Hanger Steak Sandwiches with Romesco Sauce, Arugula and Onions

When Alex and I made our Hanger Steak with Roast Vegetables and Romesco the other night we made two steaks, which left us with a nice rare hanger steak hanging out in the fridge, plus a tupperware full of leftover romesco sauce.  I had this vision in my head of a steak sandwich on ciabatta with the leftover steak, arugula, roast asparagus, and onions.  But then the grocery store didn't have any ciabatta, or really any bread that we wanted at all.  So we had to settle for an Italian loaf (the baguettes were totally skinny).  And we ran out of asparagus so there went the roast asparagus.  But this sandwich was really yummy regardless.  My only complaint was the bread - it was a little dry and tasteless, but sometimes you don't have time to hit a nice bakery for bread and have to deal with whatever is left at the grocery store.  It happens.  But if you make our Hanger Steak, I highly recommend doubling the amount of steak so you have some leftover and can make some steak sammies.  They're yummy.  I'm not going to post a recipe, since this sandwich is really just bread, a handful of arugula, some sliced steak, thinly sliced onions, and a generous smear of romesco sauce.  If you have roast asparagus or a nice tomato, feel free to add that too.  I also think a nice fried egg with a runny yolk would be a wonderful addition if you want to get messy.  And you can always customize to your own personal tastes.  That's the beauty of sandwiches.  Enjoy!
