Before starting, preheat your broiler to high/low. Wash and dry all produce. In Step 5, use this garlic guide to determine what garlic level you prefer: 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp medium and 1 tsp extra! Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When the pan, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 3-4 min. Add 1 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl) and season with salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden-brown, 6-8 min.


Meanwhile, halve tomatoes. Roughly chop 1 tbsp oregano (dbl for 4 ppl). Toss together tomatoes, oregano, 1 tbsp vinegar and 1 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4ppl) in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


When onions are done, remove the pan from heat. Stir in remaining vinegar, until onions are coated, 1 min. Transfer caramelized onions to a small bowl. Set aside. Carefully wipe the pan clean. On a clean cutting board, pat steak dry with paper towel, then season with salt and pepper.


Heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then steak. Pan-fry, until cooked to desired doneness, 4-6 min per side. ** When steak is done, remove pan from heat. Transfer steak to a plate. Loosely cover with foil and set aside to rest, 3-5 min.


Meanwhile, peel, then mince or grate garlic. Stir together mayo and 1/4 tsp minced garlic in another small bowl. (NOTE: Reference garlic guide.) Set aside. Halve ciabatta buns. On a baking sheet, arrange ciabatta halves, cut side up and brush each half with 1 tsp oil. Toast in middle of oven, until golden-brown, 2-3 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on your ciabatta so that it doesn't burn!)


Thinly slice steak. Spread garlic-mayo over toasted ciabatta halves, then top with steak and caramelized onions. Divide open-faced sandwiches between plates and serve with marinated tomatoes on the side. Tear bocconcini into bite-sized pieces over tomatoes, then season with salt and pepper.
