Flank Steak Stuffed with Spinach and Blue Cheese

So Winter is back, I guess it really hasn't left us.  There was a brief, nano second of spring, but that was it!  So still feeling the need for comfort food 'cuz it just makes you feel warm inside!

Flank Steak Stuffed with Spinach and Blue Cheese
Doesn't that look good?  Impressive too with the spinach/blue cheese mixture on the inside, right?

The recipe comes from Family Circle at, but I changed it up a bit.  The flank steak is stuffed with a a yummy spinach and blue cheese mixture.  Here's what you need and how to make it:

1 (1 1/2 to 2 lb) flank steak
1 package of frozen chopped spinach
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
2 Tbsp dried bread crumbs
1 egg yolk
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp ground pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Lay steak on work surface. Holding sharp knife parallel to work surface and starting at a long side, slice flank steak in half to opposite long side, without cutting all the way through; open up the steak like a book. Flatten slightly to an even thickness.  

Squeeze liquid from spinach; discard liquid. In medium-size bowl, combine spinach, cheese, bread crumbs, egg yolk, 1/4 tsp each of the garlic salt and the pepper.  

Season steak with an additional 1/2 tsp each of the garlic salt and pepper. Press filling onto steak, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides. Roll up steak to enclose filling, beginning on a short side; the grain of the meat will be running from left to right. Tuck any loose filling back into ends.  

Rub outside with oil, then sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each garlic salt and pepper.  Place seam side down and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.  Increase heat to broil and broil for 10 minutes, turning once. Let meat rest 15 minutes. Slice and serve.

This will totally impress your family and friends!
