Nancy J. Patrykus


This is my first attempt to make & cook a rolled flank steak.
Having purchased a one pound package flank steak.
Then combining 3 recipes...
and adding my own touch I put together a quick and easy stove top version.
Years ago, when my oven stopped working,I had cooked T-Bones on top the stove and they turned out great.
So why not try it with a stuffed flank steak. With out a hot oven.
Here is the resulting picture,
with my recipe, and 2 old kitchen tips for you to enjoy.
This recipe can be doubled for a family size. 5/17/12

15 Min


25 Min


Stove Top


1 lb
beef flank steak,then tenderized
1/2 tsp
1/8 tsp
****** stuffing ingredients:
1 clove
garlic, minced
small bunch
fresh spinach, lightly steamed....** my son gave me some from his garden...yum!
small pkg
mozzarella cheese
olive oil
kitchen twine
tub of cream cheese with chives

Directions Step-By-Step

Have the butcher score your steak.Or you can take it home and tenderizer it yourself with a meat hammer.

TIP:*******Grandma used pound it with the side of a saucer. Up and down, many times. In the older times we learned to "make do! "Hey.. It worked!
Sprinkle the steak with salt & pepper.
Place a nice thick layer of cleaned fresh spinach on top of the pounded out steak followed with a few slices of mozzarella cheese,another layer of spinach, and slather on some cream cheese with chives, all to your liking.
Using both of your hands tightly roll the meat into a long log.
Tie with kitchen twine at 2-2/12 inch intervals.

TIP:******..... in the olden days, we used to keep our twine in a 1/2 of a coconut shell, with a hole punched out to put the ball of twine thru. and hung on the kitchen wall. always ready!

Slice between the twine at about 2 inch intervals. So the twine is in the middle of you'r cut rolls.
Season again with salt & pepper.
In a skillet with a little olive oil, lightly brown the chopped garlic. Remove the garlic.
Add the rolls to the skillet and sear over medium heat 2-3 minutes each side. Turn heat to med-low.
Cover and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes on each side. Or done to your liking.
After you remove the meat, you can add a little water, and use to make a delishes gravy,for some mashed potatoes...maybe???
