Italian Roast Wraps


Guest Post by Laura from

I’ve learned four simple things about healthful eating:

  1. It is not as difficult as you might think.
  2. It is not as expensive as you might think.
  3. It is not as time-consuming as you might think.
  4. It is more delicious than you might think.

Really. I have a husband and four kids–four boys to be exact. We are a single income family and we eat a very healthful diet on a very tight budget. So I know from first-hand experience that it can be done and it can taste really yummy, too!

Recently on my blog I’ve been writing a series called High Five Recipes, featuring high quality recipes all using five ingredients or less. You would be amazed at the great dishes you can make using only five ingredients or even three ingredients. Of the recipes I’ve come up with to share so far not only are they healthy and simple, but many of them only take five minutes to prepare.

Here’s one of our favorite High Five Recipes: Italian Roast Wraps. These are so flavorful and juicy. However, if you were looking forward to seeing a five-ingredient recipe which only takes five minutes to prepare you may be disappointed with this one. You see, this one only takes two minutes to prepare. Sorry about that.  🙂

Italian Roast Wraps

  • 2 to 3 pounds of frozen roast (beef, deer, or lamb)
  • 1/2 pouch Italian dressing mix (I use the Simply Organic brand.)
  • Whole wheat tortillas
  • Sour cream
  • Chopped fresh tomatoes

Place frozen roast in a crock pot. Sprinkle 1/2 pouch Italian dressing mix onto roast. Cook on low for 5 hours.

Shred meat or slice thinly. Spoon meat onto a warm tortilla and top with tomatoes and sour cream.  Wrap and eat! Served with a fresh fruit salad these Italian Roast Wraps are a great lunch or dinner.

Want to see more High Five Recipes? I have a whole category on my blog featuring these five-ingredient or less recipes including main dishes, side dishes, snacks, and desserts all using healthful ingredients here. Stop by and learn how simple healthful eating can be!

Laura blogs at Heavenly Homemakers, a site dedicated to encouraging women as they make their homes heavenly and strive toward their Heavenly Home. She shares about how she and her husband work to live simply, eat healthfully, spend wisely, and raise four boys (ages 4, 7, 9 and 11). The raising four boys part of her life is usually loud, busy, and full of lots of soccer balls and light sabers.

    I’ve enjoyed Laura’s recipes, including the high 5 ones too. If you haven’t visited you will want to stop by and check out her series on making your own cheese and bread — also not as difficult as you would think!

    Can’t wait to try the beef wraps!

    Just love Laura’s recipes. She makes eating healthy look so easy.

  • Honey says:

    I was looking for something for Sunday lunch and this is it! Looks delicious…thanks!

  • Lindsey says:

    I make one similar but I add a few beef cubes and a few pepperocini peppers (deseeded) and about a tbsp of juice from the pepper jar when I put it in the crockpot. I also use the zesty italian package instead of regular. We eat it on a hogie bun or with potatoes cut up added in with the meat at the last 1 or so. 🙂 My family call them “poor boys”

  • Jennifer says:

    Wow! These look absolutely delicious. I’ll bet the same meat recipe would be great for shredded beef sandwiches for a crowd too. I’ll certainly be checking out the rest of your recipes. Yum!

  • Lary Jonshan says:

    Sure! I am gonna try this anyhow.
