Christmas Eve

I changed my mind. For Christmas Eve, I've decided to try a crab-stuffed flank steak, grilled marinated tomatoes, potato-stuffed bell peppers, roasted asparagus, and garlic bread. I'm hosting a party for 10, so hopefully this will be enough food!

For the steak:
butterfly a flank steak and flatten with a meat pounder.

Stuff with this crab mixture:
1 lb fresh lump crab meat, shell pieces removed (or, to save time and money, use artificial crab in the flake or lump shape--I've used this before, many times, and it still tastes awesome!)
1 1/3 c. soft breadcrumbs
1/3 c. minced green onions
1/3 c. fresh parsley, chopped
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. 2% milk
1 t. hot sauce
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper

Stuff with crab and roll up, tie with kitchen string and bake at 375 for 40 min, or longer if you like your steak more well done.
