Recipe: Steak Sandwich with Green Onion Aioli


My weekends are usually reserved for experimenting in the kitchen.  Sometimes I'll try a new recipe, and sometimes I'll throw together what ever is in sight, and hope that it turns out somewhat edible.  

This week was one of those weeks where instead of cooking skirt steak the same way the last few times, I grilled it with simple seasoning and stuffed it in a sandwich.  

I did cheat a little, though.  I found a simple aioli recipe to help add flavor to an otherwise plain sandwich.
