These Asian Steak Lettuce Wraps are such a great weeknight meal!
Easy to make and loaded with flavor, they will quickly become a family favorite.
I'm so excited to be hosting #SundaySupper this week! Once I heard the theme was Lean Beef Recipes, I just knew I had to be the host. You see, we eat a lot of beef around here. I'm a big fan of Certified Angus Beef brand and I seem to always have some in the freezer. From steaks to ground beef to roasts, I haven't met any beef that I didn't like. 😋
These Asian Steak Lettuce Wraps are so simple to make. Using one of my favorite cuts, flank steak, ensures lots of flavor and a quick cooking time. The steak cooks under the broiler and is ready in a flash. Once the meat has rested and been sliced, it's all about the assembly! Top lettuce leaves with slices of steak, carrots, peanuts, and a zesty sauce and dinner is served.
You can also top your wraps with sliced green onions or even kimchi. I went the more simplistic route, one I knew my kids would like, but the options are endless and can be customized to your taste.

Asian Steak Lettuce Wraps
Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door
1 1/4 pound skirt steak, trimmed of fat
1/4 cup red chile bean sauce
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
2 Tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1/2 cup matchstick carrots
1 large head Romaine lettuce, leaves separated
1/4 cup salted peanuts
Position a rack about 6 inches from the broiler and heat the broiler on high. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and set a cooling rack inside of it.
Whisk the chile bean sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, and garlic in a small bowl. Rub about half of the mixture all over the steak and let it marinate at room temperature for 5-10 minutes. Whisk the vinegar into the remaining mixture and place in a small serving bowl. Arrange the carrots, lettuce, peanuts and sauce on a large serving platter.
Place the steak on the prepared pan and broil, turning once, about 4 minutes per side, until medium rare. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes, then slice it into thin strips. Season to taste with salt and add to serving platter. Bring the platter to the table and let everyone build their own wraps.
