- 2 tbsps unsalted butter
- 6 oz Brie cheese, cut into 1/2-inch slices
- 2 c arugula

- To ensure your steak is nice and juicy, you must allow it to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into it.

- Add the slices of brie to each half of your toasted croissant and garnish with rocket leaves.
- By this time, your steak should be ready to cut into ½ to 1cm thick slices. Add the steak to the sandwich and arrange the red pepper slices on top with the remaining rocket.
