Sunday Dinner

Sunday Dinner Stuffed Flank Steak photo by Glen Green

I made this wonderful dinner for the Boy’s brother and the bro’s wife. We had a nice visit while breaking bread – only I didn’t serve bread – not while dieting. I might not try this on a weekday (after work) type of dinner, but it was easy to prepare and doesn’t take long to cook. Especially, if you blanche the potatoes.

They asked what they could bring. We said nothing since we are on diets, so they brought us fat-free flowers. Thanks!

Stuffed Flank Steak

INGREDIENTS
1 (1 lb) flank steak
1 (6oz) packages of  spinach, chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup fat-free feta cheese
2 tablespoons balsamic glaze
2 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper ground
Coarse sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil

 

 

PREPARATION

  1. Heat broiler with rack set 4″ from heat.
  2. Combine spinach, parsley, cheese, glaze, garlic, and red-pepper. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cut and open steak with the grain of the steak. Cut the meat almost in half horizontally.  Roll steak with mixture spread in center. Tie with kitchen string twine.
  4. Cut roll in half. Place halves, seam side down, on baking sheet, rub with oil, and season with salt and pepper.  (I serve one half, and freeze the second half for a weekday meal another time).
  5. Broil until browned, 8-10 minutes for medium-rare.
  6. Let rest (very important), loosely covered with foil, 10 minutes. Remove string, and slice steak into 1/2″rounds.

NUTRITION
240 calories per serving. Serves 4.

Rosemary Potatoes

I blanched the potatoes in rosemary and sea salt water. Then, add to skillet with more rosemary and garlic. While tossing, spray with cooking spray. I use no oil (when dieting) which gives it about 150 calories per 3/4 cup.

Tip: Use Parkay spray butter on your potatoes and steamed broccoli to cut calories.
