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
1 1/2 pounds flank steak, butterflied
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
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 grain 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
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.
