  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 small garlic clove, pressed
  • 1, 1-pound loaf ciabatta, halved horizontally
  • 3 medium Portobello mushrooms, brushed, and sliced
  • 2 small red bell peppers, quartered lengthwise
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1/3-inch rounds
  • 1-1/2 pounds skirt steak, cut crosswise into 6-inch pieces
  • Olive oil (for brushing)
  • 6 slices extra sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Prepare the BBQ on high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise, vinegar, oregano, basil and garlic together with a wire whisk.
  3. Hollow out the loaf by removing some of the bread.
  4. Place the vegetables, steak and the bread (cut side up) on a platter. Brush all ingredients with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Grill the vegetables until just tender and slightly charred about 5 minutes. Grill the steak strips for about 3 minutes per side until medium-rare.
  6. While letting the steak sit for 5 minutes, toast the bread, cut side down, for approximately 3 minutes.
  7. Generously spread the mayonnaise mixture on each side of the bread, then fill with slices of steak, grilled vegetables and sliced cheese. Cut into 6 sandwiches and serve.
