Day 5 - Beefy Cream Cheese Roll-Ups

1/2 pound leftover cooked steak, rib roast, or other lean beef, cut into strips
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
4 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon chopped pitted green olives
1/2 tablespoon chopped pitted black olives
1/4 teaspoon dried sweet basil
ground black pepper to taste
8 large lettuce leaves (I used more like 16 leaves)
chopped fresh chives

I changed the order of this recipe around a little, so I'll just tell you how I did it.

First, mix together the mustard, cream cheese, salt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, olives, basil, pepper, and chives until smooth.

Divide the mixture into 8 parts, and spread on the lettuce leaves.
Then, lay down a meat strip or two.
And then roll up the lettuce leaf.  (Or just lay another one on top, like I did.)

Do the same with the rest of the lettuce leaves.

Mom - I LOVED the steak.  And it was a very nice, fresh way to present the steak.
Dad -  The sauce was really good, and all the different flavors went well together.


For dessert I served some sugar free strawberry jello that I made earlier today.
