Flank Steak Roulade

Featured On:

 Ms. enPlace Mrs Happy Homemaker Miz Helen’s Country Cottage

This is one of those meals where everyone will "ooohhh" and "ahhhh" over the wonderful presentations.  However, it can be your little secret on how easy this dish is to prepare.  Flank Steak Roulade basically means rolled flank steak.  The beauty of this recipe is you can use whatever you want inside the "stuffing".  Blue cheese and bacon, swiss cheese and mushrooms, roasted red peppers, artichokes, and really anything that would go good with steak.

I decided to do a cheesy spinach and tomato roulade.  Yum!  And as you can see the options are endless!  It really is a beautiful dish that is simple to make and on the table in no time.  You can also prepare everything ahead of time and then just pop it in the oven when you get home.






Flank Steak Roulade
1-1/2 to 2 lbs Flank Steak, butterflied (here's a video to help with this) or pounded out to 1/4 in thickness
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 TBS Minced Garlic
1/4 cup Sun Dried Tomatoes, roughly chopped
5-6 Basil Leaves, chopped
1/4 cup Shredded Mozzarella
1-2 handfuls of Baby Spinach

  1. Season steak with salt and pepper then rub garlic onto steak
  2. Layer sun dried tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and baby spinach over steak leaving about 1/2 inch from edges
  3. Tightly roll steak and secure with toothpicks or tie with butcher's twine (here's a video to help with that)
  4. Place steak in a baking dish and bake for about 20-35 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven until the steak is prepared to your liking
  5. Place steak on a platter and tent with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes 
  6. When ready to serve slice into 1" slices and enjoy :)
I rounded out the meal with some homemade mashed potatoes and maple dill carrots.  Get creative and make your own roulade.  I guarantee this will become an easy dish that not only tastes great, but looks beautiful!

    1. They are wonderful :) I love the colors too. And the best part is you can add whatever you like. I think roasted red peppers would be really good, but no one else in my family would agree.
