Flank Steak with Stuffed Mushrooms and Escarole Salad
I also took the marinating juices and cooked them down to make a sauce for the steak. This turned out very tasty and helped add some moisture to the steak.
For the stuffed crimini mushrooms, I just made a quick mixture of cream cheese, garlic, salt, pepper and some chopped mushroom stems. These were baked in the oven until hot and were definitely the highlight of tonight's dinner.
I made a simple salad of escarole, oranges, carrots and apples. The dressing was just simply the juice squeezed from the remaining orange once the segments were cut out. It was a very light, refreshing salad, that I am quite pleased with.
All in all, I'd say that this meal was pretty good, I just think that I proved once again, that I need some more practice cooking red meat.
