How long will Watercress and Feta Stuffed Flank last for?

A stuffed flank steak will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. Store the meal in shallow, airtight containers for optimum freshness. 

 

Can Watercress and Feta Stuffed Flank Steak be frozen?

Yes, you can freeze a flank steak after it’s cooked. If you use previously frozen flank steak that you thawed out, store leftovers in the fridge, not the freezer. If you’re cooking with fresh steak and want to freeze leftovers, store them in freezer-friendly airtight containers or wrapped up tight in aluminum foil and placed in a labeled freezer bag. The steak and stuffing are freezer-friendly because we cook them together, although the feta cheese may lose some of its flavor.

Prepare to make the stuffing by heating 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a cast-iron skillet. Sauté watercress and garlic for two minutes and transfer into a medium mixing bowl to add feta, dill, and thyme. 
  2. Now, it’s time to spread the stuffing onto the steak. Evenly spread the feta, watercress, and garlic mixture on the flank steak. Then roll it up and use some twine to hold the steak and stuffing together. Cook and sear the stuffed flank steak in a cast-iron pan with olive oil. Sear the steak first before placing it in the oven to cook thoroughly. 
  3. Once the steak finishes, let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing and dividing it into meal prep containers with the rice and salad.

Other tips for making Watercress and Feta Stuffed Flank Steak:

  • Flatten the flank steak before spreading the stuffing onto it. A flattened steak guarantees even slices. To flatten the steak, lay the meat on plastic wrap and use a mallet or heavy-bottom pan to smack the meat flat. 

 

  • When rolling the steak, tie a piece of twine to wrap every 1.5 inches. 

 

  • We give you sear and oven cooking instructions, but you can cook the stuffed flank steak on your grill at 425 to 450 degrees. 

 

  • Use a meat thermometer to test the doneness of your stuffed flank steak. The internal temperature for medium-rare is from 130 to 135 degrees. 

 

  • For easy meal prepping, cook your brown rice ahead of time. You can also use cauliflower rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb. flank steak
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 4 cups watercress
  • 2 oz. feta cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped dill
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme

For Serving

  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Allow steak to come to room temperature for 30 minutes. Slice steak through the side, stopping 1/2 inch before cutting through. Open steak up to create 1 long thin sheet 1/4-1/2 inch in thickness. Blot dry with a paper towel and season steak on both sides with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat in a cast-iron pan. Add watercress and garlic. Sauté for 2 minutes. Transfer garlic and watercress to a medium mixing bowl and add feta, dill and thyme. Stir well.
  • Spread mixture evenly on steak leaving 1 inch around the edges. Roll the steak from the longest side away from you to create a log. Use 3-4 pieces of kitchen twine to secure the steak.
  • Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a cast-iron pan for 2 minutes. Sear steak for 6 minutes, turning every 2 minutes for even browning. Transfer pan to oven and bake for 20-25 minutes (for medium-rare) or until the desired doneness. Rest steak at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  • While steak is cooking, divide brown rice between 4 small compartments of MPOF white containers. Stir together ingredients for salad and divide between the remaining 4 small compartments. Remove twine from steak and slice into 8 slices. Place 2 slices in each of the large compartments.
  • To Reheat: Place slices of stuffed flank steak on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake at 325ºF for 12-15 minutes.
