Steak And Potato Wraps

Serves 4


  • ¾ lb. sirloin steak
  • 1 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and grated
  • ¹⁄³  cup sour cream
  • 1 whole jarred roasted red pepper
  • ¼ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp. fresh thyme
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 4 whole-grain wraps

Season steak with salt and pepper. Heat two teaspoons oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place steak in pan and heat for about eight minutes for medium doneness, flipping steak several times during cooking. Let steak rest 10 minutes and thinly slice. If needed, add more oil to skillet and reduce heat to medium. Place sweet potato in skillet and heat, stirring often, until tender, about three minutes. Remove from skillet and let cool. Place one tablespoon oil, two tablespoons water, sour cream, roasted red pepper, sun-dried tomato, thyme and black pepper in a blender container and blend until smooth. If needed, blend in additional water, one tablespoon at a time, to help reach a smooth consistency. To assemble wraps, place spinach on the bottom half of wraps and spread sauce over greens. Top with steak and sweet potato, then tightly roll.
