Recipe

My favorite salad consists of iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, blue cheese and bacon, dusted with freshly ground black pepper. I added grilled beef and now I have it in a panini — perfect!

Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 4 slices sourdough bread (½-inch/1 cm thick slices)
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil 
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) Blue Cheese Mayonnaise (see recipe) 

  • 8 oz (250 g) flank steak, grilled and thinly sliced 
  • ½ cup (125 ml) shredded iceberg lettuce 
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked crisp 
  • 4 thin slices tomato

  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper 

Directions

Preheat panini grill to high.

1. Brush one side of each bread slice with oil. Place on a work surface, oiled side down, and spread with mayonnaise. On bottom halves, evenly layer with steak, lettuce, bacon and tomato. Sprinkle with pepper. Cover with top halves and press gently to pack.

2. Place sandwiches in grill, close the top plate and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately.

Notes

When grilling on the weekend, grill extra meat for weekday panini recipes like this one. Grilled beef makes great leftovers.

Flank steak is a very lean cut of beef that is best prepared using a moist-heat cooking method. However, if you’re grilling or broiling it, marinate it in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours to tenderize it.

    This looks delicious! I found another really good recipe for grilled flank steak on the Wolf Grill website.
