Ingredients
  • 1   
    flank steak (1 1/2 to 2 pounds)
  • 1   package 
    frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1/2  cup 
    crumbled blue cheese
  • 1   jar 
    (7 ounces) roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
  • 2   tablespoons 
    seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1   
    egg yolk
  • 3/4  teaspoon 
    garlic salt
  • 3/4  teaspoon 
    ground black pepper
  • 1   tablespoon 
    olive oil
Directions
1.
Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
2.
Lay steak on work surface. Holding sharp knife parallel to work surface and starting at a long side, slice flank steak in half to opposite long side, without cutting all the way through; open up the steak like a book. Flatten slightly to an even thickness.
3.
Squeeze liquid from spinach; discard liquid. In medium-size bowl, combine spinach, cheese, peppers, bread crumbs, egg yolk, 1/4 teaspoon each of the garlic salt and the pepper.
4.
Season steak with an additional 1/4 teaspoon each of the garlic salt and pepper. Press filling onto steak, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides. Roll up steak to enclose filling, beginning on a short side; the grain of the meat will be running from left to right. Tuck any loose filling back into ends.
5.
Tie steak with cotton twine at 2-inch intervals to secure. Rub outside with oil, then sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each garlic salt and pepper.
6.
Roast at 425 degrees F for 35 minutes, then increase heat to broil and broil for 10 minutes, turning once. Let meat rest 15 minutes. Remove twine, slice and serve.
