Asian Style Shredded Beef Wraps

Asian Style Shredded Beef Wrap

Serves 4 – 2 Prot, ½ Veg (without coleslaw and veggies to serve), ½ Fat (excluding CC from wraps(s)) per serving

400g beef cubes

100g chopped onions

10ml olive oil

½ tsp each – crushed garlic, ginger and chilies

A sprinkling of Chinese 5-spice

1tsp lime juice

 

Fry onions, garlic, ginger and chilies in olive oil until onions are soft. Add beef cubes, increase heat and fry for a few minutes to seal. Add rest of spices. Cook on very slow heat (you can use your slow cooker) until beef is very tender and easy to ‘shred’ with a fork. Top up with a little bit of water during the cooking process if needed.

Serve on a bed of lettuce (so that it doesn’t make the wrap too ‘soggy’) with a good dollop of Sweet Chili Sauce from allowance.

To serve: WL Wraps (1 = 1 CC), shredded cabbage/coleslaw mix, chopped spring onions, lettuce and Sweet Chili Sauce (Misc allowance)

Tuna Tzatziki Wrap

Another lunch!  Another wrap!  🙂

This time, after a tip from my friend Lucy-Ray – I decided to add tuna to one of my favourite sides – tzatziki! I love the fresh combination of cucumber, mint and yogurt.  And tzatziki is very versatile!  Great as a side to braaied (it is a South African thing!) chicken, pork or beef.  Haven’t combined it with fish before, so this was one of those experimental meals!  LOL!  And I think it was pretty successful!  🙂

Okay, first tzatziki:

1/2 grated cucumber, sprinkled with salt and left for about 30 – 60 minutes to get rid of the extra moisture.  I always leave it in a coriander to strain.  Squeeze out any excess water, make sure to get it all out  – with your hands is actually the easiest, or press it between 2 sideplates.

Next stir in about 100ml plain fat free yogurt, 1 tablespoon of grated onion, 1 finely crushed garlic clove, a small handful of finely chopped mint (dried mint works well), black pepper and my secret ingredient – a sprinkling of Aromat 🙂

Drain 1 tin of tuna (in brine).  It is very important to make sure all water is drained, otherwise the mixture gets very soggy.  Mix the tuna and tzatziki together – I added a few springs of finely chopped dill, and some salad onions.

And voila!  Leave in the fridge for a few hours for the flavours to mix.  I had it with the Weigh-Less Sundried tomato wraps, with some cherry tomatoes and lettuce.

Again, any filling that works well as a wrap filling can be served in pitas, on whole wheat bread or just add a handful of lettuce leaves, and you have a lovely, fresh and filling salad.

Fresh and yummy!

Curry and Apple Chicken Wrap

I love a good wrap!  Especially for lunch 🙂

When packing my lunch for work, I very seldom just throw everything together – I am not a fan of mushy, soggy food. Okay, few people are!  😛

Today, for example – I packed the wraps seperately, and the chicken mix, and the salad stuff (lettuce, cucumber strips, and chopped peppadews) also in a seperate divided container.

Yes, maybe a bit of a mission – but worth it, believe me! 🙂

This was the chicken curry (fake Coronation??) mix:

90g cooked chicken, chopped
1 small Granny Smit apple, chopped
2 small salad onions, chopped
30ml low fat mayo
1/2 teaspoon curry powder (mild)
Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare this the night before – for the flavours to develop 🙂

Quick and easy!
