Separate parts of recipe can be made ahead of time and the sandwich assembled quickly for a weeknight meal. This fork and knife sandwich works very well with leftover fajita meat and peppers, or as a way to use leftover grilled steak or chicken. Plus, the chipotle cream sauce can be made up to 3 days in advanced.—Robert Taylor, Shawnee, Kansas

  1. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper.

Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute sliced onion, mushrooms and poblano pepper in 2 tablespoons butter until tender. Remove from the heat; stir in sliced steak.
  3. In a small saucepan, saute chopped onion in remaining butter until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the cream, chipotle, cumin and bouillon; cook and stir until thickened.
  4. Cut ciabatta in half horizontally then cut into four equal portions. Place cheese on bottom bread slices; top with steak mixture, chipotle cream sauce and remaining bread. Cook on a panini maker or indoor grill for 3-4 minutes or until bread is browned and cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.
