Cover and let marinate at room temp for 2 hrs. or in the frig overnight. Bring to room temp before grilling. Preheat a grill w/hot coals.

Shortly before serving, grill the steak for about 5 mins. per side for med-rare. Let the meat rest for about 10 mins. before slicing. Thinly slice on the diagonal and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Set aside.

Just before serving, assemble the sandwiches: Lightly toast the bread and spread one side of each slice with a heaping tbsp of refried beans. Top each with shredded lettuce, and then tomato slices. With the back of a spoon, cover each sandwich with a heaping tbsp of mashed avocado. Divide the meat slices among the sandwiches, sprinkle w/salt and pepper and serve.
