Stuffed Steak

olive oil spray

1 garlic clove, crushed

1/2 cup diced shallots

1/4 cup chopped parsley

2 tablespoons of panko breadcrumbs

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

3/4 pound grass-fed strip loin (about 1 1/2 inch thick)

Heat the grill to medium-high. Heat a pan over medium-high heat and spray with olive oil spray. Add the garlic and shallots. Sauté for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove to a mixing bowl. Add the parsley and breadcrumbs to the bowl. Mix the ingredients together. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove the visible fat from the steak and slit it about 1 inch apart on each side to form pockets for the stuffing. The slits should be about 1/2 inch deep and cover the width of the steak. With the tip of a knife or a small spoon, stuff the steak. Reserve the rest of the stuffing. Spray the steak on both sides with olive oil spray, and place on a hot grill for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and grill 4 to 5 minutes. A meat thermometer should read 125 degrees for a rare, 145 degrees for a medium rare. Grill a little longer if necessary. Remove to a cutting board and let rest. Brown the rest of the stuffing in the pan used to brown the garlic and shallots. Cut the steak into slices and divide between two plates. Pour the sautéed stuffing on top.
