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!

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.

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