Texas-Style Steak Sandwiches Recipe

I love the bold flavor of these hearty sandwiches. They cook quickly on the grill and taste great whether they're topped with salsa or guacamole.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1 beef flank steak (1/2 pound)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

"The meat was delicious, but the sandwich still felt sort of plain and the guacamole squished out as you ate the sandwich. Next time will do it up with a chipotle mayo, lettuce, tomato slices, avocado slices, red onion and maybe some fresh jalapeno slices."
