Spicy Beef Wrap Recipe:

Recipe Type: Sandwich, Beef, Diet, Flour Tortillas
Cuisine: Southwest
Yields: 6 servings
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 8 min


1 pound beef top sirloin, 3/4 thick
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin

* Flour Tortillas - How To Make Flour Tortillas.


Preheat broiler in oven and set rack about 3 to 4 inches below heating elements.

Cut all visible fat from sirloin steak. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, oregano, and cumin. Rub the spice mixture over both sides of the beef and let stand for 15 minutes at room temperature.

Heat broiler; broil steak approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side or until done to your preference using a meat thermometer.

Rare - 120°F
Medium Rare - 125°F
Medium - 130°F

This is the type of cooking and meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking. I get many readers asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. Originally designed for professional users, the Super-Fast Thermapen Thermometer is used by chefs all over the world.

When the steaks are done to your liking, remove from oven, let sit 15 minutes before serving (meat temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees after it is removed from the oven). Slice steak across grain into 1/8-inch slices.

Warm tortillas according to package directions.

In a small bowl, combine the sour cream and horseradish. Spread 3 tablespoons of the sour cream mixture over the top of each tortilla. Top each tortilla with 1 cup of lettuce; sprinkle with chopped red onion and tomatoes. Divide beef into equal portions and top each tortilla with beef.

Fold one end of a tortilla up about 1 inch over filling then fold the left and right sides over the folded end, overlapping and serve.

Makes 6 servings.

Ingredient Options:
Substitute cooked and shredded chicken.
Substitute chopped fresh or roasted red, green, yellow, or orange bell peppers.
