Steak and Cheese Wraps
We’ve all been there, sitting down to plan out meals for the week, but having no inspiration for what to prepare. After perusing some cookbooks, blogs, or Pinterest, you finally resort to those recipes you know by heart and can prepare in your sleep. However, the more you make these recipes, the more lackluster they taste. We dietitians can definitely relate to that feeling, so we’re working hard to bring you recipe ideas that you can have on the table in 30 minutes or less, perfect for those times when you’re recipe searching. These simple, but tasty lettuce wraps really satisfy without making you feel stuffed.
The steak is flavorful, simply seasoned with just salt and pepper, but can easily be jazzed up with your favorite marinade or seasoning. Still missing those complex carbohydrates? Substitute the lettuce leaves with small corn or whole-wheat tortillas.
Not only is this recipe quick and super simple, it is very versatile and can easily be customized with your favorite veggies or cheese. Change up the toppings with fresh pico de gallo and cojita cheese, cherry tomatoes and crumbled blue cheese or your favorite peppers and pepper jack cheese.
Remember to let the steak rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting to retain the juices and to cut against the grain to increase the tenderness.
