    Nothing that will knock your socks off, but it is indeed a good solid recipe. Because my tiny apartment has no decent ventilation in the kitchen, I decided to broil the flank steak instead of cooking it on the stove top. For a 1 lb. flank steak, four minutes per side produced a flank steak that, to my tastes, was slightly over cooked, basically a solid medium with the edges more towards medium well. Next time I'll go with three minutes per side with the tintent of hitting medium rare.

    I'm not usually a pesto fan but I really liked this one, probably because I love cilantro so much. I cooked the steak a little longer because it wasn't done enough for me but it was perfect for my husband so I gave him the middle part and threw the ends back in the pan for me. Served it with the quick mashed potatoes and it was a great dinner.

    Tasty and easy! Couldn't get my teenager to eat it (no spinach, nothing chewy like steak) but DH and I thought it was perfect. We grilled the steak on the Traeger grill. If I changed a thing, it would be to season the meat a bit more and maybe add a bit of heat. I did add some finely shredded Asiago cheese to the spinach before serving. We also had some roasted garlic couscous on the side.
