Brisket Burritos

I had a chunk of leftover brisket in the fridge yesterday and made the best wraps fr our lunch with it.  Very filling and DEElicious.  Simple to make but pack a whole lot of flavor.  This is a GREAT way to use up leftover brisket (or steak if you ever have any of THAT leftover LOL).  And it’s ready in just 8-10 minutes!  This recipe is not suitable for Induction unless you sub in a flax wrap that is Induction friendly.  This is suitable for any Keto dietary plan in which the numbers below will fit into your daily allowance of carbs.

2 T. bacon grease

2 oz. onion, sliced thinly

1 oz. red bell pepper, sliced

1 oz. green bell pepper, sliced

2 c. cooked brisket, sliced thin

2 Joseph’s Flax and Oat Lavash bread sheets

4 slices mozzarella cheese, or about 4 oz. shreds

VARIATION:  Use cooked chicken in place of the brisket.

DIRECTIONS:    Slice all ingredients (except the bread and cheese, of course).  In a skillet, melt the bacon grease over medium-high heat and saute the onion until limp.  Add the peppers and continue stir-frying them until all are no longer crisp.  Add the brisket and turn heat to high.  If meat falls somewhat apart into shreds, not to worry.  Won’t be a problem in the taste arena.  Saute until the meat begins to brown a bit.  Lay the slices right on top of the meat mixture in the skillet (or sprinkle if shreds).  Place lid on skillet just long enough to melt the cheese.   Lift lid and spoon half the mixture in a line onto each wrap sheet about 3″ from the end.  Roll the end of the wraps snugly around the filling and cut each in half as shown on the left in the above photo.
