Who needs the calories of bread or a sub bun when you can use lettuce as the sandwich wrap? This cheesy steak sandwich smothered with onions and mushrooms is a low cal lunch that can be prepared in under 10 minutes.
One lettuce wrap with two tomato slices is in the neighborhood of 200 calories. I used 2 ounces of lean tenderloin thinly sliced and quickly pan seared.
This is an “on the fly” lunch and can be prepared ahead of time. Reheat the meat mixture on the stove top and then plate on the lettuce leaf. I used Boston leaf lettuce for my wrap, but you can also use red, green or romaine leaves as well.
The slice of low-fat sharp cheddar gives added flavor and just enough gooeyness to keep the steak from being dry. Blimpy Girl gives this lunch dish a big thumbs-up. Grab the Recipe
