Recipe by Manami

I have been playing around with this type of sandwich for some time and I found "almost the one" from the Food Network Kitchens, Marinating times were not included, they vary from 15-30 minutes up to 4 hours (we did the marinating for 4 hours.)

  3. Add the steak and swish around, turning until evenly coated.
  4. Marinate at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes, or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours, flipping the steak once or twice.
  5. ONIONS:.
  6. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and when shimmering add the onions.
