Balsamic Steak Rolls

Quick, colorful, and all wrapped up for your convenience, these juicy steak rolls are packed with vegetables and finished off with a tangy-sweet balsamic glaze. Adding basil and oregano without a pile of tomatoes gives them a very fresh Italian flavor. Pile a few of them on your plate for dinner, or pull out a big platter for a party food or an appetizer. They’re a great size for kids, and having a bunch of smaller rolls makes it easy to accommodate everyone’s appetite.

If you have any leftovers, these are also good cold: it’s almost like a steak sandwich, if you skipped the bread and went straight the good stuff inside. Pull one out of the fridge for a quick snack, or throw a few into your lunchbox to keep you well-fed and going strong through the afternoon.

For side dishes, what about some roasted cauliflower and a hot bowl of tomato soup, or maybe just your favorite fresh salad, drizzled with olive oil and a little more balsamic? Or if you’re serving them as appetizers, just stick a fancy toothpick in each roll and call it done: there’s no need to spend a lot of time fussing with the presentation when you could be sitting back to enjoy the delicious meal waiting for your fork.

Steak Roll preparation

Preparation

  2. Melt the ghee in a skillet placed over a medium heat.
  3. Add the shallots and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the balsamic vinegar, honey, beef stock, and season again with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half. Transfer to a bowl.
  6. In the same skillet, add some cooking fat and cook the garlic for 1 or 2 minutes; then add all the remaining vegetables and cook until soft but still a little crunchy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  7. Season with oregano, basil, sea salt and pepper, and transfer to a bowl.
  8. Arrange a small pile of vegetables in the center of each slice of beef. Tightly roll the meat around the filling, and secure with a toothpick.
  9. Return the beef rolls to the skillet, and cook over a medium-high heat on all sides until the meat is cooked through.
  10. Remove the toothpicks, spoon some of the balsamic sauce over the rolls, and serve.
