Random meat give away! We were given two flank steaks out of the blue and instead of doing the usual (fighting over it then eating it raw in the car park) I decided to try something different and stuff it.
I know. That initial instinctive thought was 'you're going to do whaaaaa? You're going to risk fucking up a perfectly good piece of steak?'
Most stuffed steak recipes ask for the skill of a nano-surgeon with an laser scalpel to cut open the meat and create a 'pocket' to stuff.
Having no patience whatsoever I just hammered them flat then seasoned with my salt (see below) and pepper.
- 200g goats cheese
- one chili
- fresh rosemary (without the stalk)
- half a red onion (finely chopped)
Sweat the onion in either coconut oil or butter. Add the rosemary and two crushed cloves of garlic with the chili.
When the onion has softened (but not browned) mix the contents of the frying pan in a bowl with the goats cheese thoroughly.
Add the mix into the middle of the steak and tightly wrap the steak up, securing the packages with either kitchen twine or toothpicks.
Now to feel like a culinary badass...stick a roasting dish onto the cooker with some coconut or olive oil and add and brown the steaks.
Stick them in the oven (170) for 5-10 mins until the steak is done to your liking and serve!
If you're slightly put off by the fact it looks like a giant insect cocoon leaking...er...cheese out of either end, slice it up before you serve it.
