A flavorful soy and sesame oil-mayo is drizzled over grilled steak and vegetables for super steak sandwiches. Packed with delicious vegetables including grilled eggplant, sweet red pepper and scallions and then finished with arugula, this sandwich is a great way to get in your daily vegetables. Add a bit of grated fresh ginger or some sriracha or wasabi to the sauce to add some Asian heat. This sandwich is also great at room temperature so it’s a great make-ahead recipe. It makes an excellent one-dish meal or serve it with fruit or coleslaw.
