So excited to be back with my Sunday Supper crew. I took so time off because my life was pure chaos. I was waiting for my life to become less chaotic to rejoin the Sunday festivities but then I realized if I wait till my life calms down I’ll never rejoin them. Sometimes you just have to embrace the crazy and move on.

I saw these Steak Rolls on Steamy Kitchen and knew they would be making an appearance on my table, and my blog, at some point. I’ve been chomping at the bit to give them a whirl. I wanted to switch them up a bit though. So I made half with Asian flair, then half with our own BBQ-style. My daughter loves steak but she prefers barbecue sauce over all other sauces. So I decided to do these mini-me style and make them almost southern is style. Hope you love them. I know we sure did.

Western Style Steak Rolls

Recipe for steak rolls with a western style flair. These steak rolls are filled with peppers and onions and covered in barbecue sauce. Seriously scrumptious recipe that is simple to make.


    For the Marinade:
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the Steak Portion:
  • 10 ounces of flank steak
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the Filling:
  • 1 green pepper, cut into matchstick size pieces
  • 1 red pepper, cut into matchstick size pieces
  • 1 yellow pepper, cut into matchstick size pieces
  • 1/2 sweet onion, cut into matchstick size pieces
  • 1/2 red onion, cut into matchstick size pieces
  • 2 shallots, cut into matchstick size pieces
  • For the Pan Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic, pressed, or 1 teaspoon minced garlic (less or none of if you are not a garlic fan)


    For the Marinade:
  • Whisk together all the ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
  • For the Steak Portion:
  • Cut steak into thin strips, if you can't get them think enough you can use a meat tenderizer to pound them out. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in a container and pour the marinade over top. Pop the lid on the container and seal it, then give it a shake. Pop in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.
  • For the Filling:
  • Cut all your ingredients into thin strips. Add some oil to a stir fry pan and bring to a medium heat. Once the oil glistens you can toss in the veggies. You only want to cook them for about 3 or 4 minutes. You don't want them too soft they are hard to work with. Remove and transfer to a plate or container till needed. It helps to let them cool so feel free to pop them in the fridge while the meat is marinating.
  • For the Pan Sauce:
  • In a frying pan over medium heat melt the butter. Add your favourite barbecue sauce, water, salt, pepper and garlic. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes or so. The sauce should reduce to about half. If you want it sweeter you can hit it with a touch of sugar. If you want it thicker you can hit it with a touch of tomato paste.
  • Putting it all Together:
  • Remove your ingredients from the fridge about 20 minutes before you need them. Discard any excess marinade.
  • Now lay your steak strips on a cutting board. Take a handful of the veggies and pop them on the steak so they stick out the side. You're basically making a T shape with your steak and veggies. Now tightly roll the steak around the veggies and secure with a toothpick. Repeat until all your pieces are bundle up beautifully.
  • In a large flat bottomed pan add over medium heat add about a tablespoon of butter. If you're afraid of butter (seriously people, a little butter is awesome for pan frying) use oil.
  • Once the butter (or oil) glistens you can add the steak rolls, seam side down. Allow them to sear on one side, then turn over. Add 1/2 the pan sauce and cover the pan, cook for about 2 to 5 minutes depending on the thickness of your steak. Remove carefully from pan. Remove toothpicks. Plate the steak rolls. Pop the extra pan sauce in a small bowl.
  • Serve with a big old western style smile!

I updated the photos today so ignore the next paragraph. I wanted to leave it in so the comments below made sense though.

“I apologize for the lackluster photos today. I have a pinched nerve that has been hounding me for a week. I shot these at night when no one else was home to help move props or hold bounce boards and the like. I had a long chat with hubs later that night about needing good quality lighting so I can shoot at night. We live in Ontario, Canada and we really only have about 3 or 4 months of good quality light a year for photos. So I sat him down and said “big girls need big girl lights”. He laughed and we agreed once we pay off a debt hovering over our heads I’m going to invest in some big girl studio lights. We always discuss what we consider “big expenses”. Helps to keep us focused on things we need to focus on. But I’m not going to lie, I want my lights yesterday. I have no idea when I’ll get a set of good lights but hopefully soon. In the meantime I’ll try to reshoot these little cutie pies in natural light.”

    Nice recipe! I like all kinds of sauces, but BBQ is near and dear to my heart. Hope you get big girl lights soon! They make a huge difference. But, alas, they do cost $$$. It’s nice to have two, but you can do an awful lot with one light, and bounce cards.
