  • 1 top round steak (1-1 1/4 pounds, cut into 4-5 flat steaks each about 1/8" thick measuring 4-5" wide by 10-12" long)
  • 1 teaspoon or more steak seasoning, divided
  • 8-10 deli slices of Havarti cheese (cut 1/8" thick)
  • 4 ounces thin sliced prosciutto, divided
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 1 pound log of fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 16-20 thin slices
  • 1 teaspoon EACH salt and pepper, divided
  • 1 teaspoon or more Italian Seasoning, divided
  • 8-10 Tablespoons snipped fresh sage leaves, divided
  • 1/3 cup BRIANNAS Asiago Caesar Dressing, plus more for drizzling
  • 5 tablespoons or more olive oil, divided
  • 2-4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley



  • Lay one piece of steak on a cutting board.
  • Sprinkle over each slice about 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon EACH salt, pepper, steak seasoning, and Italian seasoning.
  • Lay 2 slices of the Havarti cheese end-to-end on top of steak. (There may be an inch or so at each end of meat that is not covered.)
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of snipped fresh sage evenly over top of cheese.
  • Evenly divide slices of the prosciutto and spread one portion on top of cheese, covering as best as possible.
  • Starting at the bottom, roll up each steak and secure with toothpicks dividing into 4-5 portions.
  • Repeat process with remaining steaks.
  • Slice each steak with a sharp knife into 4-5 equal portions (about 1 inch each), making 4-5 pinwheels from each steak roll. Reinforce with more toothpicks if necessary.
  • In a small shallow bowl, blend 1/3 cup BRIANNAS Asiago Caesar Dressing, ½ cup sun-dried tomato pesto, and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Brush or dip each steak pinwheel rollup into the dressing to cover entire pinwheel.
  • Heat remaining oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat until oil simmers. Add steak rollups to pan and brown for about 2-3 minutes on one side. (May need to slightly lower heat here). Add more oil if necessary.
  • Turn steak pinwheel rollups over and put 1 round slice of the mozzarella cheese on top of each browned pinwheel. Put lid on pan and cook another 2-3 minutes until steaks are done and cheese is almost totally melted. Remove from skillet to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • Repeat process with all the steak pinwheel rollups until all are cooked. More oil may be added as needed to the pan.
  • Place the cooked steak rollups on a warm serving plate. Remove toothpicks.
  • Pour juices from pan over pinwheels. Garnish with fresh parsley sprigs and enjoy!
