Spinach-Stuffed Flank Steak
Servings: 6 Prep 15 mins Cook 5 mins Roast 425°F 35 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 flank steak, about 1-1/2 pounds
  • 1 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 4 ounces sun-dried tomato- or herb-garlic-flavored feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Make It

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Place a rack in a shallow baking pan. Coat with cooking spray.

2. Lay steak on work surface. Starting at a long side, slice steak in half without cutting through all the way. Open like a book and flatten to an even thickness.

3. In a bowl, combine spinach, feta, bread crumbs, 1 tablespoon of the oil and the beaten egg.

4. Season steak with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Press spinach mixture onto steak, leaving a 1-inch border. Beginning on a short end, roll up to enclose filling. Tie steak with cotton twine at 2-inch intervals.

5. Rub steak with remaining tablespoon oil and season with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

6. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brown meat on all sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer steak to prepared rack.

7. Roast at 425 degrees F for 35 minutes or until internal temperature registers 135 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove meat from oven; let rest, covered, 10 minutes before slicing.
