Asian Wrap
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds sirloin or London broil, scored with a knife
  • ¾ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons mirin or rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup julienned green onions (scallions)
  • 2 teaspoons hot red chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 40 very thin slices garlic
  • 20 large green or red lettuce leaves
Instructions
  1. In a large, non-reactive bowl, combine ½ cup soy sauce, the minced garlic, 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of the mirin, and the red pepper flakes. Add the meat toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.
  2. Preheat the grill. Mix the remaining ¼ cup soy sauce with remaining 1 teaspoon of sesame oil. Add the green onions (scallions), and garlic, and toss to combine. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine the remaining teaspoon of mirin, the chili powder and sesame seeds.
  3. Remove the steak from the marinade and pat dry. Grill for about 5-7 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Let rest for 10 minutes. Slice the meat thin across the grain. For more flavor, heat the marinade in a sauce pan and toss the thinly sliced meat in the hot marinade before serving.
  4. Lay the lettuce leaves on a flat work surface and rub the mirin mixture on the insides of the leaves. Set aside.
  5. Lay several slices of cooked steak in center of each leaf, drizzle with about 1 tablespoon of the seasoned green onions (scallions), and top with 2 garlic slivers. Fold the lettuce over the steak and wrap tightly. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and serve immediately.
