|Stuffed Steak Rolls with Crushed Peanut Sauce|
3 T-bone steaks, deboned ( you can use strip loin if you wish)
2 cups blanched spinach
3 spring (green) onions cut in half to give you 6 lengths
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tbsp Mirin or Rice vinegar
1 cup crushed roasted peanuts
On a large cutting board take the T-bone steaks and cut them in half lengthwise to yield 6 strips. Place a large piece of parchment paper over them and with a mallet pound them until they are about 1/8th inch thick.
On one end of each, spoon 1 tbsp spinach and place 1 length of green onion over it. Roll up tightly and secure closed with a toothpick. Repeat with the rest of the meat and place them in a shallow dish. In a small bowl mix the hoisin and Mirin and pour over the steak rolls, spooning the sauce over the sides. Let sit for 5-10 minutes. To prepare crushed peanuts - you can use any roasted & salted cocktail peanuts. Just pour 1 cup into a food processor and chop until they become little chunks. Spread them on a plate. Heat BBQ to very hot. Grill rolls for approximately 5 minutes on each side (for a rare inside as above) or a little longer for more well done. Roll each beef roll in the crushed peanuts and cut them into slices. These are great as a main dish with any vegetable or stir-fry, or even as hors d'oeuvres - but you will have to spear each slice with a toothpick to make them easier to pick up. Great with sweet and sour sauce or sweet chili sauce !
