I’ve gotta say that Robbie nailed it with his description of me. Well…almost. I mean I do love hamburgers. And I am indeed older than him. I also do the Hot Dog Dance with him every morning when we watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. But Frozen? Eh. I think he got me confused with Mom there. Robbie knows I love my sports when it comes to watching tv. Clearly that was just a momentary brain fart! Laura and I have started keeping some of the better crafts and projects that come home from preschool, and we already have a huge bin full of keepsakes. This “All About My Father” worksheet is definitely going into the bin!
Grilled Stuffed Flank Steak
As Robbie astutely noted, I do indeed love a good hamburger. However, steaks are right up there on my list as well, and I decided to have fun with flank steak recently. We typically use flank steak for fajitas, but this time I wanted to try stuffing that flank steak with some fun ingredients. I stopped by our local Price Chopper grocery store and picked up a Certified Angus Beef ® brand flank steak, some frozen spinach and a jar of roasted red peppers. Back home, I pounded that flank steak out until it was pretty thin and then I spread the spinach and roasted red peppers on top. Roll, roll, roll. Skewer, skewer, skewer. Grill, grill, grill. Dinner done!
To Marinate or Not to Marinate?
When it comes to steaks, I typically marinate my steaks for just a couple of hours (up to 12 hours) before grilling. I also like to toss a good steak rub on ’em before they hit the grill. For this Grilled Stuffed Flank Steak, I opted for a classic steak marinade of Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce with a bit of mustard and brown sugar. Delicious! I’ve used variations of this same marinade on a variety of different steak cuts, and it’s always worked out well. So stash this recipe away for whenever you need a good steak marinade!
Certified Angus Beef® brand
As I mentioned above, I used Certified Angus Beef ® brand flank steak for this recipe. I’m a huge fan of Certified Angus Beef ® brand, and truthfully it’s the only brand of beef we buy. The brand itself doesn’t actually raise cattle. Instead, they select the best beef from farmers across the country. When Certified Angus Beef® brand was first created back in 1978, they established 10 quality standards that must be met for beef to earn the Certified Angus Beef® brand label. These quality standards, which were updated in 2007, are the reasons why I know I can count on excellent quality meat whenever I pick up a pack of Certified Angus Beef® brand beef. From ground beef to flank steaks to tenderloins at Christmas, I always know that the Certified Angus Beef® brand label means quality.
If you’ve never tried your hand at a Grilled Stuffed Flank Steak, then stop dragging your feet! Grab a Certified Angus Beef® brand flank steak, fire up the grill and get ready for some deliciousness! And make sure to invite some friends over, too. Grilling season is always more fun when friends are involved. Happy grilling!

For the Steaks
For the Marinade
- Using a small bowl, add all of the marinade ingredients except for steak; stir until well combined. Set marinade aside.
- Using a meat mallet (or a rolling pin), pound the steak to between ¼”-½”, making sure that the thickness is uniform.
- Place flank steak in a small glass bowl or gallon-sized zip-top bag. Add marinade and turn steak several times until well coated. Marinate for at least 2 hours, or up to 12 hours.
For the Filling
- If using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for 30 minutes before using.
- Using a medium bowl, add all of the filling ingredients; stir until well combined.
- Remove steak from marinade and place on a large cutting board; discard excess marinade.
- Spread filling evenly on top of steak, leaving a 1” border on all sides.
- Roll steak tightly against the grain. Using cooking twine, tie steak every 2”. Place steak on cutting board seam-side down.
- Prior to slicing the steak, measure ~1”-1½” and insert a skewer through the center. Slice that piece off from the entire rolled steak. This is an easy way to skewer the stuffed steak without losing all of the fillings! Repeat process until entire steak has been skewered and sliced off.
- Preheat grill to medium heat.
- Once hot, grill steak skewers for 4-5 minutes. Flip and continue grilling 2-6 more minutes, depending on desired doneness.
- Transfer skewers to a large plate and let rest for at least 5 minutes before removing skewers and serving. (Note: Depending on the number of pieces per skewer, you can simply serve each guest a skewer. We included 3 pieces per skewer, and it worked well.)
