How thick is it?
Does it resemble flank or flat iron steak? If its thin you could probably do that but spread it on top then roll it(like a jelly roll) tie it and cook it.
The first time I bought a flat iron steak, I had no idea what to do with it. I ended up panfrying and it turned out tender enough even when cooked to well done. Ive since done them in different ways and always have had it turn out.
Im not sure what cut of beef the store here uses to make the "stuffed" steaks but they do it the jelly roll style and suggest grilling or baking it for a short amount of time.

it is the more tender cut of a tougher but tasty piece of meat. it's not tenderloin as might be suspected; better imo.

just sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper and grill over very high heat. time depends on the thickness.

if you want to kick it up, make a compound butter of fresh thyme, a bit of minced garlic, and salt. as the steak is about done, hit it with a piece of the compound butter to melt over top.

Mock Tender/Scotch Fillet/Chuck Eye

This is a fairly tender, usually inexpensive cut from the chuck. I buy them whole sometimes but they can also be cut to resemble a tenderloin fillet. Sliced thin and marinated, they are perfect for Korean Beef. They can also be cooked/grilled as regular steak as long as they are not overcooked. Marinated and grilled in their whole state they can be sliced and served with a nice relish made from grilled vidalia onion, scallion, and jalepeno!
