Supper tonight: Stuffed Flank Steak
#5
  Re: (...)



I've made this before but never followed the recipe, usually I do mushrooms and cheese, spinach and cheese w/some sort of wine sauce. Thought I'd actualy do the real thing start to finish for a change, w/the Bravas Potatoes (been doing these for at least 25 yrs and didn't know they had a name) and the Chimichurri sauce.

Only change: no cilantro so used more parsley and some fresh oregano.

I cooked to 140 as recommended and it was a little too cooked for me, but the kids will like that. As far as flavor goes, it was good, but w/out the sauce it would be boring. I think I'd use a stronger cheese, the fontina was too mild and sort of faded into the steak.

All in all, it was good but not great. Next time I'll go back to my way, sauteed mushrooms, fresh herbs and Swiss cheese.

After I got it rolled and tied, I realized it wouldn't fit into my largest frying pan (or even a half pan) so I had to bend it a bit. That made some cheese leak out, but that wasn't a problem. Good thing The Picky One wasn't home, he would have been photographing me trying to squeeze this 2# rolled monster into a 12" frying pan.

And that's my dinner. Hopefully someone will roll in shortly to eat it!

"Bravas Potatoes (been doing these for at least 25 yrs and didn't know they had a name)" - me too, pj. I've just always called them roasted potatoes (except I've never covered them during the roasting)

looks tasty - but I like your idea of a stronger cheese.
