Stuffed Flank Steak

HAPPY CINCO! Today is such a happy day for me.  You see, Cinco de Mayo is like the biggest holiday among my friends.  Because we will take any excuse to drink tequila. Any.

And I often hear that people get a little stuck coming up with creative ways to celebrate cinco.  They’re all chips, guac, I don’t know should we have a piñata?

Stuffed Flank Steak

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Lay steak on work surface. Holding sharp knife parallel to work surface and starting at a long side, slice flank steak in half without cutting all the way through; effectively butterflying the steak. Flatten slightly to an even thickness. In a skillet, cook the garlic and peppers in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until soft.  Add the spinach and cook until wilted.  Remove from the heat. In medium-size bowl, combine spinach, cheese, peppers, garlic, bread crumbs, egg yolk, 1/4 teaspoon of the garlic salt,  and half the salt and pepper. Season steak with an additional 1/4 teaspoon of the garlic salt. Press filling onto steak, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides. Roll up steak to enclose filling, beginning on a short side. Tie steak with kitchen twine to secure. Rub outside with oil, then sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper. Roast for 35 minutes, then broil and broil for 5 minutes to brown. Let meat rest 15 minutes. Remove twine and slice.

Love,

Whit

  1. Hi, I just stumbled onto your blog from pinterest (as you might guess, from the restaurant-quality steak recipe). Your blog is great! I love the pictures, recipes, and humor. When I found out you’re from and now live in my home state, it was the cherry on top! Also, I know (from personal experience) that looking for a job after a move can be an emotional roller coaster, hope you and your husband the best during this time.
