Add a dollop of homemade Charred Scallion Gremolata, and you’ve got yourself a culinary masterpiece in just 20 minutes! Join us on this culinary journey as we explore the art of grilling pinwheel steaks.

Prep Your Steak for the Grilled Steak Pinwheels

Before we dive into the cooking process, let’s prepare our star ingredient – the skirt steak. To ensure even cooking, place bamboo wood skewers in water for 15 minutes to prevent burning. Lay the skirt steaks on a cutting board and cover each one with parchment paper or plastic wrap. Gently hammer the steaks until they are less than 1/2″ thick, ensuring uniformity in thickness.

Assemble Your Steak Pinwheels

Now comes the fun part – assembling the pinwheels. Start by spreading 1 tablespoon of basil pesto evenly on each steak. Layer 2-3 slices of prosciutto and provolone cheese on top of the pesto. Carefully roll up the skirt steaks lengthwise, forming pinwheels, and secure them with two soaked wooden skewers. Slice each pinwheel between the skewers to create two separate pinwheels. To enhance flavor, coat the outside of each pinwheel with canola oil and season generously with kosher salt.

Let the Grilling Begin!

Preheat your grill to a high heat of around 400°F for two-zone cooking. Place the assembled pinwheels on the hot side of the grill and sear each side for approximately 1 minute to achieve a delectable crust. Move the pinwheels to the cooler side of the grill and allow them to cook for 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 120°F.

Time for the Sauce

No meal is complete without a sauce to elevate the flavors. Let’s prepare the Charred Scallion Gremolata. Begin by charring scallions over the flames for 3-4 minutes, imparting that delightful smoky flavor. Once charred, remove the scallions from the heat and chop off the root bulbs. Slice the scallions into thin pieces and combine them with chopped parsley, minced garlic, and a splash of lemon juice.

Serve Your Grilled Steak Pinwheels

After grilling the pinwheels to perfection, allow them to rest for 10 minutes to retain their juiciness. Slice the pinwheels into smaller pieces and garnish them with the prepared gremolata. For the final touch, drizzle a bit of balsamic vinegar over the pinwheels. These flavor-packed delights are bound to leave your taste buds begging for more.
