Picture of grilled meat wheels
Summertime to me means barbecue and anything barbecue is awesome! These tasty grilled appys are a great way to satisfy your guests, follow along and make your own grilled meat wheels!

I've dabbled with grilled meats before but this time wanted to share a different way to serve a grilled meat canapé. These rolled barbecued goodies are a great snack to serve your hungry guests while they are waiting for the rest of their BBQ fare to be cooked, and best of all it's served on a stick!

This recipe can be adapted to suit any type of meat or flexible vegetable (like thinly sliced eggplants, zucchini, turnips or carrots), and can be stuffed with almost any type of filling (provided at can stay inside the roll).

Enough talk, let's grill!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of ingredients
This recipe uses flank steak as it is very thin, along with bacon, onion and spices.

But flank steak isn't the only type of meat this will work with, this recipe can be easily modified to accommodate a wide variety of meat types and ingredients which to include with them. Thin cuts of chicken, pork or other types of beef can be used, either by filleting the cut or tenderizing the meat so it's about 6mm (1/4").
Also, veggies. You can easily substitute the meat in this recipe to use thinly cut slices of eggplant, zucchini or other flesh, bendy, flexible vegetable. 6mm(1/4") thickness, same as meat.

  • flank steak
  • white onion
  • bacon
  • herbs+spices
  • BBQ skewers
  • sharp knife
  • cutting board
Remix all the above ingredients to make your own.

Care to share how you did those super pictures? Do you need a special program? This is a great ible! Love the pics.

I use a basic point and shoot camera, then use Photoshop to crop and edit the levels of my shots. It's a labour of love because I love crisp, clear pictures.

Oh wow those look good . . . I wonder, could you roll them a little larger and make them into steak and onion burger patties? Actually, I think I'll try that with some zucchini this weekend, I bet with some cheese melted on top it would make for a great veggie burger.
Well dang it, the zucchini were too crisp and fresh, they started to break apart when I tried to roll them up. I've got them marinading in olive oil and Italian dressing, we'll see if that softens them up enough to roll. I'll let you know my results!

good idea marinating the zucchini. the nice thing about grilling is that even the mistakes are still tasty, and there's no such thing as too much bqq.

can't wait to see your results!

It looks like I could do this as carne asada..hmm
There's not really a good way to transcribe the sound of lusty hunger I made when I saw these photos, but it 's something along the lines of:


These look delicious. And now I'm very hungry.
