Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (1 1/2 ounces), such as Roquefort or Maytag blue
  • 1 pound thinly sliced rare roast beef
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch watercress
  • 1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and cut into thin strips
  • 1 yellow pepper, stemmed, seeded, and cut into thin strips
Directions

Cream the butter and cheese with a fork in a medium bowl until evenly mixed together.

Lay the roast beef slices on a flat surface to make 16 rectangles, each about 5 by 8 inches. Depending on the size of the slices, it may be necessary to combine them, overlapping slightly along the sides. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Spread 2 teaspoons of the cheese mixture along the short end of the beef rectangle. Strip the leaves from a watercress sprig and scatter the leaves over the cheese, and then top with a few pieces of both red and yellow peppers. Roll the beef, enclosing the butter and vegetables, and continue rolling into a tight cylinder. Wrap snugly in plastic wrap. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.

To serve, trim the ends and halve the rolls, crosswise.
