Father’s Day and Steak Roll Ups

Happy Father’s Day! Today is Mr. Bean’s first fathers day, but since we just bought a house and money is a bit tight, we didn’t go all out…

*Sorry Mr. Bean*

To be honest, he is impossible to buy for. If he wants something, he goes and gets it. So instead, Baby Bean made him an adorable little card and I cooked him a lovely meal of steak!

Red meat isn’t something we have much of in the Bean household, mostly because I am a pescatarian, and also because it’s just not very healthy. So since it’s a special occasion and all, I made him these awesome Grilled Steak Roll Ups with some grilled veggies on the side.

This recipe is fun and easy, and the sauce is zesty and tangy. The recipe calls for skirt steak or sirloin, so I used the sirloin because there is less fat. I also cut the butter in half, but stuck to the rest of the recipe.


Balsamic Glazed Steak Rolls

Recipe slightly adapted from PictureTheRecipe.com

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Makes 8-10 rolls



8-10 thin sliced sirloin steaks

1 carrot

1 bell pepper

1 zucchini

5-6 scallions

2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp brown sugar

1/4 cup beef broth

Chop all veggies into matchstick size. Mince garlic cloves and set aside.

For the glaze, add the olive oil to a small sauce pan on medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and beef broth. Allow sauce to come to a boil and reduce until it is thick like a syrup. Transfer sauce to a bowl.

In the same pan (no need to wash it), turn up the heat to high and add the veggies. Stir fry for no longer than 2-3 minutes. Transfer the veggies to a bowl.

To assemble steak rolls, simply lay a strip of steak flat and place veggies in the middle. Roll the steak up and secure with toothpicks. Repeat with remaining steak strips. Don’t forget to evenly distribute your veggies between each piece of steak!

Preheat your grill to 400 and lightly oil the grates with an oil soaked paper towel using tongs. When ready, add steak rolls and cook evenly for 2-3 minutes on each side. When done cooking, remove toothpicks and drizzle with sauce. Enjoy!


According to Mr. Bean, it was a Father’s Day he’ll never forget.

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful fathers in the world!
