For all you steak and hot pepper lovers! Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens.
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (leave seeds in or take them out for less heat)
- 1⁄3 cup olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup fresh lime juice
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt (or use regular salt)
- 1 1⁄4-1 1⁄2 lbs beef flank steak
- 12 slices Texas toast thick bread, toasted (or other thick-cut white bread)
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chipotle chile in adobo, minced (or 1 tsp. chile powder)
- 1 red onion, quartered and thinly sliced
- 4 ounces queso fresco, crumbled (or farmer cheese)
- fresh cilantro stem (or parsley)
- lime wedge
- For marinade:.
- In a bowl whisk together garlic, jalapeno peppers, olive oil, lime juice, mustard, and salt.
- Trim fat from meat. With a knife score meat on both sides at 1-inch intervals in diamond pattern. Place meat in a zip-lock plastic bag placed in a shallow dish. Pour marinade over meat; seal bag. Marinate in refrigerator for 4-24 hours.
- Heat a nonstick or well-seasoned grill pan on stovetop over medium heat. Drain meat; discard marinade. Place meat in hot pan. Cook for 14-16 minutes or until steak is medium, turning once halfway through grilling. Carve steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
- In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise with chipotle(or chile powder).
- Meanwhile, spread one side of each toast slice with mayonnaise mixture. Place steak, onions, cheese, and cilantro on half the toast slices. Top with remaining slices. Serve with lime wedges.
Tasty sandwich. I used chipotle sauce to mix with the mayo and a nice crispy ciabatta bread. The cilantro and squeeze of lime make this sandwich special.
MMMm...yummy! These were great. I used thick sliced french bread sprayed with cooking spray and put under the broiler to get toasty. I used the chipotle chilies with the mayonnaise instead of the chili powder. The mayo mix was yummy! I really liked it. The cilantro was a nice fresh brightness to the sandwich, and the meat itself was perfectly seasoned. It was a great marinade. Overall it wasn't really that spicy, which I thought it might be, but it was still sooo good. I will be making this again! Made for Photo Tag.
