  • Roll the steak tightly from bottom to top. The grain should run along the length of the roulade. Tie with butcher's twine every two inches. Finally, wrap tightly with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. Marinate for at least four hours, overnight for best results.

  • Preheat half your grill to medium-high heat. Sear the roulade over direct heat, rolling it to form an even sear, for 5-10 minutes. Finally, move to indirect heat to finish cooking to an internal temperature of 130˚F. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature.
    Remove from heat and allow to rest for 10 minutes before removing the butcher's twine and slicing into half-inch slices. Enjoy!
