Meat Roses

Flat iron steak cut into strips rolled with bacon into roses. These steak roll-ups were baked but can guarantee they are better grilled. Keep reading
Trimmed fajitas work well in this recipe if flat iron steak (blade steak) is not an option. Made some cilantro chum to spread within the roses. A few days before this one I used the cilantro chum raw and did not dig it. Try it, you may like it and could use some at the plating. The sauce is very basic sour cream, red bell pepper, roasted garlic, blue cheese blended and strained. This recipe is for just the roses. Depending on mood virtually any sauce will work.
Warning from experience this is not an option for a traditional rose giving event; it is a supplement.

Rose Parts

  • 2 lb blade steak
  • 1 cup cilantro (fresh chopped )
  • 3 tbs Dawgs Bark
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • ½ tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 oz jalapeno (='s ½ jalap (Optional))


Build The Cilantro Chum

  • Go ahead and pull bacon from fridge. It’ll be easier to work with.
  • Start charcoal or preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put cilantro, jalapeno, garlic clove, dash of salt, and red wine vinegar in blender.
  • Turn blend on medium and open pour hole in lid.
  • Slowly pour in olive oil until you start to get a paste and the cilantro continues to blend and not just stick to sides. It took almost ¼ cup to get a good chewed up paste.

Rose Build

  • Trim meat free of any membranes.
  • Cut steak with the grain making long strips. The width should be a little less than bacon's width.
  • Cover steak strips with Dawgs Bark in a bag, bowl, or sprinkled.
  • Lay a piece of bacon on cutting board, a strip of flat iron on bacon, then spread cilantro chum across the top.
  • Roll the stack into a rose. Try to keep one side even and the other side will naturally be uneven creating a “sort of” rose appearance.
  • Pin each meat rose with a toothpick to keep it together.
  • Place tinfoil over a cookie sheet. You can place roses directly on that or I use a grate on tinfoil then roses on grate.
  • Place in oven for 45 minutes and check.
  • It is likely you will need to cook another 15 minutes. You’re looking for the visible bacon being cooked. Most the time the full cook is 1 hour I just like to check up on things at 45 minutes.
  • Have fun with your own twist and let us know how it worked out for ya!

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
