Grissini with Steak and Arugula

Grissini with Beef and Arugula
Recipe type: Appetizers
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced rare roast beef or beef tenderloin, cut into twenty-four 6-by-1 1/2 -inch strips
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 24 arugula leaves, stemmed
  • 8 to 10 grissini (about 1/2 inch thick) or breadsticks
  • Remoulade Sauce
  1. Make the grissini oil: In a small saucepan, cook the garlic in the oil over moderate heat until golden. Using a slotted spoon, discard the garlic slices; let the garlic oil cool completely.
  2. Spread the roast beef strips on a work surface and lightly brush them with the garlic oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper and cover each beef strip with an arugula leaf slightly larger than the strip. Roll 1 beef strip tightly around 1 end of each breadstick. Arrange on a platter and serve with the Remoulade sauce.
Make Ahead
  1. Prepare the Remoulade just before serving.
  2. The assembled grissini can be refrigerated for up to 1 hour.
  3. Wrap the platter in plastic wrap to avoid the meat dehydrating or picking up flavors from other foods.
