Guys, I’m gonna admit something so totally out of character here. There is something about the holidays that I don’t love. That something? Turkey.

And yes, I know: “Everybody knows a little turkey and some mistletoe can make the season bright…”

But not for me. After eating turkey at Thanksgiving, I’m good til next Thanksgiving. Give me another main course that’s not turkey for Christmas dinner. My other requirements for Christmas dinner main courses? Special, obviously. And super delicious, because why bother if it’s not yummy?

Enter this roasted red pepper and walnut pesto stuffed flank steak. For several years, my family has served beef on Christmas dinner. We’ve done beef tenderloin but that’s quite frankly really expensive to do for a crowd, and we’ve done this stuffed flank steak. It’s still a little pricey but not nearly as expensive as tenderloin and it stretches to feed a crowd easily.

Plus, let’s talk the flavor combination here. The beef is stuffed with a roasted red pepper and walnut stuffing. It’s so good. Garlicky, sweet from the roasted red peppers, a little fresh from the parsley. I eat spoonfuls of the filling on it’s own.

Then the outside of the steak is brushed with balsamic for some extra sweetness sort of a riff on my balsamic roast beef sandwiches. A little bit of rosemary makes it super fragrant and extra filling.

Last winning point on this one? It takes less than an hour to cook whereas turkeys take FOREVER. Are you convinced yet that you need to try this on Christmas Day?

And even better? All the standard holiday sides go with this perfectly. I serve this with either Parmesan garlic twice baked potato casserole or marscapone mashed potatoes. And you know my cranberry apple crumble makes an appearance on my Christmas table and goes so well with this Christmas stuffed flank steak.
