We've had these a couple of times in the last few weeks. These sandwiches might be one of our most favorite dinners.
I've followed the recipe exactly except that I've marinated the steak all day instead of just 30 minutes and both times I've forgotten the cilantro. It's still yummy though.
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon water
2 carrots, grated
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
4 hero rolls
1 pound sliced Flank Steak with Lime Marinade
In a small bowl, stir together garlic, sugar, red-pepper flakes, vinegar, and water.
In another bowl, toss together carrots, scallions, and cilantro leaves. Toss with half the vinegar mixture.
Split and lightly toast hero rolls; dividing evenly, layer with carrot mixture and sliced flank steak. Drizzle with remaining vinegar mixture, if desired.
1/3 cup (about 4 limes) freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 scallions (about 1/3 cup), thinly sliced
2 tablespoons minced, peeled fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
1 1/2 pounds flank steak
Vegetable oil, for grates
Coarse salt and ground black pepper
In a resealable plastic bag, combine lime juice, soy sauce, scallions, ginger, and red-pepper flakes. Add steak, and seal bag (place in a dish to catch any leaks); marinate in the refrigerator, turning occasionally, up to 1 hour.
Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Remove steak from marinade, letting excess drip off (discard marinade); season with salt and black pepper. Place on grill; cover. Cook, turning once, until meat reaches desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing thinly.

I regularly crave hot chocolate in the winter time. Seriously. Like every day.
I like the real stuff. No powder and water mixed for me.
If you crave the H.C. like I do, here's a quicky that's sure to please.
milk (1 cup per person)
chocolate (nestle quick works, or Hershey's syrup, or if you were really indulgent, actual chocolate)
1-2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
vanilla ice cream (1 and 1/2 scoops per person)
Put a pan on the stove. Add your milk, chocolate, sugar and vanilla. Keep on the stove top until it's at the perfect temperature for you. Pour into cups. Add ice cream scoops on top.
