Round steak gets pounded out thin, spread with an herb paste, piece of prosciutto, rolled and sautéed - so delicious. Serve with pan roasted potatoes and peas or over steamed rice or barley.

Total Time45 mins
- 2 lbs thin round steak (See Note 1)
- 3 garlic cloves , minced
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
- 1 lemon , zest
- 3 tbsp olive oil , divided
- 4-6 slices prosciutto (See Note 2)
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 onion , medium, diced
- 1/4 cup Sherry
Cut the steak into 8 pieces. Pound the meat out until thin and almost double in size.
In a small bowl mix the garlic, red pepper flakes, cheese, parsley, lemon zest and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Spread this on the surface of the steaks.
Cut the prosciutto or bacon in half and place a 1/2 piece on each steak. Roll these pieces of steak and secure with a toothpick.
Dust each filet roll with the flour. In a skillet over medium high heat brown in remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, turning on all sides. See 2 cooking methods below. Instant Pot pressure cooker method saves 1 hour cooking time.
Stove Top Method: When steaks rolls are completely browned add the water and onion. Cover and cook on low heat for 1 1/2 hours.
Remove steak rolls from sauce, discard toothpicks and keep warm. Bring sauce to the boil and add sherry. Reduce to thicken and serve sauce over steak rolls with pan roasted potatoes and peas or over steamed rice or barley.
Instant Pot Method: Add browned steak rolls to pressure cooker add the water and onion. Deglaze skillet with sherry and scrape up browned bits on bottom of pan and pour over meat. Cover with lid and choose Meat/Stew setting. Remove toothpicks. Serve sauce over steak rolls with pan roasted potatoes and peas or over steamed rice or barley.
- I often times buy "breakfast steaks" or the thin round steaks that have been tenderized by the butcher, pre-packaged.
- Feel free to use thin cut bacon slices to substitute for the prosciutto if you prefer.
- If you're converting meat from a slow cooker to an Instant Pot, follow this rule: if the meat dish cooks in eight hours on low or four hours on high in the slow cooker, it will cook in 25-30 minutes in the Instant Pot. Make sure the Instant Pot setting reads "sealing" and not "venting" to ensure it's cooked properly.
