16. Beef Steak Rolls with Asparagus
- 7 oz Sirloin Steak (100g per 3.5 oz) sliced* into 6 thin, flat, wide strips -approx 35g per strip
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 12 asparagus spears
- 2 tbsp beef broth
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp fresh rosemary chopped
- 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/32 tsp powdered stevia *
- 1/2 cup red bell pepper (½ of a bell pepper) sliced-AP
Dissolve baking soda in 1/2 cup warm water
Soak steak strips the baking soda mix for 15 minutes. This helps make lean meat much more tender. Rinse steak thoroughly/repeatedly with cold water
Lay steak on a sheet tray and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, garlic powder and rosemary. Rub seasonings into meat and set aside
Sauté asparagus spears with beef broth, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper for 6 minutes. Asparagus should be cooked but crunchy. (If making AP variation, also sauté the red bell pepper slices with the asparagus)
Place asparagus spears in the center of the sirloin (2 spears per sirloin) and wrap steak around asparagus. Secure ends with a toothpick
Bring balsamic vinegar and stevia powder to a boil and immediately turn off the heat. Set aside
Grill steak rolls on a preheated grill pan for 3 minutes on each side.
Brush each roll with balsamic glaze and serve while warm
- A way to make it easier to slice meat thinly like this is to stick it in the freezer for 20 minutes first.
- You should be able to slice one 100g steak into three thin flat pieces to make three rolls per serving.
