Rachael Ray: Pinwheel Steak Dinner
Grilling is not just for the summer. Even if you live somewhere that gets cold during other seasons, you can always use a grill pan to work indoors. Try this fun approach to steak dinner with Rachael Ray’s Grilled Pinwheel Steaks Recipe.
Skirt Steak is affordable and “very forgiving,” which Rachael said makes it work well in fajitas or tacos, too. You may need a meat mallet to pound it to the same width all the way. Substitute your own favorite dark greens if you want. Try chilling the meat for a few minutes after wrapping it to make it easier to cut.
