Spinach and Feta Flank Steak

While this dish may look difficult, it’s actually very easy to do. Fancy spirals of flavor are perfect for holiday meals but easy enough for a weeknight dinner. —Josh Carter, Birmingham, Alabama

    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 beef flank steak (1-1/2 to 2 pounds)
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 package (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoons snipped fresh dill
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  • Cut steak horizontally from a long side to within 1/2 in. of opposite side. Open steak so it lies flat; flatten to 1/4-in. thickness.
  • Combine the spinach, cheese, parsley, dill and onions. Spread over steak to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; tie with kitchen string. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • In a large skillet, brown meat in oil on all sides; transfer to the greased rack of a shallow roasting pan. Bake at 400° until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 15 minutes. To serve, remove string; slice into 1-in.-thick slices.
