My Rendition of Beef Morcon

I’ve only tried to make this recipe once before and love it!  The first time was a semi-success, despite how half of the stuffing came out and the sense of nervousness upon trying out what looked to be a complicated dish.  This time I felt less nervous about making this dish and also bought a slightly larger flank steak.  With all baking aside, one thing you will learn about my style in cooking is that I don’t quite measure anything.  As long as I have all the right ingredients, and even if I didn’t, I just go with the flow of things.  I like to experiment with taste as I imagine most home cooks like me do.  Thus on this note, below is my personal recipe for this classic Filipino dish.
