Slice the steaks into 2,5 cm strips. Place a dollop of the bread mixture on each strips, roll up, and fix them with a toothpick.
Heat the olive oil in a pan and cook the roll-ups, browning them on both sides.
Meanwhile, heat the tomato sauce in a wide pan, and when the roll-ups are well cooked, transfer them to the sauce and cook them in it for a few minutes.
Serve the roll-ups hot.
