Beef with Blue Cheese Pinwheels

Looking for something distinct to serve for an appetizer.  This is quick, easy and exceptionally tasty with the sharp and salty oomph from the blue cheese.  And don't forget the green beens that makes these healthy,  right?  I shaped the above mentioned recently for a CAbi party that I hosted.  If you've never heard of CAbi clothing, you should check them out at I am a huge fan of their apparel.

1 1/2 pound Deli Roast Beef
4-6 ounces blue cheese
3/4 cup heavy cream, more if necessary
6 ounces green beans, trimmed
salt and pepper for seasoning


Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper.

In a food processor, combine blue cheese and heavy cream.  Process until mixture is smooth and spreadable,  adding more heavy cream if necessary.  Transfer mixture to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate.

Fill a medium bowl with ice and water.  Set aside.

Fill medium saucepan with water.  Bring to a boil.  Add 1 teaspoon salt and green beans.  Cook until color changes to bright green and beans are tender, about 2-5 minutes.  Transfer beans with a slotted spoon to ice bath.  Let stand until cool.  Remove beans from ice bath with slotted spoon and pat dry.  Set aside.

Divide blue cheese mixture among the slices of beef and spread thinly on each slice.  Roll up beef pinwheel style, place 3 beans in each.
