Caesar-Style Steak Sandwiches

This tasty sandwich boasts all the flavors of a traditional Caesar salad, with crusty bread standing in for the croutons. Any hearty rustic bread can be substituted for the baguette.

1 1/2 lb. beef sirloin steak (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 baguette, halved horizontally, cut crosswise into 4 pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup refrigerated Caesar salad dressing
1 cup shaved Parmesan cheese*
8 romaine lettuce heart leaves
8 tomato slices

1. Heat grill. Sprinkle steak with pepper. Grill, covered, over medium-high heat or coals 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare, turning once. Remove steak; cover loosely with foil. Let stand 5 minutes before thinly slicing.

2. Meanwhile, brush cut sides of baguette with oil. Grill, covered, 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown. Brush cut sides of bread with dressing; top bottom pieces with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, steak and remaining bread.

TIP *Shave cheese with vegetable peeler.
