Directions

If your butcher doesn't have flattened flank stead, then buy the version they have and flatten it at home with your kitcheen tenderizer (I still all it a kitchen hammer. Flatten the mat to about inch. Set aside.

In a nonstick skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in the no salt homemade bread crumbs, mushrooms, parsley, 21 spice mix pepper.

Spread the sauteed mix over over steak to within 1 in. of edge. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Either tie together with kitchen string or metal skewers.

Place into your crockpot or slow-cooker. Stir in the broth. Cover and cook on low or high, for many crockpots that means 6 to 8 hours. 6 hours is higher heat than 8 hours.

Remove meat to a serving platter and keep warm. Skim fat from cooking Juices left in the pot and pour the juice into a small saucepan.

In a small bowl, stir together the cornstarch and water until smooth. Pour this into the juice in the saucepan and stir until well blended. Bring to a a boil cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.

Remove the skewers or string before slicing for serving.

1 Let any of the bread you make at hime harden, chop into crumbs. If in a hurry, toast the bread until it's toasted through. The "Optional" is there to allow you to drop the crumbs or replace that with 1 cups of diced red potatoes. I like to saute the potatoes or broil or barbecue them and then add them during the last hour of slow-cooking or just stir them in at the end. This is a geographical choice in most cases. Some area like the bread, some the potatoes and we've learned some don't like either.

2 Or Costco's 21 seasoning mix or similar store brands, but without salt.
