Thai Beef Rolls

Thai Beef Rolls(Adapted from CL)

1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons fish sauce
3/4 teaspoon sugar
4 - 8" tortillas
2 cups torn Boston lettuce
12 ounces thinly sliced deli roast beef
1/2 cup matchstick-cut carrots
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint

In a small bowl, whisk together, lime juice, oil, grated ginger, garlic, fish sauce and sugar.

Set tortillas on a cutting board and brush lightly with 2 teaspoons juice mixture on each tortilla. Arrange 1/2 cup lettuce on each tortilla and then top each with about 3 ounces beef. Arrange carrots and mint over each serving. Drizzle each with about 1 tablespoon of remaining juice mixture - roll up and cut with a serrated knife.


  1. Looks delicious! So, once you move, will the name of your blog change? Culinary on the Coast?

  2. We have brought this up before and I'm still not decided - it seems like a lot of work to change the name. I'm not sure it would make sense to be "in the desert" while we live in MD. I like your suggestion though!
