Ingredients

FOR THE LETTUCE WRAPS:

  • pounds cube steak finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • tablespoons low-sodium tamari or low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 large lime juiced
  • 7 teaspoons coconut oil divided
  • 4 green onions (dark parts only) sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch plus 1 tablespoon cold water to make slurry
  • 18 lettuce leaves bib, iceberg or romaine
  • cilantro leaves

CUCUMBER RELISH:

  • 1/2 english cucumber finely diced {seed sections discarded}
  • 1/2 red bell pepper finely diced
  • 1/2 small red onion finely diced

Instructions

MAKE THE LETTUCE WRAPS:

  • In a large bowl combine the honey, Sriracha, lime juice, coconut oil and tamari. Whisk until smooth.
  • Add the diced cube steak, toss and marinate {on the counter} for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, slice up the green onions and mince the garlic and ginger, set aside.
  • Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat and add in a teaspoon of coconut oil.
  • Once hot add in the onions, ginger and garlic. Stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add in the chopped steak and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes or until the steak is completely cooked through.
  • Pour in the slurry and stir. Cook for a minute or two {to cook out the starchy taste}, remove from the heat and season with a couple pinches of kosher salt.
  • Serve inside your favorite lettuce {butter, bib, iceberg or romaine} and top with a little cucumber relish and cilantro.

MAKE THE RELISH:

  • In a small bowl combine the finely diced cucumber, red pepper and red onion.
