Grilled Steak Pinwheels Recipe

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. I get most of the herbs in this recipe from my son's garden.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 2 beef flank steaks (1 pound each), trimmed
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil or 4 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives


  • 1. Flatten steaks to 1/4-in. In a large bowl, combine the bacon, mushrooms, onions, basil and chives; spread evenly over steaks.
  • 2. Roll the meat up and secure with skewers or toothpicks. Cut each roll into 1/2- to 3/4-in. slices and secure with a toothpick.
  • 3. Grill over medium-hot heat for 4-6 minutes on each side until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Remove toothpicks. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"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."
