Flank Steak with Gorgonzola Cheese

Flank Steak with Gorgonzola Cheese

This is one of my favorites! This is a great easy recipe for when you are entertaining .
Go fire up the grill, invite some great friends, pour a glass of wine and have a fun night of entertaining!



Ingredients:

1 packet or 2-3 Tbsp McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning
Diced Garlic
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
One Loaf French Bread
Flank Steak
1 Onion
2-3 Tomatoes
Gorgonzola Cheese



Rub a generous amount of Montreal Steak seasoning and chopped garlic on both sides of flank steak. Drizzle 1Tbsp of Olive oil & Balsamic Vinegar on the flank steak.
Preheat grill to Medium High.



While grill is preheating:

Slice french bread on the diagonal
(culinary trick: cutting the bread on the diagonal is know as a tranche cut and gives the illusion of a larger portion. This trick is also used with fish, too.)
Drizzle olive oil on each slice of bread

Slice Onion and Tomato into 1/2" thick slices for easy grilling.
Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and chopped garlic
(add the amount of seasoning to your taste buds. we tend to like alot of garlic, so I didn't list an amount)


Grill:
french bread slices grill  20-30 seconds on each side
Onion grill 5 minutes on each side
Tomato grill 2 minutes on each side
Flank steak grill 8-10minutes on each side for medium rare

After removing the flank steak from the grill allow it to rest for 10 minutes. This allows the juices in the meat to be redistributed through out the entire meat. Cut the flank steak into quarter inch slices on a 45 degree angle.

Rough chop Onion and Tomato

Assembly:
French Bread on the boottom
Top with flank steack slices
add diced onion and tomato
sprinkle top with gorgonzola cheese



Ready for your guests with minmal mess in the kitchen!
Tony had everything prepped and ready for the grill before our guest arrived.
All he needed to do was fire up the grill when they arrived.
We served the flank steak with a side salad and a good bottle of Red wine!
