Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup canola mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pound flank steak, trimmed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (12-ounce) French bread baguette
  • 1 cup arugula leaves

Preparation

1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until boiling. Stir in onion. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

3. Combine mayonnaise and next 4 ingredients (through garlic).

4. Rub steak evenly with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place steak on grill rack; grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from grill; let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices.
