6 medium clove(s), unpeeled

2 cup(s), or grape tomatoes, chopped

English cucumber(s)

½ medium, peeled and diced

uncooked red onion(s)

½ medium, thinly sliced


¼ cup(s), fresh, chopped

canned green chili peppers

½ oz, 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced

apple cider vinegar

3 Tbsp

olive oil

1 Tbsp

uncooked lean trimmed sirloin beef

1 pound(s), steak, trimmed

dried oregano

2 tsp

table salt

½ tsp

black pepper

½ tsp

mixed grain bread

4 slice(s), country-style, toasted


  1. Combine the water and garlic in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until the garlic is very tender, about 10 minutes; drain.
  2. When the garlic is cool enough to handle, remove the skin. Put the garlic in a small bowl and mash with a fork.
  3. Toss together the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, cilantro, jalapeño pepper, vinegar, and oil in a medium bowl.
  4. Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray and preheat the broiler. Sprinkle the steak with the oregano, salt, and pepper. Broil the steak 5 inches from the heat until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of the steak registers 145°F for medium-rare, about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand 5 minutes. Cut the steak across the grain into thin slices.
  5. Spread the mashed garlic evenly over the bread. Top the bread evenly with the steak and salsa. Yields 1 sandwich per serving.
