Stuffed Flank Steak


Every family has its secrets.

Apparently my family also has “secret” recipes, some of which I am giving away on this blog. Shame on me.

I say it’s good food, so why not share? Like a lot of us, my mom likes to try new foods and recipes often, so it’s only the really great (and relatively simple) recipes that have become regulars in my family. If you’ve been reading this blog, so far this includes German pancakes and plum cake.

This delectable grilled steak recipe is from a college friend of my mom’s, so it goes waaaaay back. You gotta grill this steak. No pan searing and finishing in the oven, so that makes this dish summer food, unless you are ok braving bad winter weather.

The unusual combination of aromatic nutmeg, salty soy sauce and sweet pickle sounds weird, but is really delicious. The more stuffing (studded with crunchy almonds) you get with each slice of meat, the better. If you don’t have time to marinate the meat overnight, you may want to season the stuffing and steaks with a little salt and pepper before grilling.

Stuffed Flank Steak
-Serves 6 hungry people -

2 flank steaks (1.5 lbs each)
½ c red wine
1/8 c olive oil
¼ c soy sauce
1 tsp nutmeg (freshly ground is best)

Mix and marinate overnight in a Ziploc bag (turning over a few times) or as long as possible.

1 ½ c minced green pepper
2 onions minced (about 2 cups)
1 c minced celery
¼ c blanched almonds (chopped or slivered)
3 T butter
4 c  white bread (like Italian or French bread – don’t use Wonder Bread here!), cut into 1” chunks
2 T sweet relish

Sauté onion, pepper, and celery over medium-high heat in the butter until onions are translucent. Turn off the heat and add the remaining stuffing ingredients (almonds, bread, relish). Stir well to coat bread. Cool slightly.

Carefully cut a pocket into each steak along the long edge, careful to not cut through the top, bottom, or opposite side. Stuff and skewer closed. Grill 10-12 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and let rest 10 minutes. Serve sliced across the diagonal.
