Grilled Flat Iron Steak and Pepper Sammy (Gluten Free)

I was looking to cook up some beautiful flat iron steaks but I only had about 30 minutes before work so I decided to make a quick lunch sandwich.  The result was a meaty, cheesey, hearty gluten free meal.  Don't feel like you have to use Flat Iron's; this is a great way to use any kind of steak.  Even better, slice up some leftovers from the night before and make this sandwich for lunch the next day.  Fantastic.

Wanna take a bite???
Ingredients (for 2 sandwiches):
4 slices Gluten Free Italian Baked Bread
2-4oz flat iron steaks, set out to room temp
1 bell pepper sliced or 1/2c frozen bell pepper slices
2 slices provolone cheese
1tbs mayonaise
1tbs dijon mustard
2tbs butter

1. Preheat grill to high.  When hot, turn to medium high.  Salt and pepper the steaks generously and grill on both sides until desired doneness.  Set out for a few minutes before slicing.
2. Meanwhile, if using fresh peppers, cut into 4 pieces and place on grill with steak.  When soft and charred on both sides, take off the grill and slice.  If using frozen peppers, heat a tsp oil in a skillet and saute until done.  Make sure you drain all the liquid (you don't want them to sog out your bread!)
3. Spread 1/2tbs mayo and mustard on one side of a slice of bread.  Top with steak, peppers and cheese.  Then top with the other slice of bread.
4. In a nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium high heat.  Add sandwiches and turn heat to medium.  Cook on both sides until bread is grilled and cheese is melted.  Serve hot.
