1. In a small bowl soak dried tomatoes in enough hot water to cover for 10 minutes. Drain. Snip into small pieces.

2. Meanwhile, score meat by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals in a diamond pattern on both sides. Place meat between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Working from center to edges, pound with flat side of a meat mallet into 12x8-inch rectangle. Remove plastic wrap. Sprinkle meat with the salt and pepper.

3. Spread the spinach over the steak. Sprinkle with the softened tomatoes, feta cheese, and basil. Roll the steak up from a short side. Secure with wooden toothpicks at 1-inch intervals, starting 1/2 inch from 1 end.

4. Using an oiled skillet, sear the meat on all sides (1-2 min per side).

5. After all sides are seared place in oven, on a broiler rack and cook at 400 degrees for 5 min (or until internal temp reaches 160.

6. Remove from oven and slice meat on either side of the toothpicks so you have 1 inch slices.
