Arrollado Chileno

Obviously by the name you will be able to see this is a Chilean recipe!
This is a thin and large piece of cow beef, covered with a garlic mix, cooked in a rolled up manner. It is delicious to eat either cold or warm.

This recipe in specific comes from my grandma.


(Makes 6 portions)

Malaya / Matambre / any thin and large piece of cow beef
1/2 head of garlic
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 carrot
1 red pepper
1 Celery


Open the beef, cut out all the fat.

Mince the garlic, mix it with a bit of olive oil and salt (pepper is optional).
Spread the garlic mixture all over the beef.

Roll tight the beef and tie it with the string, going all the way around.

Let it rest for a day in the fridge.

On the next day, in a pressure cooker put the chopped carrot and red pepper along with water (enough water to cover the meat).
Add the beef roll and let it cook for 45 minutes.

Take it out, take the string off and cut thin slices.

Serve cool or hot.

The liquid in the cooker maybe processed and taken as soup.

Does this sound like something you would enjoy to eat?

Leave me a comment letting me know.


  1. These look super interesting. I've never had a pressure cooker, but considering one.

  2. Interesting recipe! I am not much of a beef eater, so I probably will not make them. However, I am sure others will love it.
