Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup dry red wine or beef broth, divided
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1 beef flank steak (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup pitted Greek olives, halved
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  • 1/2 pound bulk hot Italian sausage
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) marinara sauce
  • Hot cooked noodles

Directions

Combine 1/4 cup wine with cherries; let stand 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut steak into four serving-size pieces; pound with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness. Using 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, season both sides.
Select saute setting, and adjust for high heat, in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add onion; cook until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in bread crumbs, olives, cheese, basil, cherry mixture and remaining salt and pepper. Crumble sausage over bread crumb mixture; mix well.
Spread 1/2 cup sausage mixture over each steak piece. Roll up steaks jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; tie with kitchen string.
Select saute setting, and adjust for high heat. Add remaining oil; brown meat on all sides. Top with marinara sauce and remaining wine. Lock lid; make sure vent is closed. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high, and set time for 15 minutes. When finished cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure according to manufacturer's directions. Serve with hot cooked noodles. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
