Howdy! We celebrated a special occasion last night – Jav decided to quit his job and start his own business Arerra Interactive! Today was his first day being his own boss. I am so proud of him and know he will be extremely successful in his new venture. However, if it doesn’t work out he might have a successful career in modeling.
To commemorate the occasion, I made some beef and potatoes. Jav is mostly a fan of french fries and burgers (Jack in the Box, McDonalds, Burger King) and likes to spend his day of Sabbath partaking in a tradition called “Gluttony Sunday” where he generally visits all three of these fast food joints before noon.
However, this Sunday, I decided to make a stuffed flank steak with roasted fingerling potatoes. Aren’t fingerling potatoes the cutest? They are so good too!
Their flavor is just a tad sweet and creamy. This is a very simple meal that makes it look like you spent a lot of time slaving away in the kitchen.
Stuffed Flank Steak
1.5-2lbs of Flank Steak
¼ Cup Soy Sauce
2 Cloves Garlic Chopped

6 Strips of Good Quality Bacon
2 Cups Fresh Spinach

Roll together tightly.
Use toothpicks or skewers to hold together ever two inches.
Slice into two inch rolls.
Grill over medium heat for 10-15 minutes until done.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Crush garlic – Remember this old thing, the garlic crusher? I love this tool.
Mix garlic, oil, lemon juice, rosemary and salt and pepper together in small bowl.
Pour mixture over potatoes in a roasting pan.
Make sure potatoes are evenly covered. Roast for 20-25 minutes until brown and yummy.
