Beef Roll-Ups (Low-carb)
Recipe: Beef Roll-Ups (Low-carb)
This is a recipe that can made by a supervised child or a helper. It's just assembly work. Your time is then freed up to work on the other things. It took me about 30 minutes to do 30 rolls.
Makes 12 pieces
12 slices of deli roast beef (Have the deli counter person slice it fresh for you. Tell that person you want it thin but no tears in the meat so it will stay together. You can even look for special beef variations, e.g., rare-roasted marinated beef. Your choice.)
1/2 cup wasabi sauce. (The sauce, not straight wasabi horseradish. Sauce is milder.)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 red onion sliced thinly, and then cut slices in half crosswise to make strips
1-1/2 cups gorgonzola cheese crumbles
Stir the wasabi sauce and the mayonnaise together in a bowl. Lay out a single slice of your beef. Spread with one teaspoon of the wasabi sauce. This doesn't have to be spread across the whole slice of beef. Just spread in the middle. Sprinkle on a heaping teaspoon of gorgonzola crumbles. Put three or four thin pieces of onion in the middle. Now roll up like a cigar. Keep tight enough so it stays rolled when you set it down.
One creative thing I did was to serve the rolls in a bowl instead of on a platter. Just set them along the rim of a shallow bowl (like a pasta serving bowl). You can do more than one row of rolls of different flavors. For extra color, place a bunch of parsley or a combination of herbs in the middle.
