The Steak Caesar Wrap
Need ideas for what to do with that leftover holiday roast? Looking for something on the healthy side after all that holiday gluttony? Here is the perfect healthy recipe for all your needs. The steak caesar wrap is a perfect change of pace after all those heavy holiday meals and a great way to rid yourself of that leftover steak or prime rib. This recipe is great whether you are trying to get rid of left overs or cooking up a nice quick meal out on the grill.
Caesar wraps are one of my favorite foods and I really love this recipe because it is a great way to use left over beef. It is also great to serve with a nice fresh filet because the filet is a juicy tender cut of meat that is so easy to take a bite into when wrapped around lettuce. That being said, if you use left over prime rib or rib eye for this recipe, make sure you trim the fat and gristle from the meat, otherwise, you may end up with a very chewy wrap.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can use any meat you like, shrimp, chicken, steak, ham, or even smoked salmon – it’s great with any of them. While I love the meats, I don’t particularly care for croutons in my wrap, but there are many people love them. Instead of croutons, I like to use olives in my Caesar wrap, either black olives or pitted Greek olives. You can get creative with different Mediterranean foods such as marinated artichoke hearts, tomato, feta cheese, or anything flavorful veggie that sounds good to you.
The trick to any good Caesar is two-fold. First, use fresh romaine hearts and second, use a quality Caesar dressing. I find that using a good Caesar salad dressing can make or break your wrap. Having old lettuce will always ruin any salad or wrap. I used canned olives for this recipe because fresh olives are difficult to come by. On the other hand, I used a fresh filet that I grilled up just for these wraps. Marie’s salad dressing is one of my favorites because it is creamy and has that Caesar flavor I expect. I also toss in some fresh grated Parmesan cheese for an extra zesty bite. It is absolutely delicious and you will want to make these delectable treats again and again.
