Flank Steak Toast with Arugula, Pickled Onion, and Parmesan Aioli



1 piece of flank steak, marinated in SMAK DAB’s Garlic Mustard Marinade (found in the marinades section)

Pickled Onions

¾ cup rice vinegar

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp sugar 

1 cup thinly sliced red onion

Parmesan Aioli

¾ cup mayo

1 tbsp SMAK DAB Beer Chipotle Mustard

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/3 cup finely grated parmesan cheese

½ tsp black pepper

Pinch of chile flakes


Pickled Onions

In a microwave safe glass dish, combine vinegar, salt, and sugar. Microwave for 2 minutes or until the seasonings are dissolved and the liquid is hot. In a sealable container, add the onions and pour over the hot mixture. Place in the refrigerator overnight. 

Parmesan Aioli

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and refrigerate until assembly.


Grill steak to desired doneness, and rest for 15 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain. 


On your favorite toasted bread, spread a thin layer of the aioli, and top with some arugula. Arrange some thinly sliced meat, and add some pickled onions. Finish with a drizzle of the aioli, and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt. Serve immediately!
