Cheesy Steak Pinwheels

As a child, I was always told not to play with my food. Little did they know that I would do that as an adult all the time! These Cheesy Steak Pinwheels are no exception to that rule.

  • 1 Beef Tenderloin center cut
  • 6-8 slices of Prosciutto
  • 6-8 slices of Provolone Cheese
  • 1.5 tbsp of Stone Ground Mustard
  • 1 tbsp of Coarse Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp of Black Pepper

Spicy Gremolata:

  • 2.5 tbsp of Chopped Parsley
  • 1 tbsp of Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp of Red Chili Flakes
  • 1 tsp of Jalapeno pureed or diced
  • 1 medium Lemon juiced


  • Begin by carefully filleting your beef tenderloin open until it is flat. It should be about ¼” - ½” thick. Once open, lather the inside down with the stone ground mustard then add a layer of provolone cheese and sliced prosciutto. Carefully roll the tenderloin back onto itself until it is back in its original shape. Add some wooden skewers into the rolled tenderloin making sure they are abou 1” apart from each other and that you skewer through the flap of the steak so that it does not easily roll open. Slice between each skewer to reveal individual steaks. Lather each steak with oil then season with salt and pepper.
  • In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the Spicy Gremolata. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Preheat your Oklahoma Joe’s Blackjack Kettle Grill to medium high heat (around 375F) for direct cooking.
  • Add your steaks to the grill to cook for about 3-3.5 minutes per side until the meat is 120F internal. Right before the steaks are done, top each one with the Spicy Gremolata. When the steaks are done, pull off and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Add some more gremolata if desired, pull out the wooden skewered, serve and enjoy!
