I love a meal with some interactivity and rice paper rolls are the perfect option to change things up a little bit. All it takes is a little food prep in advance and everyone gets the chance to customize their meal to their own personal preferences. And what could be more refreshing than a veggie-packed rice paper roll? I like to make mine with this marinated sirloin as a protein option, alongside my veggies, herbs, noodles, and dipping sauces.


For the sirloin:

  • 1 lb sirloin
  • 1 lime, juiced and zested
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tb soy sauce
  • A few drops worcestershire (or a tb fish sauce)
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sriracha (1/2 tsp)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

For filling:- just some ideas! feel free to mix and match fillings as desired

  • rice paper
  • one package of cooked rice noodles
  • Cucumber

  • Bean sprouts

  • Green onion

  • Cilantro

  • carrots

  1. Start by thinly slicing your sirloin into small strips.
  2. Add the meat to a ziploc bag along with your lime juice, zest, minced garlic, soy sauce, worcestershire, brow sugar, salt, pepper, and sriracha.
  3. Mix the ingredients in the bag to ensure even flavor distribution.
  4. Let marinate in the refrigerator for somewhere between half an hour and 2 hours.
  5. Cook in a skillet with a teaspoon of sesame oil for about 3-5 minutes or until browned and only slightly pink in the middle.
  6. Remove from heat. Set out, along with your rice paper, and prepared fillings. Serve with dipping sauces, like sriracha, soy sauce, or peanut sauce.
