The secret to these pretty flank steak pinwheels lies in their butterfly treatment. Because the steaks are flattened, marinade isn’t need. Instead, they’re filled with a colorful stuffing of red pepper and spinach and draped with a flavorful, homemade blue cheese sauce.
“We’ve been making these refreshing burgers for years,” Jill Christopher explains from Grants Pass, Oregon. “Served on onion rolls with cream cheese and avocado on top, they’re a nice change from the regular cheeseburger. Everybody asks for them when we barbecue.”
"In summer, I love to marinate these steaks overnight, then grill them for family and friends," writes Tim Hanchon of Muncie, Indiana. "When the weather is not as nice, they can be cooked under the broiler." The recipe makes a lot, so you can use the extra steak to make Pepper Steak Salad or Steak Tortillas (also found in Recipe Finder).
Agnes Ward, of Stratford, Ontario says, “These are no ordinary beef kabobs! They’re herb-infused and need to marinate at least an hour or overnight for the best flavor. If you feel like splurging, this recipe’s also fantastic with beef tenderloin.”
By using fantastic ingredients such as beef tenderloin, crabmeat and fresh asparagus, Cindy Dorsett of Lubbock, Texas brings us her elegant meal. She writes, “Steak Oscar is a fine recipe combining the delicious taste of asparagus with only the finest of steaks around.”
If you haven't already enjoyed the rich, creamy pairing of blue cheese with your favorite steak, stop reading and get cooking! I take it a step further by folding in a little butter to make the dish even more drool-worthy. —Amanda Martin, Monson, Massachusetts
