    These wraps have become a family favorite! The recipe is turned out perfect the first time I tried it and the flavor is incredible. They're light, filling, and great for the waistline.

    I was so excited in making this dish and trying it. The fun part here is mixing them in parts, rolling it and eating it with my fingers.Totally different from the usual way of eating. DH preferred not to use his hands though and just eat them separately with chopsticks.Even so, he said it was very good and very healthy.The lettuce and cucumber was crunchy,the mint from our garden's fresh and the beef's tasty.Easy to prepare too!We also had this with Recipe #58896 and brown rice.Boy,I felt I was in heaven!lol I'll be making this again!Thanks,Jewelies!

    This was okay, but not exceptional. Nice change of pace though.

    These are fabulous! I made these for dinner tonight and served with potstickers. They are actually very easy to make and they are so delicious and refreshing for a summer meal. My kids even liked them - I think they like wrapping the filling in lettuce and eating with their fingers. I left the pepper and cucumber out of their rice noodles as they don't care for them. You could easily marinate the beef in the sauce in advance to make prep a little quicker. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
