Roast Beef French Fry Wraps


French Fries:

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 large Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Slices of roast beef

Spicy Mustard Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon country-style Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Cook a bottom round or sirloin tip roast (for a juicy recipe, see our September 2020 issue) or use thick deli slices. Whisk mustard sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Refrigerate at least two hours before serving so flavors can blend.

Place oven rack in the lower third of your oven and preheat to 450 degrees. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil; set aside. Peel potatoes and slice into 1/4-inch-wide sticks. Place in a large bowl and add hot water so it covers potatoes by at least 1 inch; let sit 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry on towels as much as possible. Rinse and dry bowl the potatoes soaked in and return potatoes to bowl.

Drizzle with remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with salt, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper. Toss to coat, making sure the spices and oil are well distributed. Spread a single layer on baking sheet and bake 15-20 minutes until golden underneath. Remove from oven and turn fries over with a large spatula. Bake 5-10 more minutes until fries are as golden and crisp as you like. Wrap in slices of roast beef and secure with toothpicks. Serve with spicy mustard sauce for dipping. Makes 4-6 servings.
