Steak Blankets

Finally sorting out computer issues!
Ok, I got this recipe out of an OLD Taste of Home recipe book, and changed it up a little bit.  Talk about melt in your mouth deliciousness!! It was easy, healthy, and AMAZING!  This is definitely going onto my regular menu!

Top sirloin steaks (or any other steak you like)
soy sauce
fresh green beans

At my local Lin's grocery store I had Matt- a buddy I grew up with who's a butcher there cut a family pack of top sirloin steaks in half thickness wise.... this made each steak about 1/4- 1/2 inch thick.

In a bowl (or Tupperware season serve) mix 1/3 c. soy sauce, 2 T sugar, and 1/8 t. ginger. Marinate meat in this mixture for up to 2-3 hours. (I only marinated mine about 30 mins)

While it's marinating, slice carrots in thin long strips.  Blanch, which means boil for a couple of minutes, the carrot slices and long green beans.  You want them partially cooked, but not fully cooked.  Strain them & have ready for steaks.

Lay one steak out flat, place 3-4 of each carrots and green beans on top, then wrap the steak around the veggies and secure with a toothpick. Continue with all steaks and veggies.

Melt 1/2 cube of butter (4T) brush each steak & veggies with melted butter. 
To cook, you can grill them (perfect for Summer time) or bake them like I did.  I baked mine at 350 for about 15 minutes or until steaks were cooked.

I served the steak blankets with some baby potatoes, cut in half then lightly coated in olive oil and garlic & herb seasoning, and then baked until done. (at 350 for about 15-20 mins)  This is another healthy option for a side dish that goes great with most anything!
