The recipe for green onion wraps is something I have not seen anywhere else, it’s not my original idea (a coworker at the prison’s girlfriend used to make them for him when her husband was out of town).
Whatever the source, these green onion meat wraps are great at parties and well worth making.
Even if I disagreed with my co-workers method of getting this recipe for this appetizer (sometimes known as a dried beef roll-up), I almost started rooting for the husband to go out of town, as these things are very good.
Functionally, they are a lot like my recipe for cowboy sushi. Which is to say they are a savory vegitable wrapped in sweet cream cheese and a meat. They also are something novel, which on first glance, seems to be questionable. However, like my sushi recipe, they are addictive once you try them.
This recipe is great tasting and both fun and easy to make.
Recipe for Green Onion Wraps
- Jar of dried beef (small 3 inch circles of sliced beef that are like an unflavored pepperoni/jerky)
- Softened cream cheese
- Bundle of green onions
- Cut the roots off of the ends of your green onions
- Place a large dollop of cream cheese on the center of a slice of dried beef
- Center the end of the onion on the slice of dried beef (perpendicularly) and wrap the beef around the onion end
Eat buy inserting the whole blob of beef in your mouth and biting the onion in two – it tastes extremely good…
Alternatively I have found this site which describes an alternate recipe (which is easier, but not prettier, way of doing a similar thing)…
Hope you enjoy this.
