If you’re looking for a quick and delicious meal that can be ready in just 20 minutes, look no further than Grilled Steak Pinwheels. Made with the mouthwatering Skirt Steak, these pinwheels are a true delight for meat lovers. With layers of provolone cheese, sautéed onions and mushrooms, crumbled blue cheese, and crispy bacon bits, they are bursting with flavor.
The Perfect Grilling Technique
There are two different approaches to cooking these pinwheels: grilling over hot coals or smoking them. If you’re after maximum flavor, grilling over hot coals is the way to go. To ensure perfect cooking, set up two zones on your grill. The hot grilling zone is where the coals lie, and the opposite side is your indirect zone. Sear the pinwheels on each side over the hot coals, then transfer them to the indirect side to reach their desired temperature of 128 degrees.
Prepping Your Steak for Grilled Steak Pinwheels
Before diving into the cooking process, there are a few essential preparation steps. Soak some wooden skewers in water for 15-20 minutes to prevent them from burning during cooking. Meanwhile, sauté your diced onions and mushrooms in a cast iron skillet until translucent, creating a flavorful addition to your pinwheels.
Building Flavorful Layers
With your skirt steaks trimmed and thinned out, it’s time to season them generously with a blend of salt, pepper, and garlic. Now comes the fun part: building the layers! Start with slices of provolone cheese, followed by the sautéed onions and mushrooms, crumbled blue cheese, and cooked bacon bits. Roll the steak tightly from bottom to top and secure it with butcher’s twine. Finally, run the soaked wooden skewers through the pinwheels.
Let’s Get Grilling!
Before tossing your Steak Pinwheels on the grill, apply some canola oil and sprinkle kosher salt on the surface area. Fire up your grill by banking the hot coals to one side, leaving the other side empty for two-zone cooking. To prevent sticking, rub down the grates with canola oil using a paper towel.
Place your pinwheels directly over the hot coals and grill them for 3-4 minutes on each side, getting that perfect sear. Once both sides are seared, move the pinwheels to the indirect side of the grill, close the lid, and let them cook for an additional 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on the internal temperature, ensuring it reaches 128 degrees Fahrenheit.
Enjoy Your Grilled Steak Pinwheels!
Now, you’re ready to savor the rich and flavorful Grilled Steak Pinwheels you’ve created. They make a fantastic main course that will impress your family and friends. Serve them alongside your favorite sides and enjoy a delicious meal straight from the grill.
