These beefy spirals are an easy dish to make, and great to grill at a backyard cookout. I get lots of compliments on it. —Helen Vail, Glenside, Pennsylvania

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

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.
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.
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.
Health Tip: Spinach is loaded with vitamin K, which plays an important role in bone health.

"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."
