I love the juxtaposition of the soft slightly salty meat wrapped around the fresh crunchy vegetables then the creamy dipping sauce. We loved these colorful little bites.
Asian Roast Beef Roll Ups with Dipping Sauce
1/2 c very hot water
1/3 cup sugar
2 tbs almond butter
1/4 c fish sauce
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tbs rice vinegar
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, grated
1/2 to 1 tsp red pepper flakes
In a blender or Magic Bullet, combine all the ingredients.
Blend until smooth and creamy.
Measure out 1/3 cup of dipping sauce for making the roll ups and reserve the remainder.
1 lb thinly sliced lean roast beef (check your brand for gluten & dairy)
1/3 cup dipping sauce
2 medium carrots, julienne
1 cucumber, julienne
1 red bell pepper, julienne
1 small bunch green onions, julienne
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Separate the slices of roast beef and marinate in the dipping sauce.
Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables.
Assemble the rolls by placing a few pieces of carrot, cucumber, red bell pepper, green onion and cilantro toward the center of a piece of roast beef.
Roll the roast beef around the vegetables.
Secure the roll ups with tooth picks in bite sized segments then cut on a diagonal.
Serve roll ups with extra dipping sauce.
