Grilled flank steak and boursin cheese



Grilled flank steak, boursin cheese and a crispy soft baguette. The perfect combination for a spring lunch or dinner. Two years ago I catered and planned a party for 40 for a friends 50th birthday party. We decided on a casual lunch and I created this sandwich.

Both men and women love it, creamy flavorful cheese and grilled tender flank steak, plus a little baby greens and a slice of avocado. So delicious!!

Grilled flank steak and boursin cheese sandwich

*

1 flank steak

salt and pepper

1 tsp. herbs de provence

1 package boursin cheese ( purchase at local cheese counter or deli)

1 avocado sliced

1 cup baby greens

1 fresh baguette sliced in half

*

Apply salt/pepper and herbs de provence to both sides of the flank steak, grill steak 5 minutes each side. Remove and let set on counter covered for 5 minutes. Slice steak into thin slices against the grain.

Warm baguette in oven until crisp. Slice in half. Spread a layer of boursin cheese on baguette, layer with slices of steak and avocado. Top with baby greens.

Enjoy!!!

Your food is great and I am sorry to always comment on the photography. But really beautiful stuff is hard to find (or beat) on food blogs. Even foodgawker. Those sites seem to have a very limited definition of what is a good food photo is all about. Your pictures tell stories. That is rare in this realm, and I love it! GREG

This sounds really amazing, I love boursin cheese! I can see how it would go really well with steak.

Ditto on Greg's comment...that is why I love both of you, and figured he would like your site! Steak must be on the brain lately...

Thanks for your comments, as always, Sarah! I have really been enjoying Jean George's cookbook and can't believe I had never pulled it out before. Sometime this spring I need to attempt one of his tarts. Have a great day!

This is wonderful! I've been hearing so much about flank steak, which I've never used before. With Boursin and avocado lending creaminess, this sounds absolutely delicious!
