    Salt and pepper (to taste)

    Toasted pumpkin seeds (for garnish)

    MEAT ROLLS

    INGREDIENTS

    1 pound boneless thin-sliced sirloin steaks

    ½ pound thin asparagus, slightly cooked

    1 teaspoon oil 

    4 diced tomatoes or 1 14.5-oz can of diced tomatoes

    2 oz white wine

    2 oz cream (optional)

    Salt and pepper to taste

    DIRECTIONS

    Flatten the steaks and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Place 2 or 3 asparagus on the narrower end of each steak and roll. Cut excess meat so that the rolls turn out approximately the same size. Fasten with wood toothpicks

    Heat pan, pour oil, and when hot, place the rolls and let them brown evenly on both sides – two minutes per side. 

    Remove pan from heat and add white wine. Place over heat again and let the wine cook. Once it evaporates slightly, add the tomatoes and mix. Cook for 6 minutes over medium-low heat.
