Recipe Details:

For Marinated Flank Steak
1 2lb flank steak
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. Zatarain's(tm) Creole seasoning
1 tbsp. ancho chili powder
1 tbsp. ground sweet paprika (mild)
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. mustard powder
2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

For Sandwiches
8 slices of jack cheese
8 slices of sourdough bread
a few cups of arugula
1 1/2-2 tsp Chipotle Tabasco Sauce (depending on how spicy you like it)
1//4 cup mayonaise

In a bowl, combine the marinade ingredients (minus the steak) and stir well. Place steak in a large baking dish. Add marinade. Coat steak well on both sides. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2-6 hours, turning and re-coating ocassionaly in its dish.

In a small bowl, stir together the Chipotle Tabasco Sauce with the mayo. Butter one side of each slice of bread.

Heat grill to medium-high. Grill steak for 6-10 minutes per side. While steak is cooking, place sourdough slices, butter-side-down, on grill. Add 2 slices of cheese to 4 of the sourdough slices. Grill quickly until cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Remove from grill. When steak is done cooking, transfer to a plate, cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice against the grain.

To assemble sandwiches, spread mayo on the non-buttered side of the cheeseless bread slices. Lie 4-6 steak slices onto the bread. Top with arugula. Cover with remaining bread slice with melted cheese. Cut each sandwich in half and serve!
