    I like the idea.


    Now I'm thinking of grilled meat wrapped around more meat.


    There is a cut of meat called mutamba (sp?) which I think is the thin bit of meat around a cows stomach. Apparently it's used to wrap around diced meat, eggs, etc and then cooked like a roast.


    I'll have to ask the Italian butcher about it again...

    Grains (wheat/rice/oats etc) . . . . . Dairy (milk/yogurt/butter/cheese etc) . . . . . Nightshades (peppers/tomato/eggplant etc)
    Tubers (potato/arrowroot etc) . . . Modernly palatable (cashews/olives etc) . . . Refined foods (salt/sugars etc )
    Legumes (soy/beans/peas etc)

      FWIW:


      Carl's Junior has a "Low-Carb" Six-Dollar burger for $3.95. It's an Angus burger patty wrapped in lettuce leaves with lots of onion and tomato.

      I'm thinking, if you have to eat at one of those places....

        I dunno... maybe I think it looks decent because I'm thinking of a home-cooked version. I don't remember the last time I set foot in a fast food place, so... my frame of reference may be off.

        Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

            Nah. Its a slab of meat that is about 1/4" thick and at least 1' square...

              Kuno I had to eat on the road last weekend, and we stopped at a Hardee's (Carl's Jr. for the east coast). The Low-carb Six-Dollar burger was decent, I was pleasantly surprised. It was pretty big, and tasted okay. There wasn't much else to choose from (gas station, Burger King, McDonald's), so it was the lesser of fast food evils. First time in months that I'd set foot in a fast food restaurant also, I never eat at them when home.


              Tarlach the skirt and flank steaks are fairly thin, and could be pounded a bit thinner still. I also have "shadow steaks" in my fridge right now for making jerky, but those are really thin (less than 1/4 inch) and about 12" long in a large oval shape. They're cut from the top round. Your wrap idea sounds amazing...I'm going to think about it for next week...

                  hannahc> It might be the flank steak. We get skirt steak for jerky (it's not that) and it's prepared a similar way. The butcher just doesn't call it flank...


                  Check out braciole or involtini on Google for some wrap ideas.

                    There are some awesome recipes for involtini, I think I may do that with my shadow steak this weekend! Leave out the breadcrumbs, and it sounds delicious. Thanks Tarlach

                      through my you-tube browsing i found a rather entertaining video brought to you by a nutritionist who runs "underground wellness". hes basically ranting about oprah and kfc and its pretty awesomesauce.
