Balsamic Steak Roll Ups

Disclaimer: that’s not my plate. It’s my fiancès. 

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 
  • Rosemary
  • ¼ cup beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar 
  • Rosemary 
  • 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. 

The process:

  1. Rub each side of steak with olive oil, salt pepper and rosemary. 
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in skillet over medium heat. 
  3. Core, seed and slice both bell peppers into long strips. 
  4. Cut onion and zucchini into long strips. 
  5. Place peppers, onion and zucchini in skillet and cook until crisp. ( I cooked them  for about 10 minutes)
  6. 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. 
  7. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and garlic  to a sauce pan over medium heat. Allow to cook for two minutes until fragrant. 
  8. Add brown sugar, wine, vinegar, Rosemary and red wine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. 
  9. Heat up your grill or since it was raining, I used the George Forman. 
  10. Add beef broth to the balsamic mixture and return to boil for 15 minutes. 
  11. Place steak rolls on grill and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until you reach your desired level. 
  12. 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.  

 Hope you guys enjoy!
