Recipe: Gorgonzola-Stuffed Steak Roll-Ups

Looking for a delicious and fancy, yet relatively-easy-to-make dinner? The Kitchn has created it in their Gorgonzola-Stuffed Steak Roll-Ups!

This meal wasn’t exactly what I expected to find in my search for a healthy meal (and it’s not exactly light fare at 11 Smart Points). But, how could I resist? It’s pretty AND has melted cheese!

Gorgonzola-Stuffed Steak Roll-Ups

yields 4

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds flank steak, butterflied

Kosher salt

Freshly ground pepper

1 (12-ounce) jar of fire-roasted red peppers, drained and coarsely chopped

1 cup packed arugula

4 ounces gorgonzola cheese

1 Tbsp olive oil

Kitchen twine

Toothpicks

Directions

Step 1: Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Lay the steak on the cutting board with the graisteak-rollups1n running left to right. Season both side with salt and pepper.

Step 3: Spread the roasted red peppers over the steak. Repeat with the arugula and then the gorgonzola.

Step 4: Roll the steak up tightly, starting with the bottom so you are rolling away from
yourself.

Step 5: Place the roll seam-side down and tie it tightly with kitchen twine (put about 1 1/2 inches between each tie). Secure any loose spots with toothpicks.

Step 6: Cut the roll cross-wise into 4 pieces.

Step 7: Heat the olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet (or anything that can move from stove-top to oven) until shimmering.

Step 8: Add the steaks cut-side down until browned (about 2 minutes). Then, flip and sear the other side for 2 more minutes.

Step 9: Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until a meat thermometer reads 120 degrees for rare or 130 degrees for medium (about 10-15 minutes).

Step 10: Move the steak to a plate and let it sit for 5 minutes before removing the twine and the  toothpicks.
