Sirloin Steak Rolls

With spring showing signs of life lately I’ve been thinking more about steak so here is another recipe. Simple weeknight dinner and it’s kid-friendly. I’m always looking for easy dinners on the weeknight so I don’t spend all night making dinner and doing dishes. I served this with the Ranch Potatoes and salad. I’m also addicated to the potatoes!

1 package of thinly sliced sirloin tip steak
1 red bell pepper
4 green onions
3T soy sauce
2T water
2T rice wine vinegar
1T sugar

Place steak (one or two at a time) in a plastic bag. Pound until about 1/8th of an inch thick.

Slice red bell pepper into strips. Sautee in a pan with a little olive oil, until peppers are cooked most of the way through, add 1T of soy sauce and cook 2 minutes.

Slice green onions lengthwise and then in half crosswise. Add one green and one white part and few pepper slices (this will differ depending on the size of steaks) and roll up in steak. Secure with a toothpick.

In a sauté pan heat 1T oil and brown steak on all sides. I take the toothpicks out once they are browned on all sides, at this point they will stay rolled up and you can cook the side the toothpick stuck out.

Mix the remaining soy sauce, water, sugar, and vinegar in a bowl. Remove rolls from pan and add sauce. Let the sauce cook down a bit to create a syrup-like consistency. Pour over the rolls and serve.

Marinated Skirt Steak

This is a recipe I got while in Sonoma at my FAVORITE winery – Mazzocco. Great wine and great food! This was the place we got to barrel taste and go into their vineyard and get a lesson on how to prune vines. I can’t wait to go back. I bet it’s so beautiful there right now…ahhh good times!

This is so super simple (yes John it really is!)

3 parts soy
3 parts teriyaki
3 parts red wine
1 part pineapple juice
Skirt steaks
(I used one steak and 1/3c soy, teriyaki, and wine and about a 1/4c. juice)

I make it the night before and then flip it once in the morning. Cook it on the grill to your liking – I like Med Rare. about 6 minutes per side. That’s all so easy huh!

Here are a few side ideas:

Grilled Veggie Salad
Roasted Ranch Potatoes

You can also turn this into an appetizer by thinly slicing the meat and placing on top of sliced baguette pieces…YUM YUM.
