Red Wine-Marinated Steak Sandwiches

WOW! These are so amazing! The only thing I would do differently would be to not add the lemon in the greens. It was just too sour and therefore I will not be adding it next time. Also you need to very thinly slice the steak. Also I should have sliced the french bread a little thinner than I did. Oh well live and learn.

The carrots and potatoes are amazing and work well the sandwiches.

Roasted herbed potatoes

I just sliced up some fresh red potatoes instead of frozen

Preheat oven to 375.

Combine 1 (1 1/4 pound) package refrigerated  new potato wedges, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a large bowl, tossing well; place on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until lightly browned, turning after 15 minutes.

Steam baby carrots and serve.
