Ginger Beef Lettuce Wraps
Ingredients
  • 1  pound  beef flank steak or boneless beef top round steak
  • 1  medium  yellow or green sweet pepper, seeded, cut in bite-size strips
  • 1  small  zucchini, trimmed and cut in thin bite-size strips
  • 1/2  medium  red onion, cut in thin wedges
  • 1/3  cup  ginger beer or ginger ale
  • 3  tablespoons  reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2  cloves  garlic, minced
  • 1/2  teaspoon  cornstarch
  • 2  teaspoons  canola oil
  • 2  tablespoons  finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 12  Bibb or leaf lettuce leaves (about 2 heads)
  • 1/4  cup  fresh cilantro leaves
Directions

1. Trim fat from beef. For easy slicing, wrap and freeze beef 30 to 45 minutes or until firm. Thinly slice beef across grain; place slices in self-sealing plastic bag. In a second self-sealing bag combine sweet pepper, zucchini, and onion.

2. For marinade, in bowl combine ginger beer, soy sauce, and garlic. Divide marinade between beef and vegetables. Seal bags; turn to coat each. Refrigerate 4 to 6 hours, turning bags occasionally. Drain marinades into bowl. Stir in cornstarch; set aside.

3. Heat oil in large nonstick wok or extra-large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger; stir-fry 15 seconds. Add vegetables; stir-fry 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove vegetables. Add half the beef to wok. Stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or until beef is slightly pink in center. Remove beef. Repeat with remaining beef. Return all to wok, away from center. Stir marinade mixture; add to center of wok. Cook until bubbly. Toss beef and vegetables to coat. Remove from heat.

4. To serve, divide beef and vegetables among lettuce leaves, top with cilantro, and roll up. Makes 12 wraps (4 servings).
