Happy Friday and salut to you. I was kind of excited to wake up this morning and start writing this post for you. I made this little sandwich wrap on Wednesday night after work and I have been thinking about it ever since. Remember on Wednesday I posted about the slow cooked braised beef and served it with the roasted cauliflower and sweet potatoes. Well I had two pieces of beef left over for the following day – and this is what I came up with.
I sliced the beef into pieces and warmed it back through in the frying pan but not without kicking it up a notch. A drizzle of honey, pinch of oregano and a squirt of fresh lemon were the extras that made the pan. After the beef was finished getting somewhat caramelized on the outside ( thanks honey) and moist and tender on the inside, I removed it from the heat and gasped at it for a few minutes.
Ok, I am ready to continue. I warmed up a couple of pitas in the oven, grabbed some tzatiki, some feta cheese and baby greens. The wrap was ready to assemble. As I starting laying out the wrap I could almost taste the flavor combination and was certain I would need two of these fellas for sure. Not too often do I say OMG after I take a bite of something but this wrap was a guaranteed 9/10.
- 2 Leftover Sirloin Steaks slow roasted, chopped
- 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. Honey
- 1/2 Tsp. Oregano
- Juice of half lemon
- Tzatiki sauce
- Pita bread
- Baby greens
- Feta cheese
- Preheat frying pan and warm beef with a little olive oil. As it is searing, add the honey, oregano and lemon juice. Continue cooking for 4-5 minutes over medium heat stirring often.
- Grab the pita bread and toss it in the oven to warm it through, maybe 3-4 minutes.
- Assemble the wrap – smear some tzatiki sauce, beef, feta cheese and baby greens.
- Run to the table and eat
Zesty Tip: In this particular case, I didn’t want the pita bread to get crispy. To prevent that you can rub a little water on the bread before placing it in the oven. This will act as a steaming mechanism and keep the bread from getting crunchy.
OK, I am going to head out here and prepare for the day. I hope you have a super friday and a good weekend. Not sure what is on the go this weekend but I will be back on Monday with something to EAT. Enjoy the weekend!
