Gorgonzola-Stuffed London Broil
There I was wandering around the kitchen trying to figure out what I was going to make for dinner. I wasn't worried because I'm a whiz at coming up with meals on the fly and making awesome food with whatever I happen to have on hand.
In the fridge I scrounged up Gorgonzola cheese, a London broil steak, and an ever present package of bacon. Well, that looks like that could be something amazing. And it was!
Gorgonzola-Stuffed Flank Steak
1 1 1/2- To 2 1/2-Pound London Broil
1/2 Pound Crumbled Gorgonzola or Blue Cheese
1/4 Cup Seasoned Bread Crumbs
Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 Pound Bacon
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Select a thick steak. With a sharp knife, slice the steak lengthwise into four strips. Pound the meat with a mallet (I use an empty wine bottle) to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Set aside.
Sprinkle cheese and bread crumbs evenly over the steak, leaving a 1-inch border along the edge farthest from you.
Beginning with the side nearest you., roll up the steak, gently pressing on the filling.
Then lay the roll on three slices of bacon, or as many as it takes to cover the meat, and roll up.
Place the rolls in a baking dish, seam side down.
Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Place in the oven and roast for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Serve with potatoes or rice.
