Adorned steak on a sandwich makes an elegant statement.
INGREDIENTS:1-1/2 lb sirloin or strip loin steak
Pat dry steak. On a cutting board, cut steak crosswise in 1/8-inch thick slices. Lay flat and cover with plastic wrap. Pound slices to 1/16-inch thick. Set aside. In a large bowl, place oils and balsamic. Add meat and toss to coat evenly, pressing mixture into meat. In large cast iron pan heat 4 tbsp olive oil on medium (300 degrees). Add half of the sirloin, season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring to break up the meat, until golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Repeat with rest of meat and set aside total batch. Heat oven to 375 degrees. On a baking sheet place bread. Drizzle with olive oil. Place in oven for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from oven. Place meat in thin layers on bottom slice. If using cheese, place single layer on beef now. Then place under broiler for one minute. Repeat with rest of meat and cheese. Remove and add caramelized onions, then serve immediately. If using Chimichurri sauce spread generously but evenly on beef. Then, add generous layer of caramelized onions. Cover with slice of toasted bread. Serve with Black Mission Fig balsamic and fresh extra virgin olive oil on the side for dipping.
