Midweek Mealtime - Steak Roll-ups

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

I don't know why, but last week all I could think about was a nice juicy piece of red meat.  I found a recipe for steak pinwheels, but - quite frankly - I didn't like anything in it.  However, I DID like the idea...  so I decided to make my own!  It was an experiment, and - as I posted on my Facebook page - I was terrified that the result would be, let's say, less than stellar.  But I am happy to report, it was AMAZING! 


  • 1.5 lb flank or round steak
  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 Tbsp horseradish (fresh or jarred, NOT creamy)
  • 5 oz crumbled blue cheese
  • 8 oz jar roasted red peppers, drained
  • 2 cups fresh spinach


  1. Place beef between two pieces of plastic wrap, and pound to approximately 1/4 inch thickness.  I used round steak this time, so I actually ended up with two pieces after I pounded it.  Trust me, it still tastes phenomenal.  :)
  2. Spread the yogurt over the steak.
  3. Evenly distribute the horseradish over the yogurt.  If you like the flavor, don't be afraid to add more.  I definitely will be next time I make this (which, I just bought some more steak with that specific purpose, so it will be soon!).
  4. Sprinkle the blue cheese and red peppers evenly over the steak.
  5. Spread the spinach over the steak.
  6. Roll TIGHTLY and secure with toothpicks, if needed.
  7. Bake at 425 degrees for 35-45 minutes, depending on preference (I did 35 minutes because I prefer my beef a bit on the rare side).
  8. Let the meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
