Food Challenge: Steak Wraps With A Middle Eastern Twist

Its still holiday season, and I finally have time to go in the kitchen and cook!

Also, my mom and sister are away on holiday, my little sister’s at her friend’s house and my dad went fishing, which has left me home alone to do as I please, :-).

I love experimenting with dishes, especially ones I haven’t made before.

Recently I’ve been looking at a lot of Middle Eastern recipes (and doing a fair bit of drooling while viewing the photos), which look absolutely delicious!

So this is what I did:

Please note: the quantities I made was for 2 servings.

I began with marinading a piece of rump steak, cut into strips, with:

1tsp crushed chillies (optional, I love hot and spicy food)
1tsp crushed garlic
1tsp coriander
1tsp cumin
2tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

All mixed in a bowl and I let the steak marinade for about an hour.

I then chopped an onion and fried until semi caramelised. (You could caramelise it but I was starving and had no patience.)

I bought ready made Tortilla Wraps ( yes I know.. Its cheating but seriously, who has time to make them from scratch these days?)

I also bought a small jar of Hummus.. (Ok this I admit I have the ingredients but had never tried making it before…shall try soon, God willing.)

The steak, once marinated, was fried in the same pan as the onions for added flavour.

To assemble:

Take a tortilla,spread with hummus, add some onion, then place steak strips and a little chopped coriander (optional).
Now roll, slice and serve.

Yum! πŸ˜›

I’m guessing it could be made with some ciabatta or small french bread loaves as sandwiches. Maybe add some lettuce and tomato or cucumber slices to it. Or even grilled cherry tomatoes..
I suppose one would only be limited by the ingredients on hand, but give it your own twist if you’d like and let us all know by commenting.

Happy cooking πŸ™‚

(Apologies for the huge photo.. It just didn’t want to be resized..)
