  1. In a small bowl mix together the oil, cola, molasses, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, garlic, black pepper and lime juice. Put the steak into a large shallow bowl and pour in the marinade. Move the steak around to assure the marinade is covering the meat. Allow to marinate 2 hours or up to 4 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the grill over medium heat.
  3. Remove the steak from the marinade and put it on the grill. Cook for 4 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Brush the bread slices with cream cheese. Slice the steak against the grain into very thin strips. Top the cheese with a strip of meat and a red pepper strip. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve.
