  1. Cover steak with plastic wrap; pound with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness. Remove plastic.
  2. Place bacon widthwise at center of steak. In a bowl, mix remaining ingredients; spoon over bacon. Starting at a short side, roll up steak jelly-roll style; secure with toothpicks. Cut into six slices.
  3. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill pinwheels, covered, over medium heat 5-6 minutes on each side or until beef reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Discard toothpicks before serving. Yield: 6 servings.
Spinach is loaded with vitamin K, which plays an important role in bone health.
