Beef Sirloin Steak Wraps

It is not very often we eat Sirloin cuts of beef - they are most definitely a treat.

For such a simple meal, I love this as there are a variety of flavours all combining to produce an explosion of flavours. Today I had some lettuce to hand. On other occasions I have added diced cucumber, spring onion, red pepper instead of tomato, rocket instead of lettuce, red or white onions. The options are endless. What binds them all together nicely is the soured cream and houmous.

Out local supermarket sells thin cuts, hence they are so much cheaper than a standard sirloin. But as the cuts are not so chunky, our children find them really easy to eat. Add to the fact they are not as tough to chew as rump or frying steak, and taste delightful, it is no surprise that everyone fights over it at the dinner table !
