Steak Rollups with garlic basil butter

 This weekend I helped one of my favorite eight year old's celebrate his birthday! For Friday night, I had promised him Steak Rollups- this kid loooooves steak. Almost as much as he loves bacon. Almost.

His Steak Rollup was made of steak, pepperoni, and bacon. A true man's meal, right?
(You can see it on my Instagram here)

The adults devoured these Steak Rollups. They were super tasty, filling, and *surprise surprise* budget friendly!


First butter was melted with chopped fresh garlic and dried basil. It simmered for a bit while the veggies were being sliced and then everything got a little friendly. The super thin slices of steak were seasoned with salt and pepper and then we got our roll on.


The steak stayed together- no toothpicks required. The butter softened and flavored the veggies and kind of leaked out and pooled around the rolls. The smell was awesome- garlic, butter, steak, yumm!



Steak Rollups 
with garlic basil butter


2lbs thin sliced steak- such as flank steak
3 tbs butter
2 large cloves fresh garlic- chopped
1 tsp dried basil
1 medium green bell pepper- sliced
1 medium red bell pepper- sliced
1/2 medium white onion- sliced
salt, pepper, olive oil spray

Heat oven to 375*
Lay out sliced steaks and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Melt butter on medium heat in a small skillet. Add in chopped garlic and dried basil. Allow to simmer for a couple minutes and then cool slightly.
Add sliced veggies to a bowl or bag that you can toss them in. Top with cooled garlic basil butter and mix well.
Using tongs, place a bit of the veggie/butter mixture on one end of the  steaks and roll. Place all roll on a foil lined baking sheet and spray tops with olive oil. I had a couple of stray onions in my veggie bowl so I threw them on top of some of the rolls.
Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on your preferred doneness.

Enjoy with a salad or some garlic mashed potatoes!
