Beef Filet Rolls with Soy Dipping Sauce
Makes 24-30 rolls
2 pounds beef tenderloin, trimmed
1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
½ cup brown sugar
Kosher salt and black pepper
5 scallions, green tops cut into 3-inch strips sliced lengthwise (slice white tips thin for sauce)
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 3-inch thin strips
1 orange bell pepper, seeded and cut into 3-inch thin strips
Pre-heat oven to broil.
In a bowl mix together the soy sauce and brown sugar until dissolved. Slice beef into thin slices (about ¼-inch thick), place some plastic wrap on each piece and using a meat pounder, pound until about 1/8-inch thickness. Place beef in the soy sauce mixture and marinate for 5 minutes.
Reserving the soy marinade, remove the beef, separate and shake off excess soy mixture and place each piece on a large work surface. Sprinkle each beef piece with salt and pepper then place one strip of scallion, red and orange bell pepper strips. Roll up and place a wooden toothpick into center to hold together.
Lightly oil a broil pan and place beef roll ups evenly on pan. Cook under the broiler for 3-4 minutes.
In a small sauce pan, pour in the reserved soy marinade and boil for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a dipping bowl and add sliced white tip scallions. Serve with the beef roll ups.
