Excellent. It was a huge hit at the cottage and easy to pre-marinate the meat at home and bring in a baggie, all ready to throw on the BBQ. Stephanie

This recipe was great !!! I didn't follow it exactly because I didn't have all the ingredients. I used ground beef and left out the mint leaves and cilantro. I also didn't use the tortilla wrap but served the meat with rice vermicelli. I garnished it with some crushed peanuts as well. My husband absolutely loved it!!! So did I :)

This was SO good!!! the only change I made was I left out the mint because I don't like it, but other than that I love this recipe. Thanks!
