The original cheese-steak sandwich is believed to have its roots in 1930s Philadelphia. This low-carb version, the cheesy hot steak wrap, substitutes a tortilla wrap for the bun — but it still has all the flavor!

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 8 minutes

Yield: 4 wraps

1/2 clove garlic

1 yellow onion

4 green peppers

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 pound thin-sliced deli roast beef

1/4 cup Italian salad dressing

4 low-carb whole-wheat tortillas

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  1. Finely mince the garlic.

  2. Chop the onion.

  3. Remove the stems and seeds, then slice the green peppers.

  4. Place the olive oil in a heavy skillet.

  5. Over medium heat, add the garlic, salt, and pepper, stirring to mingle the spices with the olive oil.

  6. Add 1/4 cup onion and 2 cups green pepper.

  7. Cook until the peppers are crisp-tender.

    This should take no longer than 5 minutes.

  8. Add the roast beef and salad dressing to the skillet, mixing well.

  9. Cook until the roast beef is heated through, about 3 minutes.

  10. Spoon 1/4 of the beef mixture evenly down the middle of each tortilla.

  11. Sprinkle each tortilla with 1/4 cup cheese and roll them up.

    Make sure to work quickly because the heat from the beef mixture makes the cheese melt inside your wrap.
