  1. Looks delicious. The directions mention spinach, but he ingredient list does not. Which is right? Also, did you flatten the steak at all? The ones in my grocery store seem to thick to roll.

    1. The ingredient list is correct. The instructions have been updated. The steak should be butterflied so it is flattened to allow for rolling. This has also been updated. Thanks!

  2. Re: Southwestern Steak Pinwheelshttp://onceamonthmom.com/south…The spinach was not listed in the ingredient list nor in the directions except to name the “spinach mixture.” I’m looking forward to making this…it sounds delicious.Thanks for a great website!

  3. Just wanted to mention that the recipe card still shows spinach in the ingredient list AND directions ofr the June 2012 diet menu. But we are not supposed to use it right?

    1. Correct. This recipe post is correct. The original recipe source contained spinach but the adapted version did not. I will request the change be made to the recipe card ingredients and instructions.
