Foodie Friday: Shish-Kabob Wrap with Sautéed Onions, Peppers, and Tomatoes!

A low-carb wrap served with rice.



















This dish was inspired by Anthony Bourdain's recent visit to Istanbul, Turkey. Originally I was going to use Tandoori bread, but it wasn't flexible enough to use as a wrap.















Recipe for Shish-Kabob Wraps - Take any type of protein: beef, pork, lamb, even chicken.  Pat the meet dry then cut it into small cubes.  Season the meet with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and paprika. For the Kabobs, grill on high heat for ten minutes turning once. You can cook the kabobs on the stove on high heat for 8-10 minutes or in the oven at 375°F for 20 minutes.  

Next, chop one onion, a red and green bell pepper, and one tomato.  Heat a pan on medium heat, add some olive oil and sauté the onion and bell peppers for about five minutes stirring occasionally.  Turn off the heat and add the chopped tomato, then cover.
Spoon the vegetables onto the bread of your choice, add the kabob meat and wrap!

  6. This looks and sounds delicious. Too cold here to grill outdoors, but I am sure the meat can easily be broiled. Love the onion/pepper/tomato combo! Thanks so much, Tyler!! :-)

  14. Tyler, this sounds & looks delicious! I probably would have added the tomato too soon if I had tried to make it without your direction. Thanks!

  17. Yum...Looks delicious. We had recorded Anthony Bourdain's Istanbul program and watched it last night. The food looked fabulous, but of course, he couldn't give recipes. Thanks for making something we can duplicate at home. I'm getting out my cast iron grill pan to see how that works making the Kabobs. Thanks again.

  23. I love wraps so much, I almost opened a wrap restaurant here in Florida about 12 years ago. There still isn't one, so I continue to make wraps at home. They are easy and oh so good. This recipe looks delicious, I'll have mine with chicken please.
