1. Prepare the Steak 

Start by seasoning your steak with salt, pepper, and any other desired spices. You can use a cut like flank steak or skirt steak for this recipe. Heat a skillet or grill over medium-high heat and cook the steak to your desired level of doneness. Once cooked, let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it thinly against the grain.

3. Prepare the Crostini 

Slice a baguette into thin slices and brush both sides with olive oil. Place the slices on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for about 8-10 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Alternatively, you can toast the slices on a grill or in a skillet until crisp.
