Flank Steak Sliders
To make the flank steak sliders, we marinate two flank steaks for two days, grill them outside, and then cool the meat in the refrigerator before slicing it for cold summer sandwiches. We top them with a a mixture of sour cream (24-ounce container) and Meyer's horseradish (8-ounce bottle). We serve them with Spicy Black Bean and Corn salsa (recipe follows).
The sandwiches and salsa pair well for an easy and tasty summer afternoon. Enjoy!
