  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Place slices of baguette on a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush with 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil. Sprinkle with thyme and season with salt and pepper. Bake 4-5 minutes until bread is golden brown. Set aside.

  3. Heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil in a medium-sized frying pan over medium-low heat. Add the onions and brown for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper and mix in balsamic vinegar. Set aside.

  4. Prepare gravy according to package directions.

  5. Season the flank steak with salt and pepper. Heat vegetable oil in a medium-sized frying pan over medium-high heat. Brown the steak for 2 minutes per side. Place steak on a lined baking sheet and bake 4-5 minutes, until medium rare (145°F/63°C). Brush with prepared gravy and let sit 5 minutes.

  6. Cut steak into 12 slices. Divide caramelized onions between baguette slices. Top with flank steak and a drizzle of remaining gravy. Garnish with parmesan petals and parsley.
