Slice the prosciutto crudo, about 100gr, thin slices and cut the cheeses into small cubes enough for all slices of beef. Stretch the slice of beef, place the slice of prosciutto and the cheese and the basil leaf top.
Then roll up the beef together with its filling to form a roll and secure the edges with one or more toothpicks. Repeat for all slices of beef.
Pour 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil into a non-stick pan and add 1 clove of peeled and sliced garlic. Let the garlic brown and then place all the rolls in the pan.
