Come on! Let me show you!
ALL.THE.THING! But if you want specifics, these roast beef roll ups are one of our family fave because they’re…
- So easy to make! Literally, it’s a bake, layer, and roll kind thing, and should take you TOPS 10 minutes of prep.
- Incredibly tasty. Between the gooey cheese, slightly sweet sauteed veggies, and roast beef, these bitty roast beef roll ups are full of so much flavor, it’s shocking!
- Perfect for meal prep. No matter my goals, I NEVER have time to make lunch. So meals like this one (that store well in the fridge) are perfect for busy workweeks!
- I know this doesn’t apply to everyone, but this is one of our favorite camping meals to pack in the cooler. We toss all the roast beef roll ups in a ziplock bag — they’re great cold and perfect for roadside lunches.
Seriously, guys, there’s not much to these roast beef roll ups… here’s whatcha need to know!
Sliced roast beef – You want deli-sliced beef that’s easy to roll. Make sure not to get too thin of a cut, or your roll ups will have a hard time staying together.
Cheese – I use shredded low carb cheese, but presliced will work as well.
Veggies – My fave low carb vegetables for these roast beef roll ups are onions and bell peppers. Cut them so they’re roughly the same size (this will ensure they cook evenly).
These roast beef roll ups make for the PERFECT lunch, snack, or even appetizer. If you’re eating them for lunch, try serving them alongside some low carb chips, or over a slice of toasted low carb bread.
Want to class these up into a pretty appetizer? Sprinkle some freshly chopped parsley on top, or serve them over a bed of greens.
Not feeling one of the ingredients listed below? Here are a few ways to switch things up!
- Use a different kind of meat. Roast beef and chedda go together like PB + J in my book, but both of these are easy to mix and match based on what you have in the pantry! Try sliced chicken, ham, or turkey.
- Want to beef (pun intended) these roast beef roll ups up a bit? Try placing your ingredients inside my almond flour tortillas or low carb wraps for a heartier meal.
- OR! Make lettuce wraps! Low carb lettuce wraps are as easy as piling the ingredients below inside a large leaf of lettuce.
- You can even use these ingredients to make a sandwich — check out my low carb sandwich bread. Option to melt the cheese directly on top, and get creative with additional toppings (mayo, mustard, more veggies, oh my!).

- Bake in the oven until cheese just melts, about 5 minutes.
- Allow meat/cheese to cool for about 5 minutes (until you're able to handle them), then work quickly before the cheese hardens -- place veggies on one end of the roast beef and roll up over the veggies.
- Slice roll-ups in half or enjoy whole. Option to place a toothpick in the center, and enjoy!
