Stuffed Flank Steak – Simple Saturday

Hi everyone! Martha here from Seaside Simplicity doing a quick fill in for Joanne today. This is one I posted just a week or two ago over at my blog. Since it’s the only blog worthy meal I’ve posted in awhile I thought I’d share it here too!

When the kids said “ugh, pizza again?” I knew it was time to get in the kitchen and cook a decent meal – true story, they really said that!

I wanted to make them something at least a little bit impressive, but it still had to be something fairly quick and easy. As I wandered through the grocery store I saw some beautiful stuffed flank steaks – a little over priced to buy them already made but simple enough to make myself at home and less expensive that way too.

Stuffed Flank Steak
Butterflied flank steak
Italian seasoning
Fresh spinach 
Shredded mozzarella cheese

Lay out the flank steak (they will butterfly it for you at the meat department if you ask nicely 🙂  Sprinkle the steak with Italian seasonings, spread with a layer of mozzarella cheese and a layer of baby spinach, tuck ends, roll up and tie with kitchen twine about every inch or so. Slice between twine and lay steak pinwheels over a bed of spinach in a baking pan. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until done to your liking. Give it a quick broil before removing from the oven to get all that cheesy goodness browned up just a bit. Remove and let rest for a few minutes.

Dinner is served!
This was so simple! I will definitely be making it again and probably often. I love that it can be made up ahead of time and just popped in the oven on those busy weeknights, and it’s definitely company worthy too!

Stop by and visit me at Seaside Simplicity, I’m having a Mardi Gras party this weekend!
