Sunday today and Fi and I were our for most of the day with the kids for a belated Children’s Day lunch celebration. It was a very yummy Japanese lunch too. We had more than enough and were still feeling stuffed till late evening.
It was going to be a light dinner night. We had some left over roast beef from the night before so it seemed like a good idea to make use of that.
“What to do with leftover roast beef?”, I asked Fi.
“How about beef wraps?”, she suggested. “Nice and light”.
Yes, great idea. I can always count on Fi for coming up with dinner ideas. She’s a walking menu planner.
All that I needed to do on a lazy Sunday for dinner prep was to slice the roast beef into bite-size strips and pan fry in butter with sliced onions, dice some tomatoes, get the shredded cheddar out from the fridge, and that’s it. I added some balsamic vinegar to the beef and onions while pan frying to get a little extra flavor and gravy.
Then take the pan off the heat and allow the beef to cool slightly.
Ready to wrap and roll. DIY style.
Beef wraps are also a great idea if you have a small party of people coming over for lunch or dinner. The novelty of preparing your own wrap is always a crowd favorite. And it’s so easy and quick to make. Serve with salsa and guacamole as sides.
