Flank Steak Pinwheels

Flank Steak Pinwheels
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

These festive wheels of steak, light herbed cheese spread, spinach and sun-dried tomatoes look fancy, but they're quite easy to make. For a party, arrange them on a platter atop a bed of spinach.

Ingredients
  • 2/3 cup
    sun-dried tomatoes, not packed in oil
  • 2 cups
    boiling water
  • 1 pound
    flank steak, trimmed of fat
  • 1 clove
    garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons
    light herbed cheese spread
  • 1 cup
    baby spinach
  • 3/4 teaspoon
    kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Place sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl; pour boiling water over them and let steep until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain and chop.
  3. Meanwhile, place steak between 2 large pieces of plastic wrap. Pound each side of the steak thoroughly with the pointed side of a meat mallet until the steak is an even 1/4-inch thickness.
  4. Rub garlic all over one side of the steak. Spread cheese lengthwise in a 3-inch-wide strip down the middle of the steak. Top with the sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Starting at one edge of a long side, roll the steak up tightly, tucking in the filling as you go.
  5. Carefully rub salt and pepper all over the outside of the steak roll. Turn the roll so the overlapping edge is on top. Push 8 skewers, evenly spaced, through the roll, close to the overlapping edge to hold the roll together. Slice the roll into 8 equal portions, roughly 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick, with a skewer in each. Lay the slices on their sides and push the skewer through so it sticks out about 1 inch.
  6. Oil the grill rack. Grill the pinwheels 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Use a spatula when turning them to prevent too much filling from falling out. (Don't worry if the ends of the skewers burn. They will still hold the pinwheels together.) Remove the skewers; let the pinwheels rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Tip

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare the steak roll (Steps 2-4). Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 6 hours. When ready to grill, proceed with Steps 5 and 6.
