I love you, Bobby Flay! (Roast Beef edition)

I was just perusing the Food Network during lunch, and did you know that Bobby Flay has teamed up with Hellmann's to make his version of sandwiches using their Mayo? Sandwiches are great for lunches, but I get so tired of the turkey/cheese or ham/cheese combo- how much more boring can it get? After finding some great recipes online, I decided to try this. I don't normally like roast beef, but this was quite tasty, and can be served as a light dinner option since it's a warm sandwich.

London Broil, Aged Cheddar, and Watercress on Croissant with Horseradish Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Hellmann's mayo
2 Tbsp Hellmann's Dijonnaise mustard
2 Tbsp prepared horseradish, drained
Salt & freshly ground pepper
1/2 lb thinly-sliced London broil or Roast beef*
8 slices of Cheddar cheese
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 small bunch watercress (I used romaine)
4 croissants, slices cross-wise

1. Make the "special sauce": Whisk together the mayo, Dijonnaise mustard, and horseradish in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper:

2. Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Add the beef in an even layer and cook for 30 seconds per side, just to warm through. Top the slices of beef with 1-2 slices of cheese, cover with a lid and let melt, about 20 seconds.
3. Spread some of the Special sauce on both sides of the croissant (I like the croissant toasted). Layer on the beef, onion, and watercress.

* You can also use 1-1/4 lb cooked flank steak, trimmed of excess fat and pre-marinated in olive oil, chopped garlic, and fresh thyme for at least 2 hours.
