Vietnamese summer rolls are often filled with or shrimp, but Grace Parisi makes hers with roast beef from the deli.

  1. 1 large garlic clove, smashed
  2. 1 1/2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon Thai green curry paste
  4. 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  5. 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  6. 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  7. 1/4 cup chopped mint
  8. 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  9. 4 cups coleslaw mix
  10. 1/2 pound rare deli roast beef, thinly sliced and cut into 1/2-inch strips
  11. 24 six-inch-round rice paper wrappers, plus more in case of breakage
  1. In a mortar, pound the garlic to a paste with the brown sugar and green curry paste. Add the lime juice, fish sauce and 3 tablespoons of water. Stir in half of the cilantro and mint. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with 1 tablespoon of the green curry dipping sauce.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the coleslaw mix with the roast beef and the remaining cilantro and mint.
  3. Fill a pie plate with warm water. Dip 2 or 3 rice paper wrappers at a time in the water, then set them on a work surface to soften, about 1 minute. Spread a scant teaspoon of the curry mayonnaise on the bottom third of each wrapper and top with a scant 3 tablespoons of the roast beef filling. Roll the wrappers into tight cylinders, tucking in the sides as you go. Transfer the rolls to a plastic wrap–lined baking sheet and repeat with the remaining wrappers, curry mayonnaise and filling.
  4. Just before serving, cut each roll in half and serve with the dipping sauce.

Suggested Pairing

These light, tangy, herby summer rolls pair best with a substantial white wine. Try a Rhône-style white from California's Central Coast.
