Fancy Flank Steak for dinner

Fancy Flank Steak  425°  serves 6 to 8

Steak Prep

  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1 leek, white and light green parts finely sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1  2 to 2 ½ pound tenderized flank steak (butcher will tenderize for you)
  • ½ pound of sliced provolone cheese
  • 2 red bell peppers roasted OR 1 jar roasted red peppers

Crust

  • ¾ cup breadcrumbs – plain
  • 3 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 3 tablespoons chopped flat leafed parsley
  • 3 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon restaurant ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 425°.

Saute the leeks and garlic till tender with light olive oil.   Set aside and cool.  Add the chopped parsley when cooled.

Lay your tenderized steak on a cutting board stretching it to make a rectangle.  Salt and pepper the steak.  Leaving an inch boarder around the steak layer the drained roasted peppers first.  The provolone cheese second and the leeks, garlic and parsley third.

Roll the steak tightly tucking in any jumpers.  With butchers twine tie in four spots and then taking the twin wrap length wise around the roast.  Secure the twine.  Place on a rack that sits on your foil lined roasting pan.  (I turn the rack upside down.)

Make your Tuscan Crust by mixing all the ingredients.  Brush the roast with light olive oil.  Pat the mixture all over the roast and snug it up to the roast as it slides down.

In the oven for 45 minutes or until  130 160° internal temperature.  When completed remove from oven, tent with foil for 15 minutes to cool.  Move to a cutting board and remove the twine with kitchen shears.  Slice serving piece about 3/4 inch in size.

Prepare for the compliments on the taste of this extraordinary special dinner.
