Who ever said steak dinner had to be expensive?! This recipe is great for a romantic dinner for 2 or for an impressive dinner for a group. Flank steak is so inexpensive. On the quarterly trip to Sams or Costco, it is always on my list. You buy the pack with 2 huge pieces of steak for around $15. This can be 4 meals for the two of you or enough to feed 8-10 with this recipe.
2 large Flank steaks
salt and pepper
8 oz package goat cheese (with herbs or plain and sprinkle in italian seasoning).
sundried tomatoes dry in salad section (something under fresh tomatoes)
*you can buy them packed in oil if you want
1/4 cup hot water
wooden skewer soaked in water or metal skewers
The most important thing is to tenderize by pounding the steak till its about 1/4 inch thick. Rub generously with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Next, place tomatoes in a bowl and pour hot water to cover. Let stand 15 minutes then drain and give a rough chop.
Heat grill to medium high
Lay flank steak out and spread goat cheese lengthwise evenly on both pieces. Thickly layer spinach, then layer tomatoes. Roll up tightly like a pinwheel seam side down. Before cutting insert skewers, to make center of each slice. (Inserting them first helps hold everything together while cutting). With a very sharp knife, gently cut between each skewer. It is very important that the slices are the same thickness so they cook evenly. (My end slices are always thicker, and I like to secure the end flaps with a toothpick to keep everything from falling out).
Time to grill. Place steak on hottest part of the grill and cook 4 minutes each side. Remove skewers carefully and serve.
If you like sauce to go with recipe, reserve a couple tbs of the goatcheese and the water from the sundried tomatoes and melt together in a pan, add some chicken or beef broth and let simmer till desired thickness.
I made this recipe for supper club a while back and they loved it. I served it with crock pot mac and cheese and string beans.
