Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat just until brown but not crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels.

  • Trim fat from steak. Score both sides of steak in a diamond pattern by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals. Cut meat in half lengthwise. Place portions of meat between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, lightly pound each meat portion into a 10x6-inch rectangle, working from the center to the edges. Discard plastic wrap. Sprinkle meat with 1/2 teaspoon of the lemon-pepper seasoning and the salt. Arrange bacon slices lengthwise on meat.

  • In a medium bowl combine spinach, feta, bread crumbs, the dried thyme, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning. Spread stuffing over meat. Starting from a short side, roll each portion of meat into a spiral. Secure with wooden toothpicks at 1-inch intervals, starting 1/2 inch from one end. Cutting between the toothpicks, slice each roll into six 1-inch-thick pinwheels. On each of six 6-inch skewers,* thread two pinwheels.

  • For a charcoal grill, grill pinwheels on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 14 minutes for medium doneness (160°F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place pinwheels on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)

  • To serve, remove pinwheels from skewers; remove toothpicks. If desired, garnish pinwheels with fresh thyme sprigs and serve with grilled tomatoes.


If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before using.
