Ingredients

  • 2 pounds center cut fillet of beef, spiral cut
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup store bought pesto
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 long wooden skewers, soaked in cold water for at least 30 minutes

Directions

With the heel of your hand or a meat mallet, pound the meat and flatten to a thickness of about 1/2-inch. Sprinkle the inside of the meat with salt and pepper. Spread the pesto over the meat, leaving a 1-inch border on 1 long side. Roll the meat towards the border.

With your knife, mark the fillet at 1-inch intervals. Run skewers through your fillet in between your knife marks so that each portion has a skewer securing it. Using your knife marks as a guide, cut your fillet into slices. Drizzle with the oil.

Preheat the grill or a grill pan.

Grill slices over high heat for about 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Let rest for a few minutes before serving.
