Issa Wrap

A homemade wrap is easy to make. I had to convince myself about this because it seemed like such a hustle but it is really easy to whip up. This wrap includes a fav flesh as it’s known in my house and while you’re exploring with it, be generous with the chili… it will taste even better!


  • Pork tenderloin cut into strips
  • Tomato paste
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Cumin
  • Chili
  • Ginger
  • Carrots
  • Flour
  • Half teaspoon salt
  • Water
  • Olive oil

The pork;

  • Heat 1 table-spoon oil in a wok over medium high heat
  • Cook pork tenderloin until browned for 2 to 4 minutes and transfer
  • Heat remaining oil and add onions and garlic till they start to soften
  • Add ginger, tomatoes and spice, liquid and simmer for about a minute
  • Add pork and cook till pork is ready for about 6 – 8 minutes


The wrap;

  • In a bowl combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil (2 cups of flour to ¾ cup water)
  • Knead into a smooth dough that doesn’t stick to clean hands
  • Turn over into a floured surface if needed
  • Divide dough into 8 portions and roll into a circle
  • On a non-stick skillet cook tortillas over medium heat for 1 minute on each side till lightly browned. Keep warm when removed.
  • Place about 2 – 3 table spoons of the pork on the tortilla, spread it out and drizzle over a little sauce and wrap it up!
