I think I’ve mentioned before I always try to get him to eat veggies and sometimes the best way to do that is to wrap them in meat. You win some you lose some 😏
This is another quick recipe. The best part is you get to drink some wine.
What you need:
- Olive oil
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 medium onion
- 1 zucchini
- 1 glove garlic
- ¼ cup beef broth
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 8 slices of sirloin or flank steak
- 3 table spoons of dry red wine
- ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar
- Salt and pepper to taste
You can add other veggies such as mushrooms, carrots or whatever else you prefer.
- Rub each side of steak with olive oil, salt pepper and rosemary.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in skillet over medium heat.
- Core, seed and slice both bell peppers into long strips.
- Cut onion and zucchini into long strips.
- Place peppers, onion and zucchini in skillet and cook until crisp. ( I cooked them for about 10 minutes)
- Lay veggies long ways on top of steak so veggies are sticking and roll. You can use a toothpick to make sure it stays secure. Do this for each piece.
- Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and garlic to a sauce pan over medium heat. Allow to cook for two minutes until fragrant.
- Add brown sugar, wine, vinegar, Rosemary and red wine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.
- Heat up your grill or since it was raining, I used the George Forman.
- Add beef broth to the balsamic mixture and return to boil for 15 minutes.
- Place steak rolls on grill and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until you reach your desired level.
- Remove sauce pan from heat and drizzle sauce onto each steak roll.
And you’re done! I should also mention if you don’t have a grill option you can cook the steak rolls in a skillet with some olive oil.
This was another hit in our household.
Next time I want to add tomatoes 😍
As for wines you could use Pinot Nioir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah or Zinfandale. If you like completely dry then perhaps Bordeaux and Burgundy.
I’m a Pinot Noir girl but this time we went with Dark Horse Merlot.
