How to make this recipe
Heat a grill pan. Rub the steak all over with 2 tablespoons of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning once, until medium-rare, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes.
In a bowl, toss the spinach with the lemon juice and the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Season with salt.
Spread a heaping tablespoon of the shrimp-chile jam on the bottom half of each roll and spread 1/2 tablespoon of the butter on each of the top halves. Spread with mustard, if using. Mound the spinach mixture on the rolls, top with the steak and serve.
