Flank Steak Roll


This recipe comes from The Best of Clean Eating Cookbook
(not the best picture) 

This is a really delicious way to do something unique, yet easy with Flank Steak. 

You will need: 
Olive oil cooking spray
1/4 c. whole wheat panko crumbs (these are not on 21 day fix so you can make your own bread crumbs using whole wheat bread dried out and crumbled.) 
1 Tablespoon pine nuts ( pine nuts are not on 21 Day Fix so feel free to use pistachios or another nut that is listed) 
2 tsp of red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 (1 lb) flank steak, trim off visible fat
3 oz. spinach or arugula

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a cooking rack on a baking pan and coat with cooking spray. 

In a small bowl combine the bread crumbs, nuts, vinegar, garlic, salt and set aside. 

Next you want to cut the flank steak in half lengthwise. To do this lay it flat and slice it parallel to the work surface. This will make it open up like a book. (don't slice all the way through the end, you want it to stay attached) 

Lay the meat open and sprinkle it with the panko mixture. (don't place mixture all the way to the edges of the meat) Add spincah over the top of it. Start from one end and begin to roll the meat gently pressing down on the spinach, so the roll is tight. You can tie the meat if you want or just place it seam side down on the baking rack. Salt the outside of the roast. 

Bake for 40 minutes. Once it comes out, cover it in tinfoil and let it rest for 10 minutes. Remove foil and cut into slices. 

I served this with a sweet potato and crispy broccoli. 

For 21 Day Fix, I would count this just as 1 RED. There is not enough of the panko nut mixture to count as a container or even half of one. Same for the spinach. 
If someone thinks differently please let me know, I am always up for suggestions. 

(I will post pictures of the process when I make this again)
