Stuffed Flank Steak with Tomato Sauce
Family and friends are always impressed when this entree appears on the table, but it's actually quite easy. I sometimes assemble the steak roll in the morning and refrigerate before browning. The rich tomato sauce tastes great over mashed potatoes. —Nadeen Shrewberry, Hickory, North Carolina
