PREPARING THE FULLBLOOD WAGYU BAVETTE STEAK ROULADE
While the mixture is cooling, trim off any excess fat and sinew off the Fullblood Wagyu bavette steak.
Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Butterfly the bavette steak with the grain, and open it up so you have a rectangle.
Lay the meat flat on a cutting board. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Then, lay down a layer of prosciutto slices on top of the bavette steak.
Spread a thin layer of the prepared shallots and garlic mixture on top of the prosciutto.
Top with feta cheese.
Roll the bavette steak jelly roll style.
Secure the filled and rolled Fullblood Wagyu bavette steak by tying it together with butchers twine.
Season the outside of the steak with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Place the Fullblood Wagyu bavette steak roulade on a roasting rack, and put it in a preheated oven at 450°F.
Cook for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 300°F.
Cook for an additional 35-45 minutes or until the meat has reached an internal temperature of 120°F.
Let the Fullblood Wagyu bavette steak roulade rest at room temperature for 10 minutes.
