Grilled Steak Sandwiches with Asiago Cheese & Marinated Watercress, Onion, & Tomato Salad

From Bon Appetit Magazine (The Lady added the Asiago Cheese to the recipe…)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons dry mustard, divided
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 2-pound well-trimmed tri-tip beef roast
  • 4 large plum tomatoes, very thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces BelGioioso Asiago cheese, planed
  • 1 bunch watercress, stems trimmed
  • 1/2 white onion, very thinly sliced
  • 6 5-inch pieces French baguette, cut horizontally almost in half, opened flat

Preparation

  • Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Whisk oil, vinegar, and 3/4 teaspoon mustard in large bowl. Season dressing with salt and pepper. Transfer 2 tablespoons dressing to small bowl; whisk in sugar and 1 teaspoon mustard. Sprinkle beef all over with salt and pepper, then top with mixture from small bowl.
  • Grill beef until thermometer inserted into thickest part registers 120°F to 125°F for rare, turning occasionally, about 30 minutes. Place on cutting board; let rest 10 minutes. Cut very thinly across grain.
  • Meanwhile, add tomatoes, watercress, and onion to dressing in large bowl. Marinate while beef grills, tossing occasionally. Grill bread, cut side down, until just crusty, about 3 minutes; place on plates, grilled side up.
  • Arrange beef slices over bread. Using tongs and draining slightly, top with salad. Finish with planed Asiago cheese.
