Ingredients:

For the Beef Marinade:

  • 1 pound beef sirloin or flank steak, thinly sliced

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • Add Sweet Pea Microgreens cut to bite size

For the Thai Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (adjust to your desired level of spiciness)

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

For the Lettuce Wraps:

  • 1 head of lettuce (butter lettuce or iceberg), leaves separated and washed

  • 1 cucumber, julienned

  • 1 carrot, julienned

  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish

  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish

  • Chopped peanuts, for garnish (optional)

Instructions:


1. Marinate the Beef:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, minced garlic, grated ginger, and vegetable oil. Stir well to create the marinade.

  • Add the thinly sliced beef to the marinade, ensuring all pieces are coated evenly. Cover the bowl and let the beef marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.

2. Prepare the Thai Sauce:

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice, rice vinegar, brown sugar, chili garlic sauce, minced garlic, and grated ginger to create the Thai sauce. Adjust the level of spiciness to your liking by adding more or less chili garlic sauce.

3. Cook the Beef:

  • Heat a skillet or wok over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once the pan is hot, remove the beef from the marinade, allowing any excess liquid to drip off, and add it to the skillet.

  • Stir-fry the beef for 2-3 minutes until it is cooked to your desired level of doneness. The beef should be tender and slightly caramelized from the marinade.

4. Assemble the Lettuce Wraps:

  • To assemble the Thai lettuce wraps, take a lettuce leaf and add a few slices of the cooked beef to the center.

  • Top the beef with julienned cucumber, carrot, and sliced red bell pepper.

  • Drizzle a spoonful of the Thai sauce over the fillings, and garnish with fresh cilantro and mint leaves.

  • If desired, sprinkle some chopped peanuts over the top for added texture and flavor.

5. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Arrange the assembled lettuce wraps on a serving platter and serve immediately. Encourage everyone to wrap the fillings in the lettuce leaves and enjoy the explosion of flavors in each bite.
