Stuffed Flank Steak
Our Full Blood and or American Wagyu Beef stands on its own. Typically, we advocate a little salt, a little pepper, and a grill or a nice cast iron skillet to get the job done. Occasionally, we have been known to trade in the t-shirt for a pearl button-up and show off a little. A simply prepared stuffed Flank Steak is a perfect pizazz to a weekend get-together with friends or family.
