SO so good!   Made these yesterday.  I had a pretty tough looking flank steak. I pounded it with one of those meat hammers.  Mostly followed instructions but used Italian salad dressing instead of  dry spice mix only because I did not have any dry mix. Added other dry spices that I had on hand.  The liquid made things a little messy so I wrapped the uncut pinwheel in foil. Roasted it with foil on in a cast iron skillet in the oven.  The foil kept all the juices contained. This turned out so good. I served it with shirataki rice pouring the cooking liquid over the rice. So so good.  Will be doing this again. Easy and good.  The pounding of the steaks made the meat super tender.  This is something I would be proud to serve guest. Looked good and tasted good.


Sounds really yummy, thank you for the lovely feedback!


Those look delicious.  I think your temperatures are off, though.  Medium rare is usually 135 or 140F; medium is 145F; and well is 160 (what I call "well over-done" 😉.
I usually cook our steaks to about 130.  Since you're not searing both sides, though, maybe I'd cook it a bit more, but not over 145, and I'd probably take it out about 140, assuming it would carry over a bit.


Thank you Bob, I'll update that!
