Just give me 10 minutes...

That's right. 10 minutes. That's how long it took to prepare dinner the other night. From opening the package of meat to the dinner table- 10 minutes. Here's how:

I worked late the other night and was very hungry by the time I got home. I decided to make a version of a stuffed steak I used to see years ago. I don't think the original called for flank steak, but that's what I had, so that's what I used. Also, Joe hates blue cheese, so I nixed that as well. Turned out great.

I took a 1 pound flank steak and butterflied it:

Yes, there were a few holes, but they didn't really matter.

Then, I layered about 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese all over. On top of the cheese went fresh baby spinach. I put a few handfulls, whatever fit on top of the steak.

I would have put green onions on top, but I grow chives in my garden so I chopped up about 3 tsp. worth and added them in.Finally, I layered on 1/2 c. grated Mozzarella cheese.

I then rolled the whole thing up and used skewers to hold it in place. I rubbed Montreal Grill Steak Seasoning around the outside and sliced the steak between the skewers. I sliced them unevenly, as Joe likes his steak more rare than I do. This way, I can cook them all at once.

I used two skewers to hold together the pieces that had small holes in them. Lastly, I coated the steaks in olive oil.

They took only a few minutes to grill! I served them with corn and a quick salad.
