I had these ingredients I needed to use; flank steak, spinach, kalamata olives, mushrooms, shallots, garlic, feta cheese, 2 pieces of bacon, and some petite green beans...oh and thyme, salt/pepper. I bet you can guess what I stuffed the flank steak with. :)
Be sure to begin rolling the flank steak with the long side facing you..put the stuffing in the middle. I had some spinach already cooked...I drained it and smooshed it to get all of the liquid out. I diced everything else up..and cooked it in the bacon drippings. Only two pieces of bacon people. [I didn't cook the feta]
I did pound the flank steak out a bit...I used parchment paper over the top before I began beating the meat. It's neater that way don'tcha know.
I put the stuffing down the center..rolled it and then tied it with kitchen string..about every 1 and 1/2 inches. I then salt and peppered the outside and seared it on all sides. I threw it into a 375 degree oven for 22 minutes...then let it rest for 10 minutes covered with foil. As you can see..it is med. rare so cook it longer if you want it medium but not too much longer!
I steamed the green beans in one of those cool steamer bags for 4 minutes, added a pinch of thyme to the bag..shook it up...and then we ate. It really was easy and very delicious...and it looks nice too.
Okay...I hate writing recipes down...and I hate following recipes. That's why I love to cook and HATE baking.
