Hawaiian Protein Roll Ups

By now you probably know that we are girls who love our veggies, fruits, seafood, chicken and fish (and of course, our chocolate—mention any and we’ll already be drooling! After all, that’s why we created recipes like our Chocolate Drizzled Granola Balls, our Guac-Chocolate Mousse -which marries veggies and chocolate and is debatably one of our top five favorite creations, and our Chocolate Drizzle Popcorn, just to name a few J ). But you’ve been asking for healthy meat dishes as well that taste delish and won’t break the calorie-bank. And who are we to disappoint? 🙂 So we had our fabulous intern Kelsi Wildermuth create a healthy steak dish that is just for you meat lovers and for our Paleo peeps!

 

Remember fruit roll ups as a kid? Well that’s the inspiration for this protein roll up! To take it even further, vegetables and juicy pineapple are rolled in a piece of meat, simply tossed on the grill, and voila! A little taste of Aloha! The steak is marinated in Dr. Bragg’s liquid aminos and the veggies are drizzled with it. (Bragg’s liquid aminos are lower-sodium, non-GMO, replacement for Tamari and Soy Sauce.) Grill this up for any time of the day! It’s like having your own little luau.

As we always say, a healthy meal must have both protein and fiber to provide satiety and prevent dips in blood sugar. This Hawaiian Roll-up has both– a 22 gram protein punch and seven grams of fiber in one serving! You’ll also get a dose of iron and B12.

Kelsi’s Tips:

  • Imagine you’re on a mini vacation to Hawaii for dinner tonight.
  • This dish is best a little on the rare side.

 

Enjoy the flavors of Hawaii, from our kitchen (well, Kelsi’s kitchen 🙂 ) to yours, aloha nui loa

 

 

Hawaiian Protein Roll Ups

(Yields 6 servings)

 

Ingredients:

– One pound butterfly cut prime rib steak

– ¼ cup Bragg’s liquid aminos

– 1 large carrot

– 1 zucchini

– 1 red pepper

– 1 pineapple

– 6 toothpicks

Directions:

  1. Marinate Steak in aminos overnight or for about 4-5 hours (if you don’t have time to marinate, just drizzle the meat with the liquid aminos and allow to sit for about 10 minutes (this marinating helps to eliminate grilling carcinogens) before throwing it on the grill).
  2. Wash and shred the carrots and zucchini and julienne the red pepper into thin strips.
  3. Cut the pineapple at the top and bottom, peel the sides with a knife, and cut the remaining edible portion into long, thin strips.
  4. Lay the meat flat on a workspace and cut into 6 equal rectangles.
  5. Top each rectangle with the fruit and veggies, drizzle liquid aminos on the mixture.
  6. Roll each rectangle into a cylinder shape and toothpick the meat to hold closed by weaving the toothpick through both layers of meat .
  7. Place on a grill for 10-15 minutes, rotating every 2 minutes. (Cook until medium rare for best flavor and extra juiciness).

(If you don’t have a grill, bake at 350 for 20 minutes, but keep an eye on it so as not to overcook.)
