Caprese Steak Roll-ups

CapreseSteakRoll-upsHeader TipHero

The flavors of steak and caprese seem like they were just made to go together, don’t they? To us, the only thing that could possibly make a perfectly-seared piece of meat better are that classic combination of cheese, tomato, and basil. You could always get the flavor palate by serving a caprese salad alongside a regular steak, but there’s a more exciting option: Caprese Steak Roll-ups! This impressive dish puts provolone cheese, basil and tomato inside a roll of steak for taste like no other, then adds prosciutto for amazing measure. It looks like you’d need the skills of a professional chef to make it, but it’s actually easier than you’d ever imagine. Watch and learn how you can serve it to your friends!

CAPRESE STEAK ROLL-UPS
Serves 4 to 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

You’ll Need
– 2 pounds flank steak, pounded thin
– Salt and pepper, to taste
– ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, julienne
– ½ cup basil leaves, flattened
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 4 to 6 slices provolone cheese
– 4 to 6 thin slices prosciutto
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– Cooking twine
– Toothpicks

How To

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius). Soak the toothpicks in water for 10 minutes.
  2. Place the flank steak on a cutting board and cover with heavy plastic wrap to avoid mess. With the smooth side of a meat mallet or a rolling pin, gently pound the meat thin, about ½-inch thick.
  3. Generously season both sides of the steak with salt and pepper. Evenly spread the tomatoes over the top of the flank steak. Top with flattened, whole basil leaves. Place the provolone slices over the basil and top with the prosciutto.
  4. Carefully and tightly roll the steak away from you, toward the opposite edge, tucking the filling in as you go.
  5. Place the roll seam-side down and tie crosswise, with kitchen twine, in even intervals. With a sharp knife, slice the roll into thick pinwheels. Skewer each pinwheel with a toothpick.
  6. Heat a large oven safe skillet over medium- high heat. Add the olive oil and place the steak, cut-side-down, in the pan. Sear for 2 minutes on each side.
  7. Place the pan in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
  8. Remove the skillet and cover with aluminum foil for 10 minutes, allowing the steak to rest.
  9. Slice and serve garnished with chopped basil.

Delicious, impressive, yet easy! It doesn’t get any better than that! What do you think? Have you ever tried a steak roll-up before?
