Classic Beef Morcon is a special dish served during the holidays. This is composed of beef frank, dill pickle, carrot, and boiled egg slices rolled in a thinly sliced steak. It is rolled in a way similar to a pinwheel, except that the stuffing is arranged in the center of the roll.
Eye of round or top sirloin are the best cuts of beef that can be used for this recipe. I refer to this as “steak” in the recipe procedure below.
I used diced tomato in can and tomato sauce for this dish. I think that it went well. It was delicious as our previous morcon recipe, only that this has more sauce, which is awesome.
Classic Beef Morcon can be enjoyed with rice. Thinner slices can also be served as hors d’oeuvre.

- Slice the steak into 6 x 5 inch pieces. Put a slice of beef frank, pickle, carrot, and wedged boiled egg in one side of the steak. Roll the steak until a cylindrical shape is formed. Secure by tying a kitchen twine. This will be your beef morcon. Set aside. Perform this step until all the steak is consumed.
