You can either serve this dish as family style where each person would wrap their own lettuce beef rolls, or serve it pre-wrapped on individual plates. Either way, you would prepare the rolls by placing 1-2 slices of beef onto the center of each lettuce wrap and rolling the leaf to form a roll. You can use a toothpick to ensure it holds its shape if you are serving it as pre-wrapped rolls!
