No, I just stuff them and put them in the oven. How long do you boil them for? I thought about putting water in the pan while in the oven but parboiling makes much more sense.

Just parboil them for three minutes at the most in salted water. Let the water come to a boil first, then remove them and pat them dry with paper towels. You are using pasta and sauce in them? That sounds yummy. I always use rice and leftover picadillo. I have not made them since my ex and I broke it off.

Yes, we are just using the leftover spaghetti sauce but going to add some ground beef since we ate the chicken breast last night. We typically stuff our bell peppers with rice as well but we did this the last time we had leftover spaghetti and it was delicious. You could even stuff it with noodles in the sauce and it is delicious! It really isn't much different than spaghetti since we often dice bell pepper into it anyway but at least it feels like we are changing things up, haha.

If you are a stuffed pepper fan, you might like this one - Greek style with feta and parmesan cheeses. If you can get the long, sweet red peppers with thinner skin that's best for this recipe: http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Peppers-Stuffed-with-Feta-Piperies-Gemistes-Me-Feta

I make stuffed peppers with a mixture of ground turkey, brown rice, diced tomatoes, onions and some monterey jack or cheddar cheese. Cook all that, mix the cheese in. I cook the peppers first usually for 4 minutes or even 5 minutes, depending on how soft they feel. I season the mix with some garlic and some worcestershire sauce. I baked the stuffed peppers 30 minutes at 350 F. Top with a little more cheese at the very end. Yummy and good for you.

In addition to parboiling my peppers first, I no longer do them in the oven at 350. Instead I put them in a Dutch oven on top of the stove and monitor them. I do put some water in the bottom of the Dutch oven. This seems to work well for me.

They came out great, boiling them first worked perfectly.

Anyone have any ideas on what to make with/how to serve flank steak?

Over rice pilaf or cous cous, with onions, raisins, currants and/or pine nuts added to either.

How about a steak salad?
Or a steak sandwich?

Flank steak is a little tough. You want to marinate it, cook it for a few minutes on each side and then slice it against the grain of the meat. That will make it more tender. Agree with Rex it makes a great steak salad with crumbled blue cheese or a sandwich with au jus.

Flank steak is great for fajitas - as skatemommy says, marinate it and then once grilled you can slice it thin and serve with the usual accompaniments - flour tortillas, grilled peppers and onions, grated cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream.

It's a great meal for the family or friends because everyone can make their own.

All of your ideas sound delicious! I love steak salads, especially because I'm usually only cooking for one. I may try out the fajitas idea if I have my family over for dinner. I've just never cooked this type of meat before so I had no clue what to do with it.

I also like to cook my flank steak and then let it cool and serve on a salad. It is really good the next day. It is a tougher piece of meat and I find I don't mind that in a salad but when it is warm and juicy I always wish it was more tender.
