Grilled Pinwheel Steaks with Mango Salsa

Grilled Pinwheel Steaks with Mango Salsa
 Memories of Mom flooded back this past week. She liked to visit her special butcher shop and pick up their Pinwheel Steaks. She served them on occasion for Sunday dinner. I decided I would try to replicate them with a new twist, Grilled Pinwheel Steaks with Mango Salsa, for our Mother’s Day dinner.

  A girlhood memory realized, they are amazingly easy to make, so enjoyable, plus low-carb.

Grilled Pinwheel Steaks with Mango Salsa

Here’s how to make your own Pinwheel Flank Steaks:

I purchased 2.79 pounds of choice, beef, flank steak (from Costco) @ $6.29 per pound= $17.55, under $3.00 per serving. I trimmed as much of the fat as I could, although flank steak is very lean, your arteries will thank you!

Lay steak flat and pound thin. Cut into 1″ wide strips and roll into pinwheels. Secure with wooden skewers. I made 6 good-size pinwheels and…

 As you cut straight, thin strips, you’ll find you have little scraps left. Freeze them for Steak Fajitas down the road…Ole!

I use this quick marinade container, that works so well holding the pinwheels while they rest and relax for 2-4 hours. I poured 1 cup of soy sauce over the top, cover, flip, and tuck in the fridge till about an hour before Chas, throws them out on his grill. He grills them for 10-15 minutes per side.
Now before I get too far ahead of myself, here’s the new twist…
Do you love these outrageously, gorgeous, bright, yellow, mangoes? They are amazing solo, but combined with fresh red or green bell pepper, onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper…Mango Salsa is absolutely perfect with meat, poultry, fish, or tortilla chips.

Combine fresh mango, bell pepper, and onion in afood processor or blender and give it a little whirl as you pulse. Add fresh cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper and pulse until it reaches the consistency you’d like.

Flavorful zip and lush color, a fresh salsa adds so much to a simple meal. This salsa is made more colorful with red pepper and red onion. I had a green bell pepper and yellow onion…it works!

    Hi! I just found your blog through a comment you left on One Perfect Bite. My Italian butcher makes these pinwheel steaks during the summer for the grill. He layers Mozzarella cheese in them. I hope you’ll check out my blog.

    Oh my, your mango salsa looks wonderful. I imagine that it would be delicious served with halibut. Your Mother’s Day dinner is scrumptious.
