I found this recipe in Chill magazine. Originally written by Ted Reader and tweaked for what I had on hand. This is tremendous; it turned out wonderfully! My family absolutely devoured and enjoyed every bite.
- 1 (2 -3 lb) flank steaks
- 1 (12 ounce) bottle brown ale
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon malt vinegar
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 poblano chiles or 2 sweet peppers
- 1 leek
- 4 ounces shaved ham
- 4 ounces monterey jack cheese
- 1⁄2 teaspoon coarse salt
- Using a sharp knife, slice the flank steak into two thin sheets of meat and pound flat using a meat mallet, creating two 8" x 12" rectangles.
- Mix together the ale, parsley, salt, chili flakes, pepper, and malt vinegar to make the marinade.
- Place the steak and marinade in a seal-able plastic bag and marinate overnight, turning a few times.
- After the marination is complete and you are ready to cook, slice the peppers and leek.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil.
- Saute the garlic, peppers and leek for 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat.
- Preheat BBQ to 450 degrees F.
- Remove the steak rectangles from the marinade and allow the excess liquid to run off.
- Cover each rectangle with shaved ham, then cheese, then the pepper and leek mixture.
- Roll each rectangle along the long side and secure in a roll using butcher's twine.
- Season with coarse salt.
- Sear the meat on the grill for about two minutes per side for a total of eight minutes.
- Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and move steak off to the side of the main heat source.
- Continue to cook for about 5 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F (or to your liking).
- Remove from heat and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
- Cut into slices and serve.
