Balsamic Onion Wrap

Beef Tortillas with Balsamic Onions


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium red onions thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 6 tbsp beef broth - or substitute in some red wine
  • 12 oz roast beef thinly sliced
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas
  • baby spinach
  • black pepper freshly ground, to taste


  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over low-medium heat, add onions and cook about 10-15 minutes until they caramelize.
  • Add the sugar, vinegar and broth/wine and cook another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool, season with fresh ground black pepper.
  • Arrange some spinach leaves on each tortilla, top with beef and balsamic onions, roll up and serve.
  • Try this topped with a bit of tzitki sauce or maybe some fresh guacamole.


Red onions, when browned, do tend to turn a not all that appetizing brownish color, but adding the brown sugar and balsamic vinegar... you don't really notice. But this would be worth trying with other onions, each have their own flavors, from vidalia to sweet yellow.
