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. Lightly score steak by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-in. intervals into top of steak; repeat cuts in opposite direction. 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. Lightly coat grill rack with cooking oil. 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°). Discard toothpicks before serving. Yield: 6 servings.

Reviews for Spinach Steak Pinwheels
"They are very difficult to pound flat enough, and the steak seemed a bit dry. They had good flavor, though."
"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."
