These are a very special addition to a fancy picnic or luncheon on the patio.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12-2 lbs flank steaks
  • 2 teaspoons cooking oil (canola)
  • 1 cup Italian dressing (Bernstein's Restaurant Style is best)
  • 1 cup sour cream (not fat free or non-dairy type)
  • 1 can artichoke hearts (water-packed) or 1 can artichoke bottom (water-packed)
  • 4 large butter croissants

Directions

  1. Begin at least 4 hours in advance or, preferably, the night before. Trim fat from flank steak and cut into strips approximately 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long.
  2. In hot oil, brown the steak strips over medium high heat until they are cooked through and brown.
  3. Don't overcook or steak will be tough.
  4. Drain off any excess fat. Put steak strips in a 1-quart bowl and pour over the well-blended Italian dressing.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 3-1/2 hours or overnight. Open artichokes and drain off all liquid.
  6. Cut artichoke bottoms in fourths, articho ke hearts in half.
  7. If steak has not absorbed all of the Italian dressing, drain off any excess.
  8. Combine sour cream, artichokes, steak and mix thoroughly.
  9. This mixture will keep for some time if you want to refrigerate it until you are ready to assemble sandwiches.
  10. When ready to serve, carefully slice open the croissants and pile 1/4 of the steak/artichoke mixture inside each croissant. I have served these sandwiches with a light salad of mixed greens, mandarin orange segments and slivered red onion.

What a fabulous recipe! I once knew a very famous Irish baker who loved to make something similar. The marinade makes it absolutely mouth-watering, and the flank steak is tender. But the addition of sour cream at the end is genius! It pulls all the flavors together.
