I love to cook steak and use the leftovers to make other dishes. Day-old steak is generally better than the original steak itself. The seasonings have had more time to work their way into the meat and infuse their full flavor.
- 2 cups white vinegar
- 2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 yellow pepper, cut into thin matchsticks
- 1/2 red onion, cut into thin matchsticks
- 1 carrot, peeled and cut into thin matchsticks
- 1 cup radish, cut into thin matchsticks
- 10 ounces leftover steak, sliced across the grain
- 1/2 cup leftover basil pesto
- 4 ounces sliced feta cheese
- 2 ciabatta rolls, cut in half crosswise
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. In a saucepan bring vinegar, water, salt and sugar to a boil.
3. In a mixing bowl add all cut vegetables. Pour boiling liquid over the vegetables, cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
4. Spread a liberal amount of pesto on both halves of the rolls. Put sliced steak on one side of each roll and feta cheese on the other.
5. Place the steak-topped sides of the sandwich on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for 5 minutes.
6. Strain the liquid off of the vegetables.
7. Remove sandwich from the oven and top the steak with the vegetables. Put cheese side on top and serve immediately.
