Steak Roulade

aka how to wow ppl without much work.

What you need:

1. Thin cut steaks:

Thinner the better looking for carne asada level.
You can pound the Steaks thinner as I did here, just will take longer.
Thinner steaks will also soak the marinade up better.

2. marinade:

olive oil
Worcestershire sauce
balsamic vinegar
clove of garlic or so to taste
dash of salt /pepper

3. Filling:

ham slices
provolone slices
shredded Parmesan cheese
a little bit of chopped fresh basil (not to much)

  • Marinade the steaks for 3 hours

      (pound them thinner before hand if need be)
  • Take the steaks our of Marinade and lay flat

      (Keep the leftover marinade to coat the steaks with a brush while cooking)
  • Line in order, Ham, Provolone, Parm, Basil

      (again not much just an even sprinkle)
  • Roll tightly and place at lest 3 toothpicks to keep from unrolling

  • Lay some Tinfoil down on the BBQ

      (as the cheese can melt and make a mess)
  • Cook time is dependent on how think the slices of Steak is

      The ones in the picture are pretty thick, so they took about 20 minutes 
      However time will vary, just looking to cook the meat in the middle.

Add some twice baked potatoes and some greens. Or just a salad as these are pretty heavy by themselves

-Spicy Tomato Sauce-

Mild to me but spicy to others, this recipe is a little more experimental and not exact yet as its my first time trying it this way. Did most of it by eye.


Olive oil
Chopped Garlic
Chopped onion
Red pepper flakes
Can Tomato sauce
Can Tomato paste
Can Stewed tomatos
Walnuts chopped fine
Italian seasoning
Fennel seeds
Pinch of pepper
Small can of mushrooms
Small can of black olives

-Loose directions

In large pot, warm oil add in garlic, onion and red pepper flakes, saute until garlic is golden brown

Add tomato paste/stewed/sauce and black pepper/fennel/seasoning along with walnuts

Simmer, then reduce heat cook on low for about 20 minutes.

Then add mushrooms and olives. Cook for another minute or two.

Add in chicken or what have you, serve by it self or over pasta.

Turned out well, kinda put to much pepper flakes I think, a little powering but added some more stewed tomatos and its fine

One thing that is missing is shreaded carrot to the saute mix. Really adds that extra bit to take it over the top.

Will post a follow up when I get it down to a more perfected recipe
