Every once and a while, my family likes to have steak. However, my kids get bored with the same old, same old steak on the grill routine, so I like to look for ways to jazz it up. This recipe is great because it calls for flank steak, which is typically an inexpensive cut, and one steak can feed my entire family. It came out really good and flavorful.
2 lb flank steak, cut into 4 pieces
1 package chopped frozen spinach, thawed
1 container crumbled blue cheese
1 jar roasted red peppers
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp pepper
1. Squeeze excess liquid from the spinach and place it in a large bowl. Chop the red peppers and add them to the bowl.
2. Add about 1/2 to 1/3 cup of the blue cheese crumbles, then sprinkle on 1/4 tsp of the garlic salt and 1/4 tsp of the pepper.
3. Drizzle 1 tbsp of the olive oil on top and stir to combine.
4. Spoon the mixture evenly onto the top of each strip of steak.
5. Starting at one end, roll the steak up, and close with cooking twine. Use a spoon to push and pieces of stuffing that fall out the sides back in.
6. Rub each roll with the remaining olive oil, then season with the rest of the garlic salt and pepper.
7. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 25-30 minutes, turning once. Allow the meat to rest before serving.
This was my first attempt at stuffed steak, and I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. The hardest part was locating the cooking twine, which I finally found hanging on the side of the meat freezer in my supermarket! Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back next week!
