Roast Beef Lettuce Wrap Recipe

Spread the love
Starting out with lettuce, cucumbers and mayonaise

This ketogenic lunch utilized leftovers from my pot roast dinner last night as well as some fresh vegetables.  I started out by washing two leaves of lettuce and overlapping them. One thing that I did with the romaine was to bend the stalk in a few places, so that I could roll the ingredients that were inside the wrap.  This actually turned out to be really helpful.

I spread mayonnaise on top of the lettuce and added some thinly sliced cucumbers that I had on had.

Next, I sliced some roast beef, tomatoes, red onions and added some avocado. I tried to keep the ingredients as thin as possible to make rolling it easy.

The rolling of it was tricky. I won’t lie. It isn’t like stuffing it into a tortilla. Lettuce tends to break easier than tortillas and not fold quite as easily, but it did work!

The rolled product.
The final product. It tasted great!
Adding in the tomato, roast beef, avocado and red onions
It rolled up!

One thing that did help was I used a paper towel to wrap around it so that it wasn’t as messy.

Ingredients:

  • 2 leaves of Romaine lettuce
  • 3 slices of roast beef
  • 4 slices of cucumber
  • 1 slice of red onion
  • 1/4 avocado sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions: Lay the lettuce flat on the cutting board. Spread mayonnaise over the lettuce. Add the veggies and the roast beef. Roll the lettuce and other ingredients together. Wrap a paper towel around it to make eating it easier! Enjoy!

  1. Hi Melinda, oh my word, this looks amazing! I’m a low-carber and this has given me some new inspiration! I get lazy and just boil an egg or make an omelette – which can get old really fast if you do it everyday lol <3

  2. Hello Melinda. That looks amazing and easy to make I will be giving that one a try for sure.
    Thank you so much,

  3. Your post left me hungry! It looks pretty delicious and I think that the most difficult part is what you state, the rolling. Nevertheless, I will surely try it when I have roast beef again. I would love to see your YouTube channel if you can leave me a link. Thank you!

  4. Mmmm. Nom, Nom. I love the presentation. It makes the food looks so appetizing. And, since my diet mostly consists of vegetables and carbs, there’s lots here for me.
