steak teriyaki rolls 2steak teriyaki rolls


This recipe was inspired by PaleOMG’s Marinated Steak and Bell Pepper Roll Ups. My sister brought home Coconut Secret Teriyaki Sauce and I was beyond excited to try it because I love Asian food, and I love making paleo versions that don’t make me feel like dying after. I also found grass-fed sandwich steaks at Fairway, so that made me even more excited for this recipe because it was less work to do. This recipe is pretty simple and easy to make. I marinated my steak around noon; I like to marinate things for a long time so there is lots of flavor. When you’re ready to cook just slice the peppers and onions and cook until they are soft, make the rolls, and cook them. The dinner took me about an hour and a half to make, but I also made sweet potato fries and sautéed shaved brussel sprouts and arugula with it. This recipe came out great, I absolutely loved it. It went over great with the family as well. Everything about this recipe is strict paleo, except the butter for some. If you can’t tolerate dairy than use ghee or lard instead. Non-paleo guests are sure to love this as well since it is very flavorful and peppers/onions and meat go together very well and the teriyaki sauces gives it an extra flavor boost. It has a very mild spice from the sauce.

1.5 lb grass fed sandwich steak (if you can’t find this you can get another type of steak and slice it thin)
½ cup Coconut Secret Teriyaki Sauce
3 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
2 tbsp grass fed butter (1 for veggies, 1 for steak)
1 red pepper, seeds removed and sliced thin
1 yellow pepper, seeds removed and sliced thin
1 orange pepper, seeds removed and sliced thin
½ large yellow onion, sliced


First, marinate the steak. I marinated mine for about six hours but if you can’t marinate it ahead of time you can do it for one hour
Place the steak in a shallow bowl, add in the olive oil, teriyaki sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix everything together and cover the bowl and place in the fridge. Place a large sauté pan over medium heat and add one tbsp of butter
Add in the peppers and onions with some salt and pepper and cook to your desired level of softness
Remove from pan and set aside
Now make the rolls
Place a piece of sandwich steak on a cutting board and place about six pieces of peppers/onions on top making a cross with the meat and peppers/onions
Then roll the meat around the peppers/onions and secure with a toothpick
Once you’ve made all the rolls, heat the sauté pan back up to medium heat and add the other tbsp of butter
Add about 4-5 rolls to the pan and cook to your desired level of doneness on all sides
Heat up the leftover marinade in a saucepan and serve on the side.
