Let's Make It
Pound steaks to 1/8-inch thickness; place in shallow dish. Mix 2 Tbsp. dressing, lemon juice and garlic until blended; pour over steaks. Turn to evenly coat both sides of steaks. Refrigerate 1 hour to marinate.
Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Heat 1 Tbsp. of the remaining dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add 2 steaks; cook 2-1/2 min. on each side or until done. Remove steaks from skillet; place on bottom halves of 2 rolls. Cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining dressing, steaks and rolls.
Add onions to skillet; cook on medium heat 5 min. or until tender and lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Stir in parsley; spoon over steaks. Cover with top halves of rolls; brush both sides of sandwiches with butter.
Heat 2 large skillets on medium-high heat. Place sandwiches in 1 skillet. (If all 4 sandwiches do not fit in the skillet, cook sandwiches in batches.) Place second heated skillet on top of sandwiches; gently press down on top skillet to flatten sandwiches slightly. Cook 4 to 5 min. on each side or until both sides of sandwiches are crisp and golden brown.
Prepare using thin round steaks.
Substitute 1 split French bread loaf (1 lb.), cut into 4 pieces, or 4 club rolls for the Cuban rolls.
Use a Panini Grill
Instead of using 2 heated skillets to cook and flatten the sandwiches, cook the sandwiches in a heated panini grill.
