I'll see if I can get a flank steak locally. If I can, I am in.

@Bevi: I will bow out unless you can't find flank. I've got a couple of good sources so it won't be a problem for me to pick some up, and I'm off work Tues so I can make it last minutish if need be.

HLA - that would be great if you tested it. I can't find flank in this town and I am too busy getting my place in order for the arrival of the prodigal son to drive up to the nearest real population center to get one. I am up to my ears in lamb chops and chicken breasts, but no flank this week. Sorry for the false alarm. I'll return the favor in the near future!

No problem, Bevi! I will gladly test it.

FYI I sent my husband out on a flank steak retrieval mission. He came home empty handed. I guess the moral of the story is don't offer to stick your oar in the water if you don't have a boat.

I will try Vietnamese-style Spring Rolls with Korean-style Beef if it's still available to test.
