1. Matambre Steak Roll
A “matambre” is an Argentinian flank steak stuffed with hard-boiled eggs and bell peppers. The inside is also coated with chimichurri, an Argentinian sauce made of finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, olive oil, oregano, and crushed red pepper. The name is a portmanteau of "matar" and "hambre" – meaning "hunger killer" – which is exactly what this XXL roulade will do for you! Get the recipe for the Matambre Steak Roll.
2. Cheesesteak Roast
3. Rump Cap Roast
The rump cap cut features heavily in Brazilian cooking, where it is known as the Picanha. With a decent amount of fat coverage to keep it moist, the rump cap is perfect for barbecues and roasting. This recipe focuses on the latter, as we'll be creating a heavenly roast that packs plenty of punch in the flavor department! Get the recipe for the Rump Cap Roast.
