Steak, Blue Cheese, Veggie Wraps

| 37 Comments

Steak and Blue Cheese.  Need I say more?  Back in the day, a juicy steak topped with melted blue cheese was all the rage!  And the combo is just as good today in an everyday sandwich like these Steak, Blue Cheese, Veggie Wraps.

These fun and tasty sandwiches are based on a recipe from the promotional cookbook “Our All-Time Favorites: Fabulous and Nutritious Lean Beef Recipes” that I received (multiple copies of) at Beef Council Events. Today, in my best “can I add a vegetable to this?” mode, I healthied up my Steak, Blue Cheese, Veggie Wraps by adding sliced peppers.

Now steak may not seem like something you pop into an ordinary sandwich (even on a holiday weekend) but I have a secret for you.  If you can find sirloin tips, you can do it at a bargain price.  Sirloin tips are strips of sirloin that were trimmed off of larger cuts and are discounted as a result.  But if you are going to cut up a steak anyway, like for Beef Stroganoff or Steak, Blue Cheese, Veggie Wraps, sirloin tips are perfect!

These sandwiches are quick and easy to make, in addition to being tasty and fun!  Just season the meat & stir fry, then serve with crumbled blue cheese, tortillas and your choice of toppings.  We enjoyed our Steak, Blue Cheese & Veggie Wraps with two colors of raw (remember this is easy) peppers, tomatoes, onions & lettuce.  steak-blue-cheese-wrap-served

As I mentioned, I ended up with a couple extra copies of the Our All-Time Favorites Beef Cookbook from different Beef Events, so I am going to make these available to two (twice the opportunity!) hungry readers in a giveaway.  IMG_1423

  2. You can use low calorie blue cheese dressing instead of crumbled blue cheese if you want to reduce calories further.
