Rolled Flank Steak

I've made this recipe for my BF and it got rave reviews. I don't like the taste of beef so I'll just have to trust him on that one! Course he's asked for it a couple times so it must be good! I served it with Baked Polenta Fries and Spinach Souffle.

Rolled Flank Steak
Adapted from Everyday Food
Serves 4 Prep Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 1 hour 40 minutes

1-½ pounds flank steak
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2oz shredded mozzarella cheese (½ cup)
4 scallions, sliced (1/3 cup)
2 ounces (¼ cup) roasted red peppers, cut into thin strips
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450° with rack in center. Between two sheets of plastic wrap, pound steak to 1/2-inch thickness with a meat mallet or heavy skillet. Using a sharp knife, score the steak on one side in a cross-hatched pattern. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and garlic. Marinate at least 20 minutes or up to overnight.

Remove steak from marinade. Lay steak on cutting board, scored side down, with a short end facing edge of work surface. Cover steak with cheese, scallions, and peppers, leaving 1/2-inch border on the long sides and 2-inch border at the far short end. Season with salt and pepper. Starting from closest side, roll up tightly. Using kitchen twine, tie steak crosswise. Season with salt and pepper.

Place, seam side down in a baking dish or on a rimmed baking sheet, and roast until juices run clear, 35 to 40 minutes for medium rare. Let rest 10 minutes, and remove string before slicing.
