It was hard for me to cook for two when for so many years I was cooking for 6! Unfortunately Pa Lloyd doesn’t like leftovers so I have to be creative so he doesn’t know he’s eating leftovers. Today I made one of my favorite recipes using left over roast beef. I made these often when my Granddaughter Sam was staying with us, she liked to take them for a meal when she was working instead of a sandwich. They freeze well.
2 cups cooked roast beef ( thinly sliced strips)
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. dried oregano
12 corn tortillas
In skillet heat meat in 1 Tbsp. of hot oil, add red wine vinegar, chili powder, salt, garlic powder and oregano to meat, toss to coat, remove from pan and set aside. Wipe out skillet and add additional oil 1 inch deep, heat. Dip each tortilla in hot oil just til soft and limp, about 5 seconds, drain on paper towels. To assemble flautas, divide beef among tortillas, placing a few strips of meat at one edge of each tortilla, starting at filled edge, roll up tortilla tightly; secure with wooden tooth pick. Fry in hot oil til crisp or about 2 minutes, drain on paper towels. Serve warm, may serve with salsa and sour cream. You can use as an appetizer, snack, or make Spanish rice as a side dish and serve them as a main coarse.
Have a great week!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
