Steak & Onion Bites

This is a filling appetizer to serve at the start of a special dinner party. Like a cross between bruschetta and a slider, toasted baguette rounds are topped with tender steak. The chipotle spread is easy to prepare and miles ahead of plain mayo.

> 1 1/4 lb top sirloin steak
> 1 tsp crushed garlic
> 1/4 tsp dried oregano
> 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
> 1 tsp butter
> 2 cups thinly sliced red onion
> 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
> 2 tbsp granulated sugar
> 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
> 1/2 tsp ground chipotle chili pepper
> 12 oz French bread baguette (3-inch diameter)
> 2 cups tender greens or baby spinach


Preheat broiler. Trim fat from steak and place on broiler pan. Rub both sides of steak with garlic, oregano, and black pepper. Broil 6 minutes on each side until medium rare or internal temperature reaches 145°F. Allow steak to rest 10 minutes before slicing against the grain into thin strips.
Heat butter in a small skillet over medium heat and sauté onions just until starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Add vinegar and sugar and continue to cook, about 5 minutes, until liquid is reduced. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and chipotle pepper. Slice baguette into ½-inch thick slices.
To assemble, spread chipotle mayonnaise on bread slices. Top bread with beef slices, then with greens and onions.
Beef, onions and mayonnaise may be prepared a day ahead and refrigerated until ready to assemble.
