After blasting biceps, opt for a healthy, protein-packed recipe like this Smoked Veggie Stuffed Flank Steak from Fit Men Cook.
1.75lb raw flank steak, trimmed with no large pieces of visible fat
- 2 cups chopped greens (kale or spinach)
- 1 bell pepper (chopped)
- 1 cup pico de gallo (tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeño)
- 1/2 cup feta or goat cheese crumble
Set grill or oven to 275 F.
In a bowl, mix together the ingredients for the stuffing. Feel free to make this dish your own by using your favorite veggies, such as zucchini/squash, cabbage and even mushrooms. Instead of pico de gallo, try sun-dried tomatoes to completely change the flavors of this dish.
Make the flank steak thinner by cutting it in half so that it’s easier to roll and stuff. If necessary, use a food mallet to pound the flank steak and thin it out even more. Stuff the flank steak with the veggie mixture, then roll it up. If you’re using a grill, place the flank on the grill with the flap (i.e., open end) facing down, so that the steak bakes closed. If you’re using an oven, place the flank on a baking sheet with the flap facing down as well.
Grill, smoke or bake for about 30 minutes, flipping halfway through. Enjoy with roasted red potatoes (seasoned with rosemary, garlic, sea salt and pepper).
