Pinwheel Flank Steaks

Here's a yummy, elegant-looking steak dish that's a breeze to make. Much of the preparation can be done in advance. That's a plus for a busy mother like me with two active little girls and a self-employed husband. —Nancy Tafoya, Fort Collins, Colorado
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds beef flank steak
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pepper, divided
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • Cut steak horizontally from a long side to within 1/2 in. of opposite side. Open meat so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. Remove plastic and set aside.
  • In a shallow dish, combine the oil, vinegar, Italian seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon pepper and seasoned salt; add steak and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Drain and discard marinade. Combine the bacon, garlic, parsley, onion, salt and remaining pepper; sprinkle over steak to within 1 in. of edges. With the grain of the meat going from left to right, roll up jelly-roll style; tie with kitchen string at 1-in. intervals. Cut into six 1-1/4-in. rolls.
  • Lightly oil grill rack. Grill steak rolls, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Cut and remove string before serving.

    Everyone LOVED these! I prepped everything the day before as the meat needed to marinate and then put it together the following day for the BBQ. Fantastic flavors and easy to make. Highly recommend and we will definitely have often this summer!

    My steaks turned out perfectly tender, but I found the marinade to be a bit overwhelming for my meat. I think if I make this in the future, I'll just take it easy on the pepper. I also used onion powder and garlic powder instead of onion and garlic in the rolls. They were very nice looking and fancy!

    I wish the steaks were more tender.
