    Preheat grill to high heat. Remove steak from marinade and let excess drip off. Grill until seared and cooked to taste, 3-5 minutes per side for medium-rare to medium. Transfer to a cutting board to rest 10 minutes, then slice thinly against the grain.

    While steak rests, toss the peppers in a large bowl with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer to a grill pan or basket and cook for 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally, until blistered and charred. Cut off and discard stems.

    To assemble sliders, split a bun and spread the bottom with Challenge Lactose Free Butter. Top with 3-5 slices of steak and 3 shishito peppers. Squeeze lime juice over top, spread more butter on the top bun and close the sandwich. Repeat with remaining sliders and serve.
