.
