Balsamic Glazed Steak Rolls

Balsamic Glazed Steak Rolls

Ingredients: (makes 8-10 rolls)

  • 1 1/2 – 2 lb skirt steak/ 8-10 thin sliced sirloin
  • Salt & Pepper (according to taste)
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Any steak seasoning you like
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For the Veggie filling

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1/2 a zucchini (depending on size)
  • 5-6 green onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp italian herb seasoning

For the Balsamic glaze sauce

  • 2 tsp butter
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped shallots
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup beef broth

Directions:

  1. Start by prepping the steak. (I used skirt steak cos it’s what I had on hand, but in hind sight, I probably would have gone for a more leaner cut like flank steak or looked for thin sliced sirloin.) I trimmed as much fat as I could and cut the steak into 3 inch wide strips. I managed 8 strips and used the odd shapped ends to taste test my marinade and balsamic glaze. You can then tenderize the meat with a meat hammer (if you’re using sirloin it doesn’t need any tenderizing).
  2. Season the steak pieces generously on both sides with salt, pepper and worcestershire sauce. And let them sit in the marinade for atleast 30 mins if not a couple hours.
  3. While the steak is marinating you can prep the filling for them. Chop up the carrot, bell pepper andzucchini into matchstick size pieces, little longer than the width of the steak strips. I used a mandolinslicer to jet thin sliced and hand cut them to make matchsticks. I then cut the green onion in a similar size and sliced them in half length wise. For the garlic, simply peel and crush the cloves with the flat side of your knife, just enough to bruise them.
  4. Now for the sauce, melt the butter in a small sauce pan on medium heat.
  5. Add the finely chopped shallot and sautee it for a minute or 2 until they turn soft and transluscent.
  6. Add the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and beef stock and stir to mix everything well.
  7. Allow the sauce to come to a boil and reduce to almost half its volume. You’ll notice it starts becoming thicker and have the consistency of syrup. The butter also starts separating and comes to the top. Turn the heat off and transfer the sauce to a bowl.
  8. In the same pan (no need to wash it) add a touch of olive oil and toss in the garlic cloves to allow them to flavor the oil for a few minutes.
  9. Turn the heat up to high and toss in the carrots, bell pepper and zucchini (there’s no need to cook the green onion) and stir fry the veggies for no longer than 2-3 minutes.
  10. Season them with the the itlalian herb seasoning and salt and transfer the veggies to a bowl.
  11. To assemble the steak rolls, simply take a strip of the marinated steak and lay it with the short side towards you. Place the veggies (dont forget the green onion!) in the middle and oll the beef up over thefilling, securing it with toothpick. Repeat the same with the other rolls.
  12. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add a touch of oil swirling to coat bottom. When hot, add beef rolls, seam side down, not touching and pan fry for a couple minutes. Then turn roll and cook it on all sides in the same way. Cook until you’re desired done-ness. I cooked mine medium well and seasoned it with some mesquite seasoning for a touch of a smokey flavor.
  13. Remove the toothpick and serve with the balsamic glaze sauce spooned over the top of each roll.

  • 1 13oz. package penne pasta $1.49
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil $0.16
  • 12 oz. (3 links) Italian sausage $2.99
  • 2 cloves garlic $0.16
  • 1 medium onion $0.42
  • 1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes $1.39
  • 1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste $0.56
  • 1 tsp basil $0.10
  • ¾ tsp salt $0.05
  • Freshly cracked pepper $0.05
  • ½ Tbsp brown sugar $0.02
  • ¼ lb. frozen broccoli $0.47
  • ¼ lb. frozen spinach $0.47
  • 2 oz. feta $0.87
  • Cook the pasta according to the package directions (boil for 7-10 minutes, or until al dente). Drain the pasta in a colander.
  • While the pasta is cooking, add the sausage links to a large pot along with one tablespoon of olive oil. Cook the sausage over medium heat for about five minutes, or until they are slightly browned and firm enough to slice.
  • While the sausage is cooking, mince the garlic and dice the onion. Remove the sausage from the pot and add the onion and garlic in its place. Sauté the onion and garlic in the pot for 2-3 minutes, allowing the moisture to dissolve the brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Meanwhile, slice the sausage into medallions. Once the onions are soft and transparent, add the sliced sausage back to the pot and cook for about 5 minutes more, or until the sausage is cooked through.
  • Add the can of crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, salt, pepper, and brown sugar to the pot. Stir until the tomato paste is evenly combined with the tomato sauce.
  • By this time the pasta should be fully cooked and drained. Add the drained pasta to the pot, along with the frozen broccoli and spinach. Stir to combine. Heat the pasta and sauce over a medium flame until warmed through (stir occasionally to help it heat evenly). Crumble the feta into the pot, stir to combine, then serve.
