Simple Stir-fry Beef Wraps
- 2 cups of Wheat flour
- 1 tsp of Salt
- 0.5 tsp Baking powder
- 2 tlb Lard
- 0.75 cups Water
- 300gms boneless sirloin strips, (trim of visible fat)
- 0.5 Black pepper
- 1 Tbsp Soy sauce
- 0.5 tsp Garlic powder
- 0.5 tsp Ginger powder
- 1 Tbsp Corn or olive oil
- 3/4 Glass of Beer or Wine
- Salt to taste
- A mix of your favourite thinly sliced vegetables. For this recipe, Onion, Cabbage, Grated Carrots, and various coloured bell peppers were used.
- Choose between Ketchup, Mustard, Mayonnaise or Chilly sauce depending on what you like best!
- In a mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Add in the lard to the flour mix and using your hands rub together until crumbly in texture. Add in the water a little at a time while needing the dough until you get a smooth soft dough. Set aside to rest for 30 minutes.
- Once rested, divide the dough into 12 small balls. Roll out the balls into thin circles and cook on hot pan on medium heat until slightly brown spots appear on both sides. Place the tortillas in a bowl wrapped in kitchen towel to keep them warm and soft.
- Mix the marinade ingredients and add in the beef strips. In a large non-stick pan coated with cooking oil, sauté the beef strips and marinade juices until meat is no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
- Top each tortilla bread with equal amounts of the salad mix. Divide the beef strips among each wrap and sprinkle with cilantro. Spoon your favourite sauce over top.
- Wrap to serve as a sandwich or serve open-faced.
- The tortillas tend to dry out and harden very quickly, keep them most or cook the tortillas when you are just about to serve the food.
- You can substitute the beef with chicken or do away with it altogether for a vegan option.
- If time allows let beef marinade overnight
- Remember to wrap everything using airtight Cling Film and refrigerate. Bacteria is not your friend.
- Because of the meat, avoid rewarming the wrap more than once. Again, bacteria is not your friend.
- Once the wraps are done, they can keep in the fridge for up to 3-5 days. Any longer and you’ll consequently have to learn hard way that bacteria is NOT your friend.
