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:
  1. Whisk together all the ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
For the Steak Portion:
  1. 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:
  1. 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:
  1. 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:
  1. Remove your ingredients from the fridge about 20 minutes before you need them. Discard any excess marinade.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Serve with a big old western style smile!
