Spinach Steak Pinwheels Recipe

Bacon and spinach bring plenty of flavor to these sirloin spirals from Helen Vail. "It's an easy dish to make and great to grill at a backyard cookout," relates the Glenside, Pennsylvania cook. "I get lots of compliments on it."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2016

"These were delicious, but not as easy to make as the description suggests. I had to slice the steak as I could not pound it thin enough. Flank steak might be easier to use. The spinach stuck to the grill. They are worth the effort though."
