Description

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 lb. Flank Steak
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups Blue Cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup French’s Fried Onions, crumbled
  • Scallions, thinly sliced
  • Small Sweet Peppers, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Cook the steak: generously season steak with freshly ground black pepper and salt.
  2. Place 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large frying pan and preheat over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add the steak and cook 8-10 minutes, flipping half way through, until desired doneness is reached. Remove from pan, let rest 5-10 minutes, then slice thin against the grain.
  3. Assemble the crostini: Preheat oven to 450F. Lay baguette slices out on a sheet pan in a single layer. Divide half of the blue cheese amongst baguette slices. Place in the oven for 2-3 minutes, until cheese just begins to melt; remove from oven. Layer with thin slices of steak, fried onions and another topping of blue cheese.
  4. Bake another 5-6 minutes until blue cheese is melted. Garnish with thinly sliced scallions and sweet peppers. Serve immediately.
