{eat this}

It's Monday. So far not a very productive Monday. But I'm working on it.
Over the weekend I tried my hand at "Balsamic Beef Wraps." I saw a picture on Pinterest (that didn't lead me to a recipe) so I decided to try and recreate the recipe myself.
I (very) thinly sliced carrots, bell peppers, and green onions. I wanted to use bean sprouts too but my local grocery store is no longer carrying them. Apparently they're a "health hazard"? Anyway, I also had some leftover cilantro that I thought would be awesome in these, but I forgot to add it. Go me. 
I bought a huge (HUGE!) hunk of beef at Sam's club and I sliced about six thin strips about the size of my hand. I threw the rest of the beef in the crock pot and made shredded beef. 
I soaked the beef strips in balsamic vinegar and a bit of olive oil while I sliced the veggies. Then I simply piled the veggies inside the beef and rolled. I secured the rolls with toothpicks and Phillip grilled them.
Boy were they good! 
I unrolled mine to eat it because it was just too fat to bite. Phillip managed to keep his rolled up. He's such a neat eater. ;)
Last night we took a lovely walk in the gathering storm. It was a tiny bit cold and windy but the clouds and views were totally worth it. 
We also worked a lot in our yard and went to see Star Trek, which was really good. 
How was your weekend? 


  1. I can't begin to tell you how hungry I am for grilled meat and veggies. This is going in my recipe list for this summer. It looked wonderful and made my mouth water. Iron Man 3 was on our weekend list, though, and unfortunately, no grilled anything thanks to the wind.....

  2. This looks delicious! I am so excited about it that I am pinning it to my pinterest board!
