Yes, you read it right. Espresso coffee was used to make this delicious stuffed Flank Steak! You are going to want to make this!
While watching television one day I saw an Italian Chef making a stuffed flank steak. Never having made one before I was very intrigued. She lost me when she started putting raisins and nuts in the stuffing. However, the idea of making a stuffed flank steak stuck with me, and I decided to play!
I seasoned the meat with salt and pepper and put it to the side.
Now for the stuffing!
I chopped up some fresh spinach and a handful of fresh parsley. To that I added some goat cheese, freshly grated parmesan cheese, and a little clove of garlic.
I spread the spinach mixture on the meat and then added the chopped mushrooms.
Then I tied it up as best I could.
I let the meat rest for 15 minutes and then sliced it and served it with the mushroom sauce and a side of ricotta cavatelli that was tossed with the sauce from the meat.
It was a hit! Everyone loved the flavor! The espresso coffee added a hint of smokiness, you've got to try it to believe it!
