We tend to eat beef more regularly during the summer months when I break out the grill so I like to experiment with new cuts of beef and came up with this Mediterranean Stuffed Flank Steak.

Yes, technically I know I could grill all the time for those die-hard year-round grillers out there, but there is something about trekking outside in the cold and snow that isn’t very appealing; especially with the NJ winters we’ve been having lately.

Mediterranean Stuffed Flank Steak

During one of my recent shopping trips, I purchased a flank steak to stuff myself. I only started stuffing them myself several years ago after buying them already done at the butcher. Once you get the hang of it, it’s really quite simple. You just have to make sure to roll and tie the meat tightly together. I also found that if you prepare it hours before you actually need it, then refrigerate it after cutting them down into the 6 portions, it does hold up better on the grill (very little oozing out the ends).

When rolling a flank steak, first make sure you pound it flat with a meat tenderizer until the meat is rectangular in shape and even thickness for even cooking times. Next, add your mixture on top of the steak leaving a border around the sides; then tie it up with kitchen string before cutting it into individual portions. This Mediterranean Stuffed Flank Steak was delicious and incorporated many of my favorite flavor combinations including sun dried tomatoes, Kalamata olives and feta cheese. Prepare it a day ahead, grill and enjoy!
