Tag Archives: shredded lettuce


I cooked some beef yesterday in my slow cooker and wanted to do something different so we decided to use it in some rice paper rolls for tea tonight.

These are really delicious and we enjoy them almost as much as sushi rolls.

Here is No 2 daughter with the rolls and a Vietnamese dipping sauce that I like but it is a bit hot for some so they have soy sauce.
Here are the ingredients:

  • Rice paper wrappers
  • Roast Beef
  • Shredded lettuce
  • BBQ sauce
  • Rice (not pictured)

DSC_1025[1]We used sushi rice instead of noodles in these as we find noodles make them very hard to roll up where as the rice is slightly easier and stays together better.


We put the rice paper sheets into water to soften them, then placed them onto the bench. We added a spoonful of rice then some shredded beef and some BBQ sauce and lettuce.

We leave them sit for a few minutes before eating and they sort of stick together better.

We all enjoyed them for tea, they were yummy!!
