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?


Never fear, I have your back for a delicious stuffed flank steak that is so delicious and colorful, everyone will be dying for the recipe.

Stuffed Flank Steak



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.

  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.
