Spicy Beef Wraps

    20 minutes

    This is a great dish that I like to use as an entree but is equally good as a main. Beef mince is stir fried with spice then wrapped in a lettuce leaf to serve. Works well with other minces such as pork and chicken.

    Serves: 4 

    • 250 beef mine
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 red capsicum, finely diced
    • 1 red onion, finely diced
    • 2 sicks celery, finely diced
    • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
    • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
    • 1 pinch ground coriander, to taste

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a frypan cook the meat until brown. Drain off all the excess fat. Reserve the meat.
    2. Heat the butter in the frypan and lightly fry the capsicum, onion, celery and sunflower seed.
    3. Add the cooked beef, spices and soy sauce then stir in until blended.
    4. Peel off 4 large leaves from the lettuce, rinse and shake dry. Spoon in the meat mixture and gently roll up the leaf length ways.
    5. Tie up the roll with a couple of long chives and knot or bow.
    6. Serve immediately as the meat will go cold quickly and the lettuce will wilt from the heat.

    Not bad. I thought the over all flavor was lacking something but I'm not quite sure what (sesame oil maybe?). I wasn't overly keen on the pine nuts and celery. This was ok for a change but isn't something I'd make again. Thanks anyway!  -  23 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Made as written except I left out the pine nuts due to personal preference and added chopped water chestnuts instead. I too felt the recipe as written lacked something so after tasting it I added some sesame oil and Sriracha which bumped the flavor up a notch. Good base recipe just needs some amping up,  -  21 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
