Beef & Spinach Rolls

This easy entree looks beautiful and tastes wonderful--
a perfect dish to serve to company.

Makes 4 servings

9 ounces lean boneless beef sirloin
3 cups packed trimmed, washed and dried fresh spinach leaves
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
3/4 ounce freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350o F. Slice beef horizontally almost all the way through;
spread open butterfly fashion. Place beef between 2 sheets of wax paper; with
meat mallet or bottom of heavy saucepan, gently pound until very thin.
Remove and discard wax paper; set beef aside. In large nonstick skillet,
heat 2 tablespoons water; add spinach. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring
occasionally, until wilted. Drain, discarding liquid; set spinach aside to cool.
Sprinkle beef on both sides with salt and pepper; place onto work surface.
Sprinkle beef evenly with cheese; top with cooled spinach. Starting from
shortest end, roll beef to enclose filling. Place medium cast-iron skillet over
medium-high heat; add beef roll, seam-side down. Cook, turning as needed,
1 minute, until browned on all sides. Transfer skillet to oven; bake 15 minutes,
until cooked through. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Slice beef roll
crosswise into 12 equal pieces; arrange on serving platter.
