Submitted by: HELLOWORLD

Introduction

Delicious on the grill and a real crowd pleaser - the sauce is terrific with a lot of other foods, too, or even as a salad dressing.

Ingredients

    For Steak and Marinade
    2 1/2 lbs flank steak
    1 canned chipotle chile
    2 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 tbsp chopped cilantro
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    10 tbsp (.6 cup) lime juice

    For Sauce:
    3 canned chipotle peppers, pureed
    1/4 cup honey
    2 tbsp peanut oil
    2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    2 tbsp brown mustard
    1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
    2 garlic cloves
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp salt
    8 slices crusty 7-grain french bread

Directions

Makes 8 generous portions.

To Marinate Steak: Place the steak in a large dish or baking pan. Mix together the chipotle, garlic, cilantro, vegetable oil, and lime juice in a bowl and pour over the steak. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours, turning occasionally. Prepare the grill.

For Sauce: Combine the chipotles, honey, peanut oil, vinegar, mustard, lime juice, garlic, and cumni in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Stir in the cilantro (optional) and season with salt and pepper to taste.

To Prepare Steak: Remove the stark and season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat for about 5 minutes on each side for medium rare, 7 minutes per side for medium, or to the desired doneness. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for about 4 minutes. With a sharp knife, thinly slice the steak across the grain and at a sharp angle.

To Serve: Serve the steak on top of a slice of the French bread and accompany each serving with several tablespoons of the sauce.
