Absolutely delicious! My hubby doesn't like blue cheese quite like I do, so I'll try 1/4 cup next time. I'd also like to try it with diced mushrooms in the onion/garlic/spinach combo. Yum - can't wait till next time!

Directions See How It's Made
- Mix together the marinade ingredients. Place in a resealable plastic bag with the steak. Marinate for 1-2 hours in refrigerator.
- In a large skillet, cook bacon. Season with pepper for added flavor. Once crisp remove bacon but leave bacon fat in skillet.
- Heat to medium and add onion and garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add the beer and the spinach. Season with salt to taste and cook for 1-2 more minutes.
- Add blue cheese, panko crumbs, and bacon to the mixture. Remove from heat and mix well.
- Spread warm mixture into the middle of the flank steak, drained from the marinade. Roll and tie using kitchen twine. Place the steak roll in a roasting pan and season the outside again with salt and pepper to your liking.
- Roast in a 350 degree oven until cooked to your liking.
- Serve with a basic vegetable or mashed potatoes.
- This is also great as a leftover in sandwiches with a fresh sourdough bread.
