Spicy Beef Roulades
These were inspired by some roulades we had from Marks and Spencer in the 2 dine for a tenner (which were delish but i thought i could improve them)
- 2 thin pieces of your favourite cut of steak (minute/friying/sirloin all work well)
- two heaped tablespoons of marscapone
- big bunch of spinach
- 2 tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce
- 1 tin of chopped plum tomatoes (drained)
- 2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
- salt and pepper
- small red onion
- olive oil
- handfull of grated cheddar cheese ,parmesan or mozerella
- Pre heat oven to 180 degrees C
- Blanch the spinach in boiling water then plunge into cold water so that it keeps it’s colour.
- Place the onion and garlic in a blender and whizz until finely chopped, add the drained tomatoes and a little olive oil to thin out, then add your sweet chilli sauce (you can add more if you wish).
- Tip the sauce mix into a sauce pan and simmer for 10-15mins until nice and thick. Season to taste. Remove from the heat.
- Cover the steaks in cling film and bash out really thin using a mallet or rolling pin
- Drain the spinach and remove moisture using a tea towel or by gently squeezing the spinach.
- Mix the marscapone and spinach in a bowl and season to taste.
- Season your flattened steaks with salt and pepper then slice each steak into half.
- Divide the spinach and marscapone mix between the 4 slices of steak and carefully roll up into 4 little parcels.
- Place on a baking tray and cover with the tomato sauce.
- Top with the grated cheese
- Bake in the oven for 20-25mins until steak is cooked and the cheese is golden.
- Serve with homemade chips and veg.
