Beef and Spinach Pinwheels

INGREDIENTS:
  • ½ cup chopped mushrooms
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped carrot
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 (10-oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. curry powder
  • ⅛ tsp. white pepper
  • 1 (1-1 ½ lb.) flank steak
  • sour cream
  • mayonnaise
  • dijon mustard
  • lemon juice
DIRECTIONS:
  • Sauté mushrooms, onion and carrot in hot oil until tender. Add spinach, salt, curry powder and pepper; combine thoroughly and set aside.
  • Make shallow cuts diagonally across steak in a diamond pattern at 1-inch intervals. Repeat on second side.
  • Pound steak into a 12x8-inch rectangle with a meat mallet. Spread spinach mixture over steak to within 1/2 inch of edges.
  • Starting at short end, roll up steak jellyroll-style; secure with wooden picks at 1-inch intervals. Cut between picks into eight 1-inch slices.
  • Place slices, cut side down, on metal tray. Cook for 16 to 18 minutes at U=8, L=8, M=2 or until desired doneness. Serve with Creamy Mustard Sauce.
  • For creamy mustard sauce, combine 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard and 1/2 tsp. lemon juice in a small bowl and blend thoroughly.
