FLANK STEAK,ROLLED & STUFFED..a stove top recipe

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

How to Make FLANK STEAK,ROLLED & STUFFED..a stove top recipe


  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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???
