    NICK SUHADOLNIK's Note:

    I'm always looking for great recipes and experiment alot. Every once in awhile, I discover one that just cries out to be shared. The following is just such a recipe. It really is very easy, but the flavor and presentation is quite "gourmet". My wife and I had it for dinner last night with nothing more than a side dish of herbed and garlic scalloped potatoes and a nice bottle of Pinot Noir. It was YUMMY!!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Place the thawed spinach in the center of a kitchen towel. Holding the towel over the sink, twist it to squeeze excess water out of the spinach.
    3. 3
      Open the towel and place the spinach in a food processor, along with the pine nuts, blue cheese, and garlic. Pulse until the ingredients form a thick paste.
    4. 4
      Place the flank steak flat on a work surface and using your fingers and/or a silicone spatula, spread the spinach and cheese mixture evenly over the entire steak.
    5. 5
      Roll the steak into a cylinder and, using kitchen twine, tie the roll securely about every two inches.
    6. 6
      Mix one tablespoons olive oil with seasoning salt, pepper and liquid smoke. Brush mixture over the whole outer surface of the steak roll.
    7. 7
      In a large, deep skillet over medium-high, heat the remaining oil. Add the steak roll and sear one side for about 1 1/2 minutes. Use tongs to rotate the roll 1/4 turn, searing for another 1 1/2 minutes. Continue until all sides are seared.
    8. 8
      Transfer the roll to a rack, place on a baking sheet or pan and place in oven to roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the roll reads 140 degrees F.
    9. 9
      Remove from oven, let stand for 5 minutes. Slice, serve, and enjoy!

      We found some problems with cooking flank steak this way. Without a marinade, it became pretty tough. I also thought it needed more spinach- the blue cheese was a bit overpowering. All in all, I think the filling would be fantastic as smear over a grilled sirloin or something.
