Thai Beef Rolls

Thai Beef RollsBusy? We were snowed in this weekend, the stuff started coming down on Thursday and by the time things were over Saturday morning I couldn't take my van out without getting stuck.

But it was actually kind of nice, once everyone was safe inside together I liked how cozy it felt and we played games and ate too much.

So we've been keeping on the "down low" as they say, just enjoying the winter and holiday and pretending that we don't have to go back to work tomorrow.

Here's my recipe for the week, these little sandwich wraps are easy and tasty. The only thing would be to make sure you make enough of the sauce because they're really good with the sauce drizzled on them. I bet you could even substitute the beef for leftover turkey if you wanted to give it a try. Couldn't be bad, could it?

1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 to 1 tablespoon finely minced ginger, depending on how hot you like it
2 teaspoons fish sauce
3/4 teaspoon sugar
4 10-inch flour tortillas
8 thin slices roast beef
2 cups shredded cabbage
1/2 cup julienned carrots

Combine the first six ingredients to make the dressing.

On each tortilla liberally brush some of the dressing then spread two slices of roast beef then divide the shredded cabbage and carrots between the the four tortillas. Serve with extra dressing if desired.

As much as I dread the coming onslaught of snow, I must admit that being snowed in for a few days sounds absolutely divine!

Snowed in already? Glad you're keeping safe. These rolls look delectable!

This looks like a great little recipe to try. I love snow days, especially the ones that aren't quite predicted properly. Here in the midwest, they can predict 5" of snow and we may end up with 11"! Great time for experimenting with recipes.

Those look delish! Jealous of all the snow - my daughter who is 6 has never even seen snow:(

We woke up to a light dusting of snow too!

This recipe looks delish! Unique way of using Roast Beef. And easy too. Thanks.

These look delicious! We usually have tortilla shells in the house. I could make this work, and it would be more fun than sandwiches.

Snowed there already? Keep safe!
Those beef rolls looks so delicious! I want to try it so I can taste something new here in my pad. Thanks for sharing!

This is so strange, but for the first time in my life I have a bottle of fish sauce in the fridge. My in-laws bought it when they visited for Thanksgiving. I wondered how long it would languish in there. Now I have a way to use it! :)

Interesting that Thai people don't typically eat beef, but we are enjoying their spices and ways to make some great things with beef also. Looks good. I think I'll make it this week--then again, all of your recipes are good!
