Lazy beef flourentine pinwheels

Picked these up at BJs:

Talk about easy!  They even come in a pan you can cook them in.  I dusted them with steak seasoning (Kirkland Signature from Costco) and put them on the egg indirect along with some honey gold potatoes in another pan.  I pulled them at about 135 and let them rest.  

There was a good amount of juice in the pan, so I decided to try a pan sauce.  I poured the juice in a sauce pot and added some balsamic, Worcestershire, steak seasoning, and red pepper jelly.  Brought this to a boil and reduced while the beef rested and the potatoes cooked a little longer.

They were really outstanding.  I could probably save a few bucks purchasing the components and building them myself, but for the convenience I think I will just buy them.  

One tip- cut the twine and remove before serving so everyone isn't fighting it at the table ;)


Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

    Looks so simple and easy even I could do it. ;) Looks like a pretty tasty meal. What cut of beef do you think it was?

    Thanks @Griffin.  I'm pretty sure it was flank steak.

    Makes sense. Did you add any wood for smoke?

    There were some cherry chips mixed in the lump from a previous cook and I just went with those.

  • Looks great !  I bet it wasn't flank steak.  I think I see marbling in the meat.  Also, I think flank would have been too tough.  At $7.99/pound, I bet it was a better cut.

    Thanks VI!  You are right- there is a bit of marbling in the meat.  Perhaps it was something better.  I'll see if I can track down the label (dumpster diving in my kitchen trash can).  

    By the way- I think I may have you to thank for the inspiration on pepper jelly in the sauce.  I think you mentioned you use it on pork chops.  I was looking in the refrigerator door for inspiration and I saw the pepper jelly and recalled "I have seen this used somewhere!".  The sauce was quite delicious.

  • Thanks SP.  Yep, I like to glaze pork chops with pepper jelly.  Glad you liked it.

    I found the label...I'm afraid the cut of beef remains a mystery!  The ingredients are listed as:

    Beef, mozzarella cheese,...

    Derp...I just noticed that I can see that in the first pic above!

    Doh!  I didn't realize I spelled that with the Canadian spelling!  Why couldn't you have made your comment within the hour I had to edit my post?? ;)  Oh well, at least it is humourous.

  • BJs?  That reminds me of a joke.

    A guy walks up to a pretty girl at a bar and starts a conversation.

    Guy:  What's your name, Hon?
    Girl: Carmen.
    Guy:  That's a beautiful name.  Is it a family name?
    Girl: No, I named myself that after the two things I love most in life ---Cars and Men
    Girl:  What's your name?
    Guy:  BJ Golfsalot.

    I was thinking of doing those just the other day, but passed because I thought the cheese would just melt out.  I will have to do them now.

    It probably is flank steak if they are anything like what I would make in the deli at Costco. I see the pinwheels at many grocers that list it as flank steak.

    At Costco, we would take the flank and run it twice through a mechanical tenderizer(2 metal scrolls with raised bumps, similar to the surface of a tenderizer hammer). We'd then layer spinach and provolone then roll it up, tie it, and quarter it. We also made a portobello stuffing variety. Flank is $6.49/lb at Costco so that price markup makes sense as I believe most wholesale club's prices are in line with each other.

    @Doc_eggerton Go for it! There was plenty of cheese still after cooking. Luckily it seemed to ooze out the top and on the meat. 

    @Eggcelsior Thanks for the insider tip. At publix they have something that looks about the same and they are listed as "flank steak pinwheels".
