Flank Steak Crostini Recipe

Flank Steak Crostini Recipe

This recipe is perfect for gatherings, holidays, or as a special Sunday football snack. My kids love it and so do my friends and family. You can substitute butter for the olive oil, or any kind of steak for the flank steak. —Donna Evaro, Casper, Wyoming
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Grill: 15 min. YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 beef flank steak (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 French bread baguette (10-1/2 ounces), cut into 36 slices
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh portobello mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Grill beef, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until a meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 5 minutes. Thinly slice across the grain.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the oil, garlic and basil; brush over baguette slices. Place on baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes. Top with mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. Bake 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
