{steak roll-ups with balsamic glaze}

So, I have this kid that loooovveesss steak.  Me, not so much.  I mean, it’s good just not my favorite.  I rarely use red meat.  I stick to pork, turkey and chicken for the most part.  Finding a way to incorporate a healthy-ish steak recipe was on my agenda.  And let me tell you, this fit the bill!


Anytime you can sneak veggies (these weren’t all that sneaky) it’s a win!!  I selected some of Bay’s favorites.  Zucchini + carrots + bell pepper.  Green onions for the flavor and color.

This recipe does have a few steps, so be prepared.  It is a little more time intensive with making the glaze and chopping veggies.

The end result – worth it!!


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 lbs (8-10 slices) sirloin steak
  • steak seasoning (I used bone suckin’ sauce seasoning)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 carrot, chopped into matchsticks
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped into matchsticks
  • 1 zucchini, chopped into matchsticks
  • 10 green onions
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons shallots, minced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup beef broth


Prepare steak – I found sirloin steaks pre-sliced.  Or ask your butcher.  Season steak generously with steak seasoning + salt + pepper.

Balsamic glaze – Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat.  Add shallots and sautee for about 2 minutes.  Add balsamic vinegar + brown sugar + beef stock.  Allow sauce to come to a boil and reduce.  It will become thick almost a syrup consistency.  Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Chopping veggies into matchsticks is the most time-consuming part of this recipe.

In the same pan (no need to wash) over medium heat, add olive oil + garlic.  Turn heat up to high and toss carrots + bell pepper + zucchini + Italian seasoning in pan and stir fry veggies for about 3 minutes.  Remove veggies from heat and allow to cool.

To assemble steak roll-ups – Lay out all the steak slices and distribute cooked veggies + green onions.  Roll up and place seam side down.  Or secure with a toothpick.

Heat your grill pan or BBQ to medium-high.  Add a touch of oil to grill pan or place on BBQ.  Carefully turn steak roll-up to evenly cook on all sides.  Cook until desired done-ness.

  1. What do you do with the sauce that you set aside? Does it go in before or after grilling the roll ups?
