We had these for dinner yesterday. They were yum so I'm posting them here. One of my resolutions was to try new recipes in my household. You guys reap the benefits of the best ones!
Serving size: 1 wrap filled with 1/2 cup beef, 1 slice cheese, lettuce, tomato slices, ketchup, and mustard.
Approximate nutritional information:
Calories: 329 * Carbs: 21 * Fat: 15 * Protein: 32 * Fiber: 9
1 pound ground beef (I used 93/7 organic grass fed beef)
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon grated parmesan
1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
5 100 calorie wraps (I use Flatout Wraps)
5 slices sharp american cheese (I use Land o Lakes)
2 roma tomatoes, sliced
1 cup of romaine lettuce
Additional ketchup (optional)
Step 1. In a medium to large skillet coated with cooking spray cook the beef on medium till almost cooked through but still a little pink (about 7-10 minutes). Break beef up as it cooks.
Step 2. Add worcestershire, ketchup, grated parmesan, dried onion flakes, salt, and pepper to the beef. Mix together until thoroughly combined.
Step 3: Continue cooking until beef is cooked all the way through and is no longer pink.
Turn on indoor grill to 350 or you can also use a grill plan.
Step 4. In the center of the wrap place a slice of cheese and 1/2 cup of the beef mixture. Add tomato and lettuce. Then if you are using , and I highly recommend you do, add some ketchup and mustard.
Step 5. Roll the wrap and place seam side down on grill. Once there are nice grill marks turn over. Grill for another 2-3 minutes then remove.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the rest of the wraps.
Freezer instructions: The beef mixture can easily be made ahead of time and frozen. Follow steps 1-3, cool slightly, then put into freezer bag or container for the freezer.
Reheating instructions: Take out night before or day off and thaw in the refrigerator. Warm up in microwave then follow steps 4 and 5.
Special note: I love using my indoor grill to make these wraps. However, if you don’t have one that is fine. You can still enjoy these wraps without grilling them. I do not recommend using an outdoor grill because if the wraps come apart a little they may be hard to manage.
Extra season the meat with lawreys, garlic powder, extra salt and pepper.
Use shredded cheese
Instead of 100 calorie wraps use tortilla shells that were cheap this week at Meijer.
Use shredded head lettuce *cheaper and better texture for the wrap*
We also left out the ketchup and added mayo and bacon to ours (family preference)
