Updated Aug 11, 2014

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced (2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 oz blue cheese, crumbled (1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 beef flank steak, 3/4 to 1 inch thick (1 lb)
  • 4 demi French baguette rolls (5 to 6 inches), cut in half horizontally

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Add onions; cook, stirring occasionally, 10 to 12 minutes or until deep golden brown. Add vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper; cook 1 minute longer or until liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix cheese, mayonnaise and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.
  • 3
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Sprinkle steak with remaining 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Place steak on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook for 8- 10 minutes turning once for medium rare or until of desired doneness. Transfer steak to cutting board; let rest 10 minutes.
  • 4
    Lightly brush cut sides of rolls with remaining 2 tablespoons of the oil. Place rolls, cut side down, on grill rack. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until golden.
  • 5
    Thinly slice steak across grain on the diagonal. Divide steak among bottom halves of rolls; top each with one-fourth of the onions. Spread cut sides of baguette tops with cheese mixture; place on top of onions. Serve immediately.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Don't be in a rush to caramelize the onions. Cooking them longer over medium heat brings out their natural sweetness and helps to avoid burning.
  • tip 2
    To broil steak, place steak on broiler pan. Broil with top about 4 inches from heat 4 1/2 minutes per side for medium rare or until desired doneness. Transfer steak to cutting board; let rest 10 minutes.
  • tip 3
    If you’re in the mood to splurge, try using New York strip steak in place of the flank steak. Don’t be in a rush to caramelize the onions. Cooking them longer over medium heat brings out their natural sweetness and helps to avoid burning.
