Spinach Steak Pinwheels Recipe
- 1-1/2 pounds beef top sirloin steak
- 8 bacon strips, cooked
- 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1. Cover steak with plastic wrap; pound with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness. Remove plastic.
- 2. Arrange bacon widthwise at center of steak. In a bowl, mix remaining ingredients; spoon over bacon. Starting at a short side, roll up jelly-roll style; secure with toothpicks. Cut into six slices.
- 3. 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.
