  • 12 sheets Athens® Phyllo Dough (9″x14″), thawed
  • 10 ounces beef round thin cut steaks
  • 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups onions, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed red, yellow and green peppers, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 12 slices reduced fat provolone cheese


Thaw one roll of phyllo, following instructions on package. Preheat oven to 350⁰F. In a large skillet, sauté steaks in oil with salt and pepper until meat begins to brown. Drain excess grease. Add onions, peppers and garlic. Continue sautéing about 5 minutes until peppers and onions become soft and start to brown.

Unroll and cover phyllo sheets with plastic wrap, then a damp towel to prevent drying out. Place one sheet of phyllo on work surface and coat lightly with cooking spray. Sprinkle with a teaspoon of Parmesan. Repeat with three more sheets of phyllo, but do not spray or sprinkle Parmesan on top layer. Lay 2 pieces of provolone side by side at the end of the short side of the dough. Place 1/4 of the steak mixture in a line on top of the cheese 2” from the bottom. From the bottom, lift phyllo over the filling. Tuck in the phyllo from the edges and tightly roll to the end. Place seam side down on baking tray. Repeat the procedure to make 3 more rolls. Coat the rolls lightly with spray to produce a golden brown color when baked. Reroll unused sheets and follow storing instructions on package. Bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden brown.
