Cooking up your favorite restaurant-style Asian-inspired dishes at home might seem intimidating, but this recipe requires minimal effort. The secret to these yummy mini Asian beef wraps is the marinade. Once your beef cubes have been tenderised and flavoured in the marinade of soya sauce, sugar ginger, garlic and coriander, it will only take about 20 minutes to “wrap things up”!
The Asian-inspired marinade infuses the meat with the perfect sweet and savory taste. Add some salsa and crunchy coleslaw and you’ll be biting into a flavour burst of different tastes and textures. Delicious.
These mini beef wraps are perfect to serve as a starter before a main meal; grab-and-go lunches throughout the week or a crowd-pleasing addition to any snack platter. And if you are lucky enough to save a few, the mini wraps will make for tasty lunch box fare.
And, of course, nothing stops you from serving these mini Asian beef wraps as a main meal accompanied by some steamed white rice or egg noodles. Why not add a little “heat” by stirring in a some crushed red pepper flakes or chilli paste to make it your own? Enjoy!
