What Are Ground Beef Rolls?

Made with a handful of ingredients, these rolls require minimal prep time and are ready with a total time of less than 30 minutes. Prepare them for game day appetizers, afterschool snacks, or a quick weeknight meal! 

Ingredients You Need

Below are the ingredients and instructions for this recipe. Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card for the complete details and nutrition information! 

  • Tortillas – We recommend using eight-inch flour tortillas! Corn tortillas do not work well for this recipe. 
  • Ground Beef – Opt for lean ground beef (90 percent or leaner if possible) to prevent the rolls from becoming soggy. 
  • Red Onion – Chop the onion super finely to ensure you get a little bit in every bite. 
  • Herbs and Spices – Salt, pepper, allspice, and fresh parsley create a warm and refreshing taste! 

Roll, Cook, Repeat – The Best Beef Rolls Recipe

  1. Season the beef. Add the beef, onion, herbs, and spices to a large bowl. Mix to combine, and distribute the ingredients evenly. 
  2. Warm the tortillas. Heat the tortillas in the microwave or a dry skillet just until they’re pliable and easy to work with. 
  3. Fill the tortillas. Slice one of the tortillas in half to create two semi-circles. Place some of the beef mixture on one half, spreading it along the curved edge. 
  4. Fold the beef rolls. Slowly roll the tortilla over the beef mixture, creating a half-moon shape. Secure the tortilla with a toothpick, and repeat until all the beef is used. 
  5. Cook. Cook the beef roll ups in the air fryer or oven just until they are golden brown and crisp. Work in batches as needed, if using an air fryer

Serving Suggestions

These beef rolls are a party in your mouth all on their own. However, we love to dial up the flavor and top them with a cucumber and tomato salad, tzatziki sauce, and hummus

Don’t be shy about getting saucy, either! Mix and match different dipping sauces — our favorites to slather on these rolls are garlicky toum, zesty ranch, fresh zhoug sauce, or tangy feta cucumber sauce

How to Store and Reheat

This recipe is best served right away. However, if needed, leftovers can be transferred to an airtight container and stored in the refrigerator for two to three days. Just keep in mind that the tortillas may become slightly soggy as they sit. 

Reheat your roll ups in the air fryer or oven to crisp the tortillas back up. Or, if you’re in a hurry, pop them in the microwave instead.

Assemble the Tortilla Cones:

  • Take one of the tortillas and slice it in half to create two semi-circles.
  • Place about 2-3 tablespoons of the seasoned beef mixture on one half of the tortilla, spreading it out in a line along the curved edge.
  • Carefully fold the tortilla in half over the beef mixture to create a half-moon shape.
  • Starting from one end, roll the tortilla tightly around the beef mixture, forming a cone shape. Secure the end with a toothpick if needed. Repeat this process for the remaining tortillas.

Air Fry or Bake:

  • Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  • Lightly spray the tortilla cones with avocado oil, or brush them with olive oil. This will help them turn golden and crispy during cooking.

  • Air fry or bake the tortilla cones for about 8-10 minutes, or until they become golden brown and crispy, turning them halfway through for even cooking.
