Another recipe found in TOH that I am posting for ZWT 6. Description states: The zesty marinade with a splash of fresh lime juice makes these slightly sesame-flavored wraps a treat. To speed prep time, use a 1-pound package of frozen onion and pepper mix.
- 1⁄4 cup lime juice
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons minced fresh cilantro
- 1 lb boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
- 1 large green pepper, julienned
- 1 large sweet red pepper, julienned
- 4 flour tortillas, warmed (8 inches)
- 2 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted
- In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour 1/3 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the beef. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 1 hour. Add salt and pepper to remaining marinade; cover and refrigerate.
- Drain beef and discard marinade. In a large nonstick skillet or wok coated with cooking spray, stir-fry beef until no longer pink; remove and keep warm. In the same pan, stir-fry onion and peppers until crisp-tender. Stir in reserved marinade. Return beef to the pan; heat through.
- Spread tortillas with cream cheese; top with beef mixture and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Roll up.
These steak wraps really hit the spot! Loved all the ingredients and the cream cheese was a nice addition. I substituted more red bell pepper and left out the green; otherwise, made everything according to the recipe. Great lunch or light dinner option. Will definitely make these wraps again.

This is really yummy! I love the Asian flavor. I cut the recipe in half and got 4 servings. This really does make a lot once it's altogether. The cream cheese adds a touch of creaminess. The beef was tender and the veggies crisp. Excellent recipe. Thanks for posing. :)
These were really good, and really simple. Though I didn't use the cream cheese, I just threw the steak/veggie mixture into the tortillas and went for it. Thanks for sharing!
