Steak Sandwich with Jalapeno Pesto

So as promised, here's the recipe for the steak sandwich. Yum. This was really good. This is a copy cat recipe of the sandwich we saw on Diners Drive-ins and Dives one day and Rob begged me daily until I made it. We didn't get to try to the original recipe, but we loved this! I guess I'm on a bit of a sandwich kick lately
You can definitely play with this recipe a bit. The other day I just mixed some leftover jalapeno pesto with some mayo and put it on a turkey burger and it was super yummy too.

Steak Sandwich with Jalapeno Pesto

  • 1-1 1/2 lb flank steak
  • 1 packet Montreal Steak marinade mix (super gourmet)
  • 4 slices provolone
  • 1/2 cup jalapeno pesto
  • 1 jar roasted red peppers (or roast your own easily)
  • 4 fresh bakery rolls

The morning of: mix up your marinade and toss the steak and marinade into a ziploc and marinate in the fridge for the day.

Prepare your jalapeno pesto. Grill the steak to the doneness of your liking. (We like medium rare). Important: let the cooked meat rest at least 10 minutes before slicing or all of thejuice will run out of it and the steak will be dry!! While the meat is resting toast the buns in the oven. Slice the steak against the grain and lay out the steak on the bottom bun, top with provolone, roasted red pepper, and 2 Tb pesto. Enjoy! These sammies would be great with some oven fries.
