  • 1/4 cup prepared chili sauce

  1. In a bowl, combine first 8 ingredients for marinade. Place steak in a non-metal baking dish; pour marinade over steak. Cover and marinate overnight in refrigerator, turning occasionally. Let steak come to room temperature before grilling. Remove steak from marinade; drain off excess.
  2. Combine butter and garlic; spread on cut bread. Sprinkle each half with 1 cup cheese. Cut 2 sheets of heavy foil to wrap 2 sandwich halves and spray each sheet with cooking spray. Wrap halves, loosely, side by side in foil, 2 halves per packet.
  3. Set oven to broil. Place steak in broiler pan, 2-3 inches from top of oven. Broil 6 minutes each side. Remove steak, rest 10 minutes. Put bread in oven on middle rack. Broil 8 minutes or until cheese melts.
  4. Slice steak thinly, across the grain. Remove bread. Top grilled bread with sliced beef, serving open-face. Cut each loaf into 6 pieces. Serve immediately.
    Optional: garnish with cheese.
