"Roasted red peppers and prosciutto are a nice contrast to the flavor of flank steak. Can be served hot or at room temperature, as an entree or as an appetizer. (Be sure to have string handy for tieing the steak when you roll it up for baking!)"

  6. Starting with a long side, roll the steak up jelly-roll style. Tie it with a string at 2-inch intervals, and brush with a little olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place the steak in a shallow baking pan.
