Preheat your broiler to high (to toast ciabatta). Start prepping when the oven comes up to temperature! 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!

Wash and dry all produce.* Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, 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 dark golden-brown, 6-8 min.

Heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then steak. Pan-fry, until cooked to desired doneness, 4-6 min per side. (TIP: Cook to a min. internal temp. of 63°C/145°F for medium-rare; steak size will affect doneness.**) 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. In another small bowl, stir together mayo and 1/4 tsp minced garlic. (NOTE: Reference garlic guide in Start Strong.) 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!)
