Steak Heaven

I recently I had a hankering for Steak. I truly have these visions a few days before I make them, and luckily my family goes along with the whim. So here's the vision: steak sliced thin on flat bread with a creamy garlic sauce, some simple toppings and look out!!!!! We served ours with baked sweet potatoes and a simple salad.

We also got to enjoy the company of my brother and sister-in-law for a few day and they threw some veggie polish sausages on the grill and topped with the sauce. The did look tempting but the carnivore vision had to be fulfilled.
Too big to bite into like a normal person, check!

Steak Sandwich Dream

2 lbs. good quality grilling Beef, we used top sirloin
1 cup Yoshida's Teriyaki marinade
salt and pepper the meat to the way you like
1 whole onion sliced thick
avocados slices
sliced tomatoes
chopped cilantro
lettuce for topping

Put the steak into a covered bowl or large zip-lock and pour the teriyaki marinade over, we let it set for most of the day but I think 1-2 hours would do. Throw the meat on the grill and cook to a medium temperature, pink in the middle. Also put the onions on the grill until they get nice grill marks on them and are slightly translucent. The flat bread should be put on last and only takes 5 minutes or so to get toasty and warm. After letting the meat rest with a piece of foil on top for 10 minutes you can slice the meat thin. Now put it all together, put your meat on the flat bread, drizzle the garlic sauce on top of meat and top with all the extra fixins' you like. YUM!

My Bro at the grill, He's a Pro

Garlic Fantastic Sauce

8 cloves of fresh garlic peeled- if you just want a hint use 4 cloves
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
 2-4 tablespoons olive oil-start with just 2 first
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper

Here is the tricky part... Drop all the ingredients into a blender or food processor until well mixed! Whoa-la!! If the mixture is too thick add the last one or two tablespoons of olive oil. The texture should be like a thin salad dressing.

I hope this makes your dreams come true because mine sure did! Have fun!
