Who said that steaming as a method of cooking is sad and tasteless? It’s simply not true! Steaming is not only light and healthy, but also tasty and delicious! In the end, it always takes a bit of creativity and imagination to create a truly sublime dish which is perfect for the whole family. But with steaming you can make dishes very much in line with the dietary needs of all your guests: if, amongst those eating with you, there are those who want light food, those who have to lose weight, those who prefer delicate flavours, and those who could eat a horse … they will all be perfectly satisfied! The recipe we’re proposing today is rolls of topside beef, flavoured with a fabulous stuffing of Parma ham and goat’s cheese. If you want you can modify the recipe according to taste, adding a different cheese or another type of sliced meat. You will discover that, once you’ve tried steaming as a method of cooking, you’ll use it again and again!
Cut the cheese thinly. Place the ham on the slices of meat. Place a slice of cheese on the ham. Roll up the slices and secure the roll with a toothpick; do this for all the rolls. Place the steam basket inside a saucepan filled with water just as far as the steaming basket. Bring the water to the boil and place the rolls in the basket, add salt, a sage leaf on each if you like, and then cover the pan and wait until cooked - if the meat is not too thick this will take just a few minutes. Serve the rolls with a side salad of fresh rocket and a few drops of balsamic vinegar.
