  1. Cut the beef into strips that are approximately 1 inch wide and the same length or close to the length of the bacon strip, about 1/8 inch thick. Serve hot.
  2. Make the beef bacon rolls by laying a strip of bacon on a strip of beef and rolling the two meats together so that the beef is on the outside when you finish rolling. Insert a toothpick so that it goes in on the bottom left side and comes out the top right side when looked at vertically.
  3. In large skillet, saute onions and butter until onions are tender. Lay a single layer of beef bacon rolls in the skillet. Brown them on medium heat, turning once or twice. Cover the skillet and simmer about 2 hours.

This is an excellent apetizer for the grill also. I baste with Itallian dressing and put on the grill. Instead of the toothpick, I use a dry spaghetti noodle. It melts when done and you don't have to worry about biting into the toothpick. Great for tailgating parties.

These were only ok - I had high hopes from the good reviews, but for me they were actually too fatty. I must prefer bacon on the crisp side, because to have it that soft and tender was unappealing. People seemed to like them, but there were a lot leftover, so they may have just been being nice. Very tender and flavorful, but skip these if you dont like the texture of the white fatty part of meat.

Well, I looked in the freezer, and was pretty much down to the dreaded roast. Not my husband's favorite. So I was looking for something different to do with it. I was kinda skeptical, but this was a real hit. After his first bite, I got, "WOW, this is great!" A real compliment considering that I get the eye-roll when I tell him its a new recipe. I don't like onions, but put them in there anyway. You don't need to eat them, but it gave it a really good flavor. The meat was done perfect and very tasty. I put a little bit of garlic in there (mainly habit). I served with a little bit of horseradish. Definately a keeper...Thanks!

I pounded my steak first, froze it for half an hour & then cut bacon-sized strips out of it. I also clarified my butter because of the long cook time. Allrecipes gives instructions here but it's easier to do in the microwave using a glass container, so that you can see the milky layer. These were incredibly tender & loaded w/ flavor, particularly since I served them w/ Mouthwatering Whiskey Grill Glaze (an allrecipes recipe). Great recipe. Thanks, Kelly Scraper!

Good idea, but bad technique. The rolls were really greasy and the bacon was soft. After cooking as described in the recipe, I would use only 1 Tablespoon of butter, you would need to put these rolls under a broiler to crisp or brown up.

These are great! I thought for sure the 1 1/3 cup of butter was a mistake, but they turned out perfect and were delicious. Can't wait to try them with fresh from the butcher shop steak!!

This recipe was easy and delicious. I added mushrooms to the onions and butter and it worked out great. I recommend that everyone try this recipe; I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

These were quite good. I clarified the butter as suggested by another reviewer. I also only used a/b 1/3 cup. After I cooked them, I removed them & added 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar to the sauce in the pan and 3 tbs. brown sugar, and reduced it to a nice glaze, then ladled it over the beef rolls. Everyone enjoyed it and my husband said it's a "make again".
