Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound bulk spicy pork sausage or uncooked chorizo
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups unseasoned croutons
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 beef flank steak (1-1/2 to 2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) picante sauce or salsa verde
  • Additional picante sauce or salsa verde, optional

Directions

Crumble sausage into a large skillet; cook for 6-8 minutes over medium heat until fully cooked. Drain. Cool to room temperature; stir in the eggs, croutons, onions and parsley.
Cut steak horizontally from a long side to within 1/2 in. of opposite side. Open steak so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. Spread with sausage mixture. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; tie with string.
In a large skillet, brown steak in oil. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Spread picante sauce over steak.
Cover and bake at 350° for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until meat is tender. Garnish with additional picante sauce if desired.
Freeze option: Cool flank steak and sauce. Freeze in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Place in a baking dish with sauce. Cover and reheat in a preheated 350° oven until a thermometer inserted in the beef reads 165°. Serve as directed.
Yield: 6-8 servings.

"Very good. I used Stuffing Mix instead of Croutons. I also used Bag Sausage instead of spicy. It came out just fine. One thing however, I would not cook it for any longer then 1-1/2 hours. It get a little dry if over cooked."
