Red Chard, Feta, & Filet Strip Pinwheels


One of my favorite things to make for dinner are pinwheels; in one bite you get the meat, cheese, and in this case greens. I started experimenting with pinwheels after I made chicken cordon bleu for the first time in high school. Typically, I use either steak or chicken and on the occasion I will throw a turkey breast in there too. Tonight for dinner I made red chard, feta, & filet strip pinwheels.


I started out by quickly steaming the red chard and putting it off to the side. I like trying different types of greens when making pinwheels. When I'm at the grocery store I usually grab whatever looks the freshest and go from there.



Depending on the green I choose and my mood, the cheese varies. Tonight I decided to go with feta.

I love cooking on the grill, but when I can't do that I use my Circulon Grill Pan (love Circulon!). Season the pinwheels with your favorite spices, I used salt, pepper, & a little garlic salt. After browning the steak all over, remove it from the pan, and set aside. In a separate pan I melted a little butter or olive oil & garlic, browned that, and then added some wine (use whatever you like) and scallions.


I put the steak in the wine reduction for two minutes, flipped the pinwheels, and then left them in for two more minutes. Remove and plate it immediately.

Ingredients:
  • feta cheese
  • red chard
  • filet strip
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic salt
  • fresh garlic
  • wine
  • butter/olive oil
  • scallions
I paired the meal with freshly steamed broccoli and a garlic risotto.
