Absolutely delicious! My husband loved it so much he ate it for breakfast the next day, along with his omelet! Easily adaptable, as well.

Elegant, tender and delicious-this is a good one for guests. Easy to make, but what an impressive dish. We will make this again and again.

I made this today. Wow was it good! I thought I had flank steak but actually had London broil so I halved the piece I had and made 2 rolls. I doubled all the ingredients. Probably should have not doubled the olive oil as I could taste it in the stuffing but it was still delicious! I will definitely make this again with actual flank steak.
