Gluten Free Pho-Flavor Flank Steak Lettuce Wraps

Directions

  1. Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 2-inch pieces. Place meat in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Top with yellow onions. In a medium bowl combine the water, fish sauce, sugar, vinegar, half of the jalapeno peppers, and the five-spice powder. Pour vinegar mixture over mixture in cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
  3. Remove meat from cooker, reserving cooking liquid. Transfer half of the meat to an airtight container or freezer container; cover and chill or freeze for another use. Shred or chop the remaining meat; transfer to a medium bowl. Strain cooking liquid. Stir enough of the strained liquid (about 1/4 cup) into shredded meat to moisten.
  4. To serve, divide shredded meat among lettuce leaves. Top with radishes, basil leaves, green onions, and the remaining jalapeno peppers. Sprinkle with lime juice. If desired, serve with Asian chili sauce and lime wedges.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

These are tasty, HOWEVER, the nutritional information supplied is not correct. If you have a 2 wrap serving, you are consuming 375 calories, 15g of fat and 2g of fiber. If you use 1 pound of flank steak instead of 2 pounds (as in their recipe book Calorie Smart Meals), you are STILL getting 229. I figured the calories through two different methods, automatically via myfitnesspal recipe importer and manually using "The Complete Food Counter" book, and those values were within a few calories of each other -- FAR different than what the recipe here states.

I thought these were really good! My husband and I had 3 wraps each and, while delicious, we found them to be not very filling. Maybe we're just used to big meals, but I feel like it would take about 5 or 6 of these to fill me up. Maybe serve some dumplings as an appetizer and have a nice dessert for a complete meal. The recipe was easy to follow and came out better than I expected. I'm going to use my leftover meat in a soup later this week!
