Asian Beef & Broccoli Slaw Wraps & Get the Skinny on Lean Beef

Today's dinner inspiration comes from, well, having a freezer full of lean ground beef from the Natural Beef we just harvested. I like to prepare it as healthful as possible, easy is always a bonus too! Asian Beef and Broccoli Slaw Wraps Ingredients 1. 1 pound ground beef 2. 1/4 cup finely chopped onion 3. 1/2 teaspoon salt 4. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 5. 3 cups packaged broccoli or cabbage coleslaw mix 6. 1/4 cup hoisin sauce 7. 4 burrito-size (approx. 10-inch diameter) flour tortillas, warmed 8. Hoisin sauce (optional) Instructions1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef and onion; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Remove Drippings. Remove from skillet with slotted spoon; season with salt. Return beef mixture to skillet; stir in slaw mix and 1/4 cup hoisin sauce; heat through. 2. Spread 1/4 of beef mixture (approx. 1 cup) evenly over each tortilla, leaving 1-1/2-inch border on all sides. Fold right and left edges of tortilla over filling; fold bottom edge up over filling, then roll up tightly, jelly roll fashion. Place seam-side down on plates; cut in half, if desired. Serve with additional hoisin sauce, if desired.

Get the Skinny on Lean Beef Did you know there are 29 cuts of beef that meet the government labeling guidelines for lean? Many are cuts you are probably already eating, such as flank steak, T-Bone steak, and sirloin steak. According to government guidelines, a serving qualifies as "extra lean" if it has less than 5g total fat, 2g or less saturated fat and less than 95mg cholesterol per 3.5 oz. serving. A serving qualifies as "lean" if it has less than 10g total fat, 4.5g or less saturated fat and less than 95mg cholesterol per 3.5 oz. serving.
