¼ cup prepared basil pesto sauce, divided
1 loaf (8 to 10 ounces) focaccia bread, cut horizontally in half
4 ounces smoked mozzarella or provolone cheese, sliced 1/8 to ¼ inch thick
1 medium plum tomato, cut into ¼-inch thick slices
- Cut beef steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/8 to ¼-inch thick strips. Combine 2 tablespoons pesto and beef in medium bowl. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes to 2 hours.
- Heat oven to 350°F. Remove some bread from center of cut sides of loaf if very thick, creating a pocket. Spread remaining 2 tablespoons pesto evenly over cut sides of bread; top each half evenly with cheese. Place on metal baking sheet. Bake in 350°F oven 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through and cheese melts.
