How To Make muffaletta pinwheel steaks

  • 1
    Heat a cast-iron griddle grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  • 2
    Unroll steaks on a large work surface and lightly pound if necessary to make the meat an even thickness, about 1/4- to 1/2-inches thick. Drizzle meat with EVOO and season both sides with salt and pepper. Top the meat with rosemary and chopped garlic, the olive-and-giardiniera mixture and then scatter a layer of parsley over the top using about 1 cup of parsley leaves per steak. Top the parsley with the shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, then single, slightly shingled, layers of prosciutto, coppa, Mortadella and provolone.
  • 3
    Carefully wrap and roll the steaks into large pinwheels. Tie the center of each steak tightly with butcher twine at the center then tie 2 more pieces of string on both sides of the center string, about an inch in from the edges. Cut each steak evenly, spacing your knife between the strings to form 6 pinwheels each about 1 1/2-inches thick and 4 inches in diameter.
  • 4
    Brush or spray meat with oil and grill 8-10 minutes turning once or until desired doneness. Grill lemon halves cut-side down for 2-3 minutes to caramelize. -
  • 5
    Douse pinwheels with grilled lemon juice and serve.
