For the make-ahead sauce: In food processor bowl, combine the shallot, chile, garlic, bay leaves, mustard seed, sherry, Worcestershire sauce, and peppercorns, process into a smooth paste. Place the flavor paste in a pot and combine with the ketchup, soy, and stock. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook 30 minutes. Cool and refrigerate for make-ahead meal.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F to crisp the bread.
Reheat the sauce over medium-low heat.
Place the flank steak in the freezer 5 minutes or until cold. Remove and shred or cut the cold flank steak against the grain. Throw the bread in the oven to crisp it up.

Cut the rolls open and stuff the hoagies with spicy greens and hot-n-saucy steak.
