Flank Steak

Courtesy of Howard and Trudy Smith we give you a flank steak recipe. The Smiths originally paired this recipe with our 2006 Petite Sirah. We find this recipe has stood the test of time and continues to be delicious with a good Petite Sirah, especially the 2013 vintage.

1 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Romano or Parmesan Cheese
2 Tbsp finely chopped parsley
3/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp milk
1 (1 lb.) flank steak, tenderized and cut into 4 pieces
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup dry Marsala

Combine bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper; mix well. Combine beaten eggs with milk. Dip meat in egg mixture then bread mixture. Set aside and cook garlic in oil until fragrant. Remove garlic. Brown meat slowly in seasoned oil. When well browned, lower heat and add Marsala. Cover and simmer 30 minutes or until tender. Serves four with mashed potatoes and Petite Sirah.
