Steak Sandwich with Pickled Onions & Herb Mayonnaise

Look at that color. I have to say that lately I have been blowing the doors off homemade condiments but baby, where have you been all my life?

Three ingredients and 30 minutes. Yes, that's it. Nuke the water, vinegar and sugar for 4 minutes in a glass container. Spoon the onions into the mixture and let it sit on the counter for 30 minutes. Now, who can't do that? You will eat these on everything, and with the vinegar, they are so diabetic friendly you will want to start adoption proceedings.

Well "hi there, Mom & Dad."

Pickled Onions

* 1/4 cup water
* 1/4 cup cider vinegar
* 2 tablespoons sugar
* 1 cup thinly sliced red onion

Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 2-4 minutes or until boiling. Stir in onion. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Herb Mayonnaise
Makes about 1/2 cup

* 1/4 cup canola mayonnaise
* 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

Steak Sandwich
makes one large hero

* 1 pound flank steak, trimmed
* 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil $
* 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1 (12-ounce) French bread baguette or homemade (recipe here)

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
2. Rub steak evenly with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place steak on grill rack; grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from grill; let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices.
3. Cut baguette in half lengthwise. Hollow out top and bottom halves of bread, leaving a 1/2-inch-thick shell; reserve torn bread for another use. Place bread, cut sides down, on grill rack; grill 1 minute or until toasted.
4. Drain onion mixture; discard liquid. Arrange steak evenly over bottom half of baguette; top evenly with onion and arugula. Spread mayonnaise mixture over cut side of top baguette half; place on sandwich. Cut into 4 pieces.
