From Better Homes & Gardens New Dieter's Cookbook (p 230). This is another fabulous recipe you'd never guess was diet-food. The chestnuts give it a pleasant crunch, while the sauce nicely compliments the beef and spinach. The analyzer claims this contains alcohol, but it does not (unless you're using a type of teriyaki sauce I've never seen; I couldn't find my brand in here and didn't have a bottle to add as a custom food. I'll edit later.)

Recipe Ingredients for Teriyaki Beef Spirals

20 oz Laura's Lean Steaks Flank Steak
1 cups Spinach
4 oz Water Chestnuts
2 oz Green Onions
1/4 cup Teriyaki Sauce (low-sodium)

Recipe Directions for Teriyaki Beef Spirals

  1. Preheat broiler. Remove stems from spinach leaves. Layer leaves on top of each other; slice crosswise into thin strips. In a medium bowl, combine spinach, water chestnuts, thinly sliced green onions, and 2 tablespoons of the teriyaki sauce.

  2. Trim fat from steak. Score both sides of steak in a diamond pattern by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals. Place stead between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Working from center to edges, use the flat side of a meat mallet to pound the steak into a 12x8-inch rectangle. Remove plastic wrap. Sprinkle steak lightly with salt and pepper.

  3. Spread spinach mixture over steak. Starting from a long side, roll rectangle into a spiral. Starting 1/2 inch from 1 end, secure with wooden toothpicks at 1-inch intervals (tip: soak the toothpicks in water first to prevent them burning in the broiler). Cut between toothpicks into 10 pinwheels. (The recipe calls for putting pinwheels onto long skewers; we skip this step and just use the toothpicks.) Brush with some of the remaining teriyaki sauce.

  4. Place pinwheels on the rack of an unheated broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 12 to 14 minutes or until medium doneness, turning once and brushing with teriyaki sauce halfway through broiling time. (Tip: 12-14 minutes under our broiler will give you cremated steak, not medium! Keep a VERY close eye on these as they're cooking to ensure they don't come out overdone.) Discard any of the remaining teriyaki sauce. Remove toothpicks and (if used) skewers.
