Serve with orzo, tomato and basil salad.

Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 20 mins

Cook: 6 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 1 1/2 pound flank steak
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 jarred roasted bell peppers
  • 20 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 pound fresh mozzarella, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Directions
  1. Soak 4 wooden skewers in water. Preheat a grill to medium. Lay the steak flat on a work surface and season with salt and pepper. Split the roasted peppers and lay flat on the meat, leaving a 1-inch border at both short ends. Layer the basil and mozzarella on top; season with salt and pepper. Roll up the steak, beginning with a short end, and secure with the skewers, pushed all the way through and evenly spaced apart. Cut the roll crosswise, between the skewers, into 4 equal pinwheels. Lay each one flat.
  2. Drizzle the cut sides of each pinwheel with the olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill, covered, turning once, for about 6 minutes.
