2004 resolution report, week 3

this week's recipe:flank steak with kalamata olive and pine nut stuffing, served with cherry tomato confit.

turned out so-so. i was kinda in a hurry so brian could get to the dartmouth hockey game on time and did not spend enough time pounding the steak (so it wasn't very thin at all). also, it neede to be cooked for a longer amount of time, because the steak was not pounded thin enough. although brian does not mind fairly rare meat, i had a hard time eating it. the stuffing was really good tho. the cherry tomato confit was intersting, but more of something i might serve in the summer as an appetizer-y thing.

mine looked NOTHING like the photo that accompanies the link. for one thing, since my flank steak was still rather thick, it just kinda folded up like a taco around the stuffing. so when i took the strings off and sliced it, the steak just fell open and spilled stuffing all over the plate. oh well. presentation isn't everything.

ps-whenever possible, i'll try to provide the link to the recipe i tried, or something similar.
