Roast beef and horseradish are a classic combination.  These Horseradish Roast Beef Pinwheels or roll ups are a perfect way to enjoy those same flavors in a simple recipe.  Growing up, I remember having roast beef and grew to love horseradish.  Now I can’t have roast beef without some horseradish!  So these flavors are a throw back to those family and holiday meals and the memories that I have.

Then spread the mixture out across the tortillas and layer on the roast beef.  Tightly roll up the tortillas into logs, without squeezing out the cheese, and chill.  Chilling the logs helps the cheese to set so it does not leak out and also makes them easier to cut.  Slice them up into rounds and serve.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Make the cheese mixture by combining the cream cheese, Monterey Jack, horseradish, dried thyme, garlic powder, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Spread the cheese mixture across both tortillas to the edges in an even, thin layer. I skip spreading to the right and left edges by about an inch because the ends will be thrown out.
  • Layer the slices of roast beef across the cheese mixture.
  • Starting from the bottom, roll the tortilla up rather tightly but without squeezing the cream cheese mixture out.
  • Chill the logs in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm up, or in the refrigerator if waiting longer before serving. The chilling will make them easier to slice and create cleaner cuts without everything oozing out.
  • When ready to serve, use a serrated knife to cut the log into half inch rounds (or as thick/thin as preferred). Discard the ends where the log is hollow (or snack on them!). Serve immediately.

Notes

You can also use regular large tortillas however you will get fewer pinwheels per tortilla and will need more to use up the cheese mixture.
If you choose to use a cream horseradish, you may need to add more as it may not have as much of a flavor punch.

    Made these Fri for having Sat. Fri they were good, Sat they were even better! As they sit the horseradish flavor really sets in. I’m not a fan of ground thyme or rosemary so I omitted them & added a little over an extra 1/4 tsp of the horseradish & we all thought they were delicious. I’ll definitely be making them again

  2. Do you ever make a dip for these? I like ketchup on my roast beef sandwiches and thinking of some ketchup based dip to go with the roast beef pinwheels?

    • I have not, but that sounds amazing! I say go for it with anything you would serve with a roast beef sandwich or roast dinner.
