8 thin slices sirloin or flank steak (length and width according to personal preference)
Extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Fresh rosemary, chopped
1 red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
1 green bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
1 medium zucchini, sliced into thin strips
1 medium yellow onion, halved and then thinly sliced
A few white button or cremini mushrooms, cut into thin strips
Rosemary Balsamic Glaze:
1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 large clove garlic, minced
¼ C dark balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp dry red wine
2 tsp brown sugar
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
¼ C beef broth
Rub each side of the steak slices with a little olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, freshly ground black pepper and some chopped fresh rosemary.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the vegetables and mushrooms until crisp-tender, seasoning with salt and pepper.
Place a few of the vegetable strips vertically on one end of each steak cutlet so that once rolled up the end of the vegetables are sticking out of each end of the steak roll.
Roll it up, and secure it with a toothpick. Repeat for each steak roll.
For the rosemary balsamic glaze, heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for one minute, until fragrant. Add the balsamic vinegar, red wine, brown sugar and the rosemary sprigs and bring to a rapid boil. Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for five minutes. Add the broth, return to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for another 15 minutes. Discard the rosemary sprigs.
Prepare the grill and grill on each side for about two minutes or according to desired doneness. Do the same if cooking them in a skillet, frying over medium-high heat until done.
Serve immediately drizzled with the rosemary balsamic glaze. Baked potatoes make a great accompaniment.
