Beef Roulade is a simple yet impressive entree of beef flank steak rolled with prosciutto, basil and provolone and grilled to perfection.
Simple flavours come together in this wonderful dish and it’s easier than you think. It can easily be prepped in advance making it great for entertaining or a weekend family meal.
What’s important for this recipe is to flatten the flank steak as evenly as possible for ease of rolling and uniform cooking. You also need to season the meat well with salt and pepper. Rolling the flattened meat as tight as possible to hold in the layered elements within is also important. Some cheese does seep out when cooking, so a tight roll will help keep everything in place and minimize the loss of melty cheese.
Be sure to have your grill or pan hot before adding the rolls. They only take 4-5 minutes per side, so you want the surface hot enough to brown the meat before it cooks. As with any meat, it’s important to allow the meat to rest for several minutes prior to serving, this will allow the moisture to settle back into the muscle rather than run all over your plate.
By all means, you can grill the assembled and tied roll as one whole piece and slice to serve, but I prefer the individual grilled portions because you get more charred/seared meat per bite which to me means more flavour. And I’m always game for more flavour, enjoy!
