Stuffed Flank Steak

You had better like blue cheese. I apparently do not and didn’t like this dish at all. Hubby ate a good amount of it, so if you like blue cheese, it’s pretty good.

Stuffed Flank Steak

Ingredients
  • 1 flank steak (1 1/2 to 2 pounds)
  • 1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Directions
1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Lay steak on work surface. Holding sharp knife parallel to work surface and starting at a long side, slice flank steak in half to opposite long side, without cutting all the way through; open up the steak like a book. Flatten slightly to an even thickness.
3. Squeeze liquid from spinach; discard liquid. In medium-size bowl, combine spinach, cheese, peppers, bread crumbs, egg yolk, 1/4 teaspoon each of the garlic salt and the pepper.
4. Season steak with an additional 1/4 teaspoon each of the garlic salt and pepper. Press filling onto steak, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides. Roll up steak to enclose filling, beginning on a short side; the grain of the meat will be running from left to right. Tuck any loose filling back into ends.
5.  Tie steak with cotton twine at 2-inch intervals to secure. Rub outside with oil, then sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each garlic salt and pepper.
6.  Roast at 425 degrees F for 35 minutes, then increase heat to broil and broil for 10 minutes, turning once. Let meat rest 15 minutes. Remove twine, slice and serve.
