2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped Kalamata olives
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel

3.Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange bell peppers around steak. Grill flank steak, covered, 11 to 16 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill,16 to 21 minutes); skirt steak 7 to 12 minutes (8 to 12 minutes on gas grill) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F)doneness, turning occasionally. Grill peppers 12 to 16 minutes (7 to 11 minutes on gas grill) or until tender, turning occasionally.
4.Carve steak across the grain into thin slices. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired.
5.Meanwhile cut bread lengthwise in half. Grill, cut sides down, 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Spread goat cheese on toasted sides of bread. Stir basil into artichoke relish. Top bread bottom with steak slices, relish and peppers. Close sandwich. Cut crosswise into quarters.


Cook's Tip:  Relish can be made 1 day ahead. This recipe can be doubled.

Cook's Tip:  One beef Top Sirloin Steak, cut 1 inch thick (about 1 pound), may be substituted for Flank or Skirt Steak. Decrease marinating time to 2 hours. Grill steak, covered, 11 to 15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 13 to 16 minutes) for medium rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally.
