Gourmet Roast Beef Rollups

From The Biggest Loser Cookbook


These rollups are a great appetizer to take to a party. Not only will you look like a star for bringing such attractive, tasty food, if everything else is fried (it's happened to me a lot!), you'll have something to munch on—you'll be setting yourself up to avoid unhealthy food without starving. Just be sure you use roast beef that's been shaved or is very thinly sliced; otherwise the tortillas will tear when you roll them. The chili garlic sauce is availalbe in the International aisle of most major grocery stores with other Thai-type ingredients. If you can't find it, subbing in chili paste is okay, too.

  • Makes 1 serving
  • 1 whole wheat flour, 96% fat-free tortilla (8" diameter)
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free cream cheese
  • ¼-½ teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • Scant ¼ cup roasted red bell pepper strips
  • ¼ cup loosely-packed chopped fresh basil leaves
  • ¾ cup (3 ounces) shaved Rosemary Grilled London Broil or other lean, low-sodium deli roast beef

Place the tortilla on a cutting board. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and chili garlic sauce to taste. Stir to mix well. Spread the mixture evenly to the edges over about two-thirds of the tortilla. Top the cream cheese mixture with the pepper strips, basil, and roast beef. Starting at the filled end, roll the tortilla tightly into a tube, being careful not to tear it.

Space 8 toothpicks evenly across it and poke them into the tube so they go through and touch the cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut between the picks to make 8 pieces. Pick one piece and push the toothpick through so that the roll is evenly spaced in the center of it. Repeat with the remaining pieces. Arrange, spiral side up, on a serving plate. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 6 hours.
