Recipe Notes

Vegetarian: for vegetarian version, do NOT use beef, replace it with more vegetables like mushrooms.

Keto: for keto version, do NOT use tofu

Be creative! Add different vegetables for the filling.

I made small rolls as they are much easier to eat, however you can use more mixture per roll to make rolls much bigger.
