I love this recipe. The second time I made it I added shredded parmesan cheese to it. I also made the chopped parsley into a pesto using 2 tablespoons olive oil with salt and pepper.

I am not rating this recipe bc I have not made it yet. Upon reading the reviews, most of you are adding "pesto". Can someone tell me what kind of pesto are being used since there are different kinds of pesto out there? TY.

This was a nice way to dress up flank steak, and is a good basic recipe for "fine-tuning" to meet your personal tastes. My changes: I didn't have tenderizer, so I decided to marinade for 1.5 hours in 1Tbs red wine vinegar, 1/4 cup canola oil, and 4 big cloves chopped garlic. In addition to the bacon, I added shredded parmesan and thick-sliced mushrooms. I used regular salt instead of seasoned salt, and no garlic powder. I also soaked the toothpicks to prevent burning. Next time I'm going to add either cooked rice or barley, and roasted red peppers.

Great idea! I had thin serloin steaks that had to be used. I seasoned the steaks, scored them, then spread on pesto, sprinkled with grated parmesean, laid a strip of bacon top and rolled up. I secured with a toothpick. My family loved this. A new twist on steaks on the grill!

Sounds delicious...will give it a try next time li'l brother decides to grill...and in reply to NYDee...yes, people DO still eat like this...flank steak may be a "cheap" cut of beef, but it's very lean, (it's the same cut used for fajitas) and the one and 1/4 slices of bacon per serving is not going to do any major damage, health-wise...I see a cardiologist regularly and he says it's perfectly fine to eat bacon, red meat, eggs, etc. in moderation...he's a top-notch doctor, I trust his judgment...I'll enjoy this...and leave the "food snobs" to their own vices....

Great recipe! I took the advice and used parmasean cheese and pesto. This dish tastes like it would be featured in an upscale resteraunt. Bacon and Steak!!! How can you go wrong?

to Joy, I have made this recipe 4 times and have used both basil and tarragon pesto (homemade with lots of parmesan cheese). The basil pesto seems to work the best. I do omit the tenderizer and use beer to marinate the steak over night. Does a great job of tenderizing. I also leave out the parsley because of the pesto. Skirt steak works also but the low cost of flank makes an economical meal and is also fun to work with.

I followed others suggestion of adding a thin layer of pesto and I think it made the dish. It would probably still be good without it, but it definitely gave it an extra splash of flavor. Tasted like something you'd have in a fine restaurant. I used the bacon that comes pre-cooked which helped cut down on prep time and clean up. Only complaint would be it was a bit salty -- maybe cut back on the salt next time.
