Say hello to simple, delicious, and easy to make Flank Steak stuffed with a creamy combination of spinach, sun dried tomatoes, and feta cheese. The recipe looks fancy and complicated, but it’s surprisingly easy.
HOW TO MAKE STUFFED FLANK STEAK
First thing you will need to do is butterfly the steak. OR, you can just ask the butcher to do it for you. That’s what I do.
But, if you’re set on doing it yourself, to butterfly flank steak, simply place your hand on top of the meat and cut horizontally into the steak, go slow, until just about 1 inch before you would cut the meat into 2 separate pieces. Now open it up and TA-DAHM – it looks like a butterfly! 😳😄
HOW TO STUFF FLANK STEAK
- Our next mission is to combine baby spinach, chopped sun dried tomatoes, and crumbled feta cheese and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
- Take that filling and spread it over our piece of steak.
- Place on a cutting board and tightly roll the meat away from you.
- Get some kitchen twine and simply tie a few strong knots so that the meat holds together while cooking.
- Transfer to a baking dish, top with your favorite tomato, marinara, or pasta sauce and bake.
- Remove from oven, let rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
HOW TO GRILL STUFFED FLANK STEAK
- PREHEAT grill to 450F with lid closed.
- Place stuffed flank steak on preheated grill and cook for 10 minutes per side.
- Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
HOW TO MAKE AHEAD
- Once you stuff, roll, and tie the beef, you can refrigerate it for up to 8 hours.
HOW TO FREEZE
- Make sure the cooked steak has cooled down completely.
- Cut the steak into pinwheels and wrap each pinwheel in plastic wrap.
- Transfer pinwheels to freezer bags and freeze for up to 6 months.
