Steak lettuce wraps


On Saturday I went to a friends' place for a BBQ birthday party so I knew I'd be having a burger and some other not-so-healthy things so I wanted to have something healthy for lunch to allow for the extra carbs that evening.

I had a steak already cooked up in the fridge so I thinly sliced bell peppers, julienned a carrot, and minced some fresh garlic. In a pan over medium high heat use a tablespoon of grapeseed oil to heat up the garlic and then throw in the carrots. When they're about cooked half way through add the peppers. While those are cooking thinly slice the steak so it heats quickly.

  

If you don't have steak already cooked then thinly slice it, cook it, and remove if from the pan before doing the carrot and pepper. When the carrot and peppers are almost done add the steak and sauce to heat through.



I used teriyaki sauce from a jar but it would have been even tastier with a peanut hoisin sauce like most restaurants use in their lettuce wraps.

Spoon the mixture into romaine leaves and enjoy! For added crunch mix in some uncooked chow mein noodles. Enjoy!
