Ingredients:  
2/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
2 cups boiling water
1 lb flank steak, trimmed of fat
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tbsp light herbed cheese spread, such as Boursin
1 cup baby spinach
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat grill to high. Place sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl; pour boiling water over them and let steep until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain and chop.

Meanwhile, place steak between 2 large pieces of plastic wrap. Pound each side of the steak thoroughly with the pointed side of a meat mallet until the steak is an even 1/4 inch thickness.

Rub garlic all over one side of the steak. Spread cheese lengthwise in a 3 inch strip down the middle of the steak. Top with the sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Starting at one edge of a long side roll the steak up tightly, tucking in the filling as you go.

Carefully rub salt and pepper all over the outside of the steak roll. Turn the roll so the overlapping edge is on top. Push 8 skewers, evenly spaced, through the roll, close to the overlapping edge to hold the roll together. Slice the roll into 8 equal portions, roughly 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick, with a skewer in each. Lay the slices on their sides and push the skewer through so it sticks out about 1 inch.

Oil the grill rack. Grill the pinwheels 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Use a spatula when turning them to prevent too much filling from falling out. (Don't worry if the ends of the skewers burn. They will still hold the pinwheels together.) Remove the skewers; let the pinwheels rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Personal Notes:
For a party arrange these festive wheels on a platter atop a bed of spinach.

The steak can be prepared ahead of time. After rolling up the steak tightly, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 6 hours. When ready to grill, proceed with the step of rubbing with salt and pepper and pushing in the skewers.
