Recipe

One of my all time favorite recipes on the blog is for these delicious Slow Cooker Korean Beef Tacos.  I make them whenever I get the chance and they are often my go to for dinner parties or gatherings.  However sometimes I just don't have the foresight to get everything into the slow cooker ahead of time and that's where the inspiration for today's recipe came from.  And since lettuce wraps are one of my favorite meals, figuring out an easy way to make a quick weekday meal inspired by the Korean beef just made sense.  This marinade works for chicken, pork, or tofu as well so you can mix up the protein to suit your needs.

Directions

  1. Wrap the steak in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. This will make it easier to slice.
  2. Meanwhile, toss the cucumber with the rice vinegar and set aside.
  3. Mix together the soy sauce, orange juice, brown sugar, garlic, green onions, black pepper, and sesame oil.
  4. Remove steak from freezer and slice thinly against the grain. Add to marinade and let rest for 15 minutes. During this time you can get all the garnishes ready.
  5. Preheat a skillet to medium hot or a grill to medium hot.
  6. Remove the steak from the marinade and quickly sear for 1-2 minutes per side until cooked to your liking.
  7. Serve in lettuce wraps with garnishes.
