Round Steak and Sausage Pinwheels

Round Steak and Sausage Pinwheels

Yield: 10 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 9 hours
Total Time: 9 hours 20 minutes

Round steak rolled up with sausage inside--fancy enough for any occasion


  • 2 1/2 lbs. tenderized round steak, about 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 pound hot or mild ground sausage (I use breakfast sausage)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs, soft or dried, seasoned or plain
  • 1/2-3/4 cup chopped onions (I like frozen)
  • 1 chopped red or green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes or 2 teaspoons bouillon concentrate
  • 1 tablespoon Kitchen Bouquet or Dale's Steak Sauce
  • bay leaf (optional)
  • 1 cups cold water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Meat juices left over from cooking meat


  1. Lay steak out on the counter. Cut into pieces about 4-5 inches wide and 7-10 inches long. This is very approximate.
  2. Layer sausage on top of steak using your hands to spread evenly to the edges.
  3. Sprinkle with bread crumbs, then onions, peppers, and parsley. End with a light shower of salt and pepper.
  4. Starting from narrow end, roll up steak and secure with toothpicks. (Count the toothpicks so you will know how many you need to pull out after steak is cooked.)
  5. Brown rolls in a large skillet, if desired, but this step is not absolutely necessary. Place in a crockpot (I always use a crock pot liner) or a large dutch oven or covered skillet.
  6. Combine water, bouillon, and Kitchen Bouquet. Pour over meat.
  7. Cover and place in oven at 325 degrees for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or cook in a crockpot for 7-8 hours. When tender, remove meat from oven or crockpot and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Remove toothpicks and slice. Set aside while you make gravy.


  1. Whisk water and cornstarch together. Add to juice from pot the meat was cooked in. Whisk well and cook until thickened. If there is not enough meat juice and gravy is too thick, you may have to add more water or beef broth to get a gravy-like consistency.
  2. Serve over steak rolls.


1. Alternate method for the gravy: Use a brown gravy mix from the store if you are not confident about your gravy-making skills. Use the juice from the cooked meat instead of water as called for on the package.

2. If the round steak has not been tenderized or is slightly thicker than a half inch, pound it with a meat tenderizer mallet.

The pinwheels look wonderful. I hope I feel ambitious enough to try them someday. But that is the greatest smile from sweet new granddaughter, Bridget! Loved your blog update. How wonderful it is to have sweet memories going back several decades of your kids growing up with their spouse. Special, indeed!

oh, what a precious baby and adorable smile!!! Congratulations on your newest bundle of joy! The celebration meal looks delicious! Is it just as tender cooked both ways? I am always happy to find a new company meal.

Lorraine, Yes, it is just as tender but requires a more watchful eye in the oven as it can dry out if cooked too long. Best to use a heavy, covered Dutch oven that won't lose much moisture. I almost always do it in my slow cooker.
