DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the onion slices in a strainer under cold running water.
  • Pat dry; place in a bowl.
  • Cover with the red wine vinegar.
  • Set aside for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  • Pound the garlic with salt, using a mortar and pestle, to make a paste.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of the lime juice and incorporate it into the garlic.
  • Slowly add the olive oil, stirring with the pestle to incorporate it.
  • (If you don't have a mortar and pestle, this can be done in a food processor.) Spoon the garlic mixture over the steak, spreading it with the back of a spoon.
  • Season with salt.
  • Turn the meat over and do the same with the other side.
  • Combine the mayonnaise, pureed chipotle and sauce and remaining 1 tablespoon of the lime juice in another small bowl.
  • Grill or fry the beef over high heat, 3 minutes.
  • Turn; cook to medium rare, 1-2 minutes.
  • Set aside.
  • Cut the rolls in half; spread each half with 1 tablespoon of the chipotle mayonnaise.
  • Arrange the avocado slices on the top half of the roll; top with a few onion rings.
  • Cut the meat into pieces roughly the size of the bread; arrange on the onion rings.
  • Add the bottom half of the roll; press gently to compact everything together.
