Toothpick Beef Recipe

Juicy tender slices of beef skewered on toothpicks and cooked with spices to produce garlicky flavourful morsels. The stuffing of beef is done by slicing the beef sirloin and form it into 2″ x 2″ square. Then lay it flat on a surface, fill it with the slices of what ever stuffing you want, then roll it like a spring roll then secure it with the toothpick. Once the beef is cooked it will stay that way with the filling inside even if you remove the toothpick.
