Slice the steak into pinwheels between the butcher’s twine. Leave the twine intact. Place the pinwheels directly on the grates of your grill and let them cook for 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until the steak reaches an internal temperature of 135°F.

Grilled Steak Pinwheels are the perfect meal that can be ready to serve within 20 minutes! They’re made with one of my favorite cuts of beef, the Skirt Steak! The skirt steaks start with a base layer of provolone cheese, sautéed onions and mushrooms, crumbled blue cheese, and chopped bacon bits!

There are two different approaches to this recipe, grilled over hot coals (this is my preferred way for flavor) or you can smoke them. The key for grilling them is to have two zones set up for cooking. Your hot grilling zone (where the hot coals lay) and the opposite side is your indirect zone. The reason for this is to sear your pinwheels off on each side, over the hot coals, and then transfer them to the indirect side. This allows the pinwheels to come up to the desired temperature of 128 degrees.

The first thing you want to do is get some wooden skewers and place them into a bowl of water, letting them soak for 15-20 minutes. This will prevent them from burning during cooking.

Next, prep all of your onions and mushrooms and place a cast iron skillet over medium heat, wait 6-8 minutes and add a tablespoon of neutral oil with a 1/2 tablespoon of unsalted butter. Place your onions (diced) in the skillet and cook down for 6 minutes and then add the mushrooms. Continue to stir and mix them until they are translucent about 15 minutes. Remove and place them in a bowl.

Place your skirt steaks on a cutting board, make sure they are trimmed, and place plastic wrap on top and pound them out until they are evenly thinned out. From here, season generously with a blend of salt, pepper, and garlic.

Let’s build our Pinwheels! Time to build the layers, starting with slices of provolone cheese, sautéed onions and mushrooms, crumbled blue cheese and chopped-up bacon (cooked already).

Roll the skirt steaks from bottom to top, length-wise, and roll them as tight as you can. Using butcher’s twine, secure the pinwheels and then run the wooden skewers through them. Keep in mind that you are cutting your pinwheels at a 3- 3 1/2” width.

Right before tossing these Steak Pinwheels on the grill, apply some canola oil on the surface area and season with kosher salt.

Fire up your grill by banking the hot coals to one side of the grill, leaving the other side empty for two-zone cooking. Put canola oil on a paper towel and rub down the grates so the surface doesn’t stick to the meat. pinwheel on he grill

Place your pinwheels directly over the hot coals, grill for 3-4 minutes, and then flip them. Repeat the process, grilling for an additional 3-4 minutes. Once you sear both sides, move the pinwheels over to the indirect side of the grill and close the lid. Let them cook for an additional 12-15 minutes, or until they reach an internal temperature of 128 degrees F.

About the QALO Ring

Before we get to grilling the Steak Pinwheels, I have to talk about this QALO Ring. The QALO Q2X is the toughest silicone ring on the market able to withstand -75F and 575F!

It is the perfect ring to wear when cooking over the fire because it is non-conductive so it won’t transfer those temperatures from the ring to your hand. I have been wearing mine for the past 4 years and absolutely love it!

For all my fire cooking friends, you definitely need to check out this QALO Q2X now.

Next, we’ll grill the pinwheels! To do so, preheat your grill to a high heat of around 400ºF for two-zone cooking. We’ll sear the pinwheels first, then pull them to the cooler side so they cook all the way through!

So, add the assembled pinwheels onto the hot side of the grill. Sear each side for about 1 minute to give them a nice crust all the way around, then move them over to the cooler side of the grill. Let the pinwheels cook for 10-15 minutes or until they’re an internal temperature of 120ºF.
