Father’s Day is THIS SUNDAY! Do you know what you’re doing for dear ol’ dad? I feel like Father’s Day really snuck up on us this year! Or maybe that’s just me…probly so.
If you still aren’t sure how to show dad you love him, let me give you a hint: FOOD. Ya know that saying about a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach? That phrase definitely has some credence. For a successful Father’s Day meal, you’ll want to fix a dish that has these characteristics: 1) MEAT 2) GRILL 3) BIG PORTIONS. Stick to those 3 traits, and you should definitely have one satisfied dad after dinner is over.
Now you could just throw a big, honkin steak on the grill, and that would definitely be quite alright. But if you want something that’s a little more unique with some big, bold flavor. I highly recommend these feta & red pepper steak pinwheels. Each ingredient really adds so much to the steak and the combo of flavors is just incredible! They’re easy to put together too. Just flatten some flank steak, top with feta, spinach, basil, and roasted red peppers, and then roll tightly. Grilling them was a little tricky as they tried to unroll, but just use ample toothpicks to keep them in place, and you’ll be fine.
Happy Father’s Day, everyone! If your dad likes to cook, I have a great gift idea for him too! Go to eMealsand subscribe for a meal plan! Your dad will get great recipes like this one each week! There are lots of meal plans to pick from with great variety!
- 1 lb flank steak
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt

- 1⁄2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1 (6-oz) package fresh baby spinach
- 1⁄4 cup fresh basil leaves
- 1 (7-oz) jar roasted red peppers, drained
- Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
- Place steak between 2 large pieces of plastic wrap; pound to 1⁄2-inch thickness. Sprinkle salt and pepper over steak.
- Layer cheese, spinach, basil, and roasted peppers over steak; roll up tightly starting from widest side.
- Secure steak with toothpicks at 1-inch intervals. Cut steak between skewers into 1-inch-thick slices (Should have 4 slices). Slide each slice onto a grilling skewer (remember to soak them in water first if they are wooden). Use additional toothpicks to keep meat and filling secure.
- Grill 3 to 4 minutes per side or to desired degree of doneness.
