  • 1 pound flank steak, trimmed
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt plus ¼ teaspoon, divided
  • 3 tablespoons herbed goat cheese
  • ½ cup chopped jarred roasted red peppers
  • 1 cup arugula
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons grapeseed or canola oil


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Place steak on a cutting board, cover with plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or heavy skillet to an even ¼-inch thickness. Sprinkle one side with garlic powder and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Spread cheese in a 1-inch-wide strip down the middle of the steak. Top with peppers and arugula. Starting at one edge of a long side, roll the steak up tightly, tucking in the filling as you go. Tie with kitchen string at 2-inch intervals. Season with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak and cook, turning often, until browned on all sides, 3 to 6 minutes total. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 120°F for medium-rare, 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Transfer the steak to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut crosswise into 8 slices.

I don’t eat steak but the carnivores in my family loved it. Replaced to the arugula with spinach But otherwise followed the recipe. One of my son’s asked me to make it two nights later
