Stuffed Flank Steak

Introduction: Stuffed Flank Steak

About: I am a wife and a mother of two. I love reading, biking, kayaking and playing the recorder.

In this instructable, I will show you how to make stuffed flank steak.

Step 1: Ingredients

For this recipe, you will need:

2-2 1/2 lbs of flank steak

Provolone cheese (I used 9 slices, but you will need enough to cover the entire steak)

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp basil

1 tsp rubbed sage

2 tbsp parsley

1/2 tbsp garlic, minced

1/8 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp salt


butchers string

Step 2: In a Medium Bowl

Mix together 2 tbsp olive oil and all of the seasonings except for the salt and pepper.

Step 3: 1/2 the Flank

Slice the flank steak in half.

Step 4: Pound the Flank Steak

Place the flank steak in between to pieces of waxed paper and pound as thin as you can get it.

Step 5: Season

Spread the seasonings evenly over the steak.

Step 6: Top It With the Cheese

Layer the cheese over the top.

Step 7: Prepping the Toothpicks

Soak the toothpicks in a bowl of water.

Step 8: Roll It Up

Roll the flank steak as tight as you can.

Step 9: Tie It Off

Starting in the middle and working your way out, tie the butcher's string around the steak.

Step 10: Keep on With the Tying

Tie several more strings down the meat until it is completely secure.

Step 11: Slice the Meat

Cut slices of the meat between the strings

Step 12: Double Secure

Put a toothpick into each section of the slice meat.

Step 13: Fry It Up!

Using the last of the olive oil, fry both sides of the meat for 2-3 minutes on each side and season both with the salt and pepper.

Step 14: Now for the Second Cooking

Remove from the skillet and place on an oven safe dish.

Step 15: Bake!

Bake in an oven that's preheated 400• for 10 minutes.

Step 16: Don't Eat the String and Tooth Pick!

Remove the string and toothpick.

Step 17: Enjoy!

    I do the same, but layer baby spinach leaves before covering with the cheese. Meat, veggies & dairy all in one.

    We love flank steak, when first married in '69, it was considered a lesser cut and was fairly inexpensive, now going for over $12 a pound, I've seen filets going for less, go figure. ☺
