Stuffed Steak Rolls Recipe by

Stuffed steak roll is an ancient Armenian recipe that has been passed down from one generation to the next one. My great grandmother learned this recipe from her mother, and later taught my mother how to prepare stuffed steak rolls in the same method that our ancestors prepared it. I can still remember when my mother taught me how to prepare it in our kitchen in Beirut. I remember the aromatic smell of the spices in the kitchen tangled with the stories of our family that my mother shared with me as we were busy rolling the steaks.

One day I hope to teach my daughter how to prepare stuffed steak rolls as well, while I tell her old family stories and tales! Meanwhile, I am so excited of sharing this ancient Armenian recipe for preparing stuffed steak rolls with the world.

I highly recommend preparing stuffed steak rolls when having guests over. The presentation is neat, the colors are catchy, and the taste, oh the taste is luscious and divine. Three important combinations for a successful dinner or lunch invitation!

Serve stuffed steak rolls with rice and enjoy with your loved ones. Below portion serves 4 people.
