This yummy, elegant-looking entree is easy to make but it looks like you fussed. You can prepare it in adavance, too.


  • 1-1/2 pounds beef flank steak
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pepper, divided
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley


  1. Flatten beef to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow dish, combine the oil, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper; add steak and turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Combine the cheese, garlic, onion, parsley and remaining salt and pepper; sprinkle over steak to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; tie with kitchen string at 1-in. intervals. Insert a skewer into each piece where it is tied. Cut into 1-1/4-in. rolls.
  3. Lightly oil the grill rack. Grill over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°-done).
