Lime Bavette Rolls

Preparation 20 MINUTES
Cook 4 HOURS
Serves 4 TO 6
Steak freezes well

We usually grill our steak on the barbecue. In this recipe we put it directly in the slow cooker with all the seasonings and cook it for 4 hours. It’s as simple as that! All that’s left to do is to put the meat on the table with some nice crisp lettuce leaves and let everybody roll. It tastes of summer. Bavette steak is also sold as bib or flap steak.

15ml brown sugar
15ml all-purpose flour
15ml chili powder
5ml ground cumin
5ml ground coriander
1kg bavette steak, cut against the grain into 5mm thick strips
125ml beef broth
2 green onions, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 lime, grated zest and juice
60ml finely chopped fresh cilantro
salt and pepper

boston lettuce leaves
sour cream
1 or 2 avocados, sliced and drizzled with lemon juice
fresh cilantro leaves

Bavette steak in the slow cooker with brown sugar, flour, and spices. Add the remaining ingredients, except for the cilantro and mix thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper.

Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. If the meat is kept on warm for a number of hours, it will become very tender and shred easily. Add the cilantro and adjust the seasoning.

Garnish. Place the meat and garnishes in serving dishes and set them on the table. Everyone can top their lettuce leaves with sour cream, meat, avocado and cilantro – roll and enjoy!
