If you struggle making wraps, please do take a look on Youtube. I'm as cack-handed as they come but once you know the technique, it's a doddle. As with all of our recipes, you can leave bits out of this or add in - the pineapple isn't necessary, but it does add a lovely contrast of flavours. Unless you're like me and slightly allergic.
As usual, we have worked out the calories via the NHS calorie check and your result may be different - different wraps and mince etc will result in a changed amount. Do make sure to work it out yourself or treat it as a rough guide.
400g of lean beef mince
four whatever wraps you use
two tablespoons of soy sauce
one red onion, half finely chopped, other half sliced into thin moons
one little gem lettuce
1 tsp of smoked paprika
1 tsp of chilli flakes
500g of sweet potato fries (we use McCain's Signature ones because we're so fancy it hurts)
1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper
four tablespoons of red wine vinegar
chill sauce for a drizzle inside if you want
pop your sweet potato fries into the oven and cook until crispy
pop the finely sliced onion into the vinegar - it'll take the tang away
pop off Sis
gently fry off the chopped onion and once softened, add the mince and cook until brown all the way through
whilst that's doing that, finely chop your lettuce and pineapple and keep aside
once the meat is browned, add the soy sauce, paprika, chilli flakes and pepper, give it a good mix and cook for a minute or two more until a bit sticky
once everything is ready, assemble - you want a pile of sweet potatoes, mince, chopped lettuce and pineapple drizzled with some chilli sauce
wrap up, eat them, enjoy
although we have used sweet potato fries (plain) in the recipe, eagle-eyed folks will spot that we have used our spicy, salty sweet potato fries in the photo - the next recipe reacharound will redo these, but for now, you can find the recipe for those here
