How To Make Stuffed Flank Steak

December 20th, 2012 Cooking

If you've been looking to change up your cooking repertoire, why not try out stuffed flank steak? It's surprisingly easy to make, and once you master the basics, you should have no problem incorporating your own ingredients into the mix. This is something the kids may love to help you out with, too - they can help you prepare the stuffing, and most kids love the chance to tenderize the meat. If you'd like to give stuffed flank steak a shot, here's a recipe, courtesy of Reluctant Gourmet.

Ingredients 8 ounces fresh spinach 1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese 1/4 cup olive oil 2 cloves of garlic 3 red bell peppers, roasted 1 flank steak approximately 1 1/2 pounds, butterflied Salt and pepper, to taste 4 ounces of prosciutto 1 hot spicy pepper (your choice) cored, seeded and minced

Begin by roasting the red bell peppers. Once the exteriors are nice and charred, place them in a paper bag and let them sit for about 10 minutes. Next, peel off the skin. Wash and steam the spinach, then squeeze out all of the excess moisture. Mince the garlic, then place it in a food blender with the spinach, Parmesan, breadcrumbs and olive oil.

Lay the steak down flat, season with salt and pepper and add a layer of prosciutto. Place some roasted pepper on top of this, followed by a layer of the spinach mixture. Now, roll the steak up like a giant sushi, tying it together with kitchen string. Place in a 350-degree oven for about 40 minutes and you're done!
