  2. Grill flank steak to an internal temperature of 125 degrees. Remove from heat, cover with foil and allow to rest 30 minutes, up to overnight refrigerated. 

  3. Generously brush each side of the bread slices with olive oil and lightly season with salt. 

  4. On medium heat, grill each side of the bread until crisp and browned.

  5. When ready to assemble, slice the steak into thin strips.
