Ingredients

  • 4 shallots, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup dry red wine, such as Cabernet
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 pounds flank steak, butterflied
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4-pound thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 1/4-pound thinly sliced fontina cheese
  • 14 fresh basil leaves
  • Olive oil
  • Cabernet-Shallot Reduction, recipe follows
Cabernet-Shallot Reduction:
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 bottle Cabernet wine
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Directions

Whisk together shallots, wine and olive oil in a large baking dish. Add the steak and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Heat grill to high.

Remove the steak from the marinade and blot with paper towels. Lay on a flat surface, cut side up, and season with salt and pepper. Cover the surface with the prosciutto slices, then top with the cheese and a layer of basil leaves. Starting with the side facing you, tightly roll up the steak around the filling. Using kitchen string, tie the roll in 4 or 5 places.

Brush the outside of the steak with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak over high heat until browned all over, 8 to 10 minutes. Turn the steak 4 times as it cooks. Move the meat away from the direct heat and grill for 15 to 20 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer registers 125 degrees F for medium-rare. Remove from the grill and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Slice against the grain into 1/2-inch thick slices and drizzle with the Cabernet-Shallot Reduction.

Cabernet-Shallot Reduction:

Heat oil in a large saucepan on the grates of the grill over high heat. Add the shallots and cook until soft. Add the wine and peppercorns, bring to a boil and cook until thickened and reduced to 1 cup. Strain the mixture into a bowl and season with salt, to taste, and honey.
