Grilled Steak Pinwheels

I've been serving this recipe to family and friends for 20 years and very seldom do I have any leftovers. We try to keep the house cool, so we grill out often. —Mary Hills, Scottsdale, Arizona

    The steaks were kind of bland.

    I love this! However, if you want to grill these pinwheels sliced, you really need to MINCE all the ingredients so they will not fall out during grilling. I used larger pieces of basil and also some minced garlic. Grilled the entire flank steak with the skewers in, for about 15 minutes on one side and 5 on the other, then took them off the grill an it was still too rare inside, so I THEN sliced them into pinwheels and put them back on the grill and the ingredients did not fall out. Really a great taste. For 4 people really one flank steak is enough, but up to you. One will serve 4 with lite appetites. I served with grilled pineapple slices and tossed green salad. Nice

    Barely any flavor and not worth the time and energy making (very messy). I mixed cream cheese and pesto and served it on top as a sauce to make it tasty.

    The combined bacon, mushrooms, onion, basil, and chives is so amazingly delicious. Put all together it is great. I think the filling would be great with any steas just on the side.
