Serving size: 2

Prep time: 10 minutes 

Cook time: 15-20 minutes  

Total time: 30 minutes 



  • 1 lb. of grass-fed beef flank steak
  • 1/2 tbsp. arrowroot starch
  • 2-3 tbsp. avocado oil
  • S+P
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup shallots 
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes  
  • 1/2 cup of water or beef bone broth 
  • 2 tbsp. coconut aminos 
  • 1 tbsp. fish sauce 
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil 
  • 1/2 tbsp. white vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup green onion (greens only), for topping 

Dipping Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp. white vinegar or rice vinegar 
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp. honey (omit if doing Whole30)
  • 1/2 Serrano pepper, thinly sliced 

Lettuce Wraps:

  • 8-10 leaves of Bibb lettuce 
  • 2 carrots, cut into match sticks 
  • 1/2 cucumber, cut into match sticks 
  • 1/2 cup each fresh Thai basil (or regular basil), fresh cilantro and fresh mint 
  • 1/2 cup mung bean sprouts 
  • Sliced lime 


  1. Thinly slice flank steak in 1/4 inch thick strips, against the grain.
  2. Season with salt, pepper and arrowroot starch. Toss to make sure the beef is evenly coated. 
  3. Heat avocado oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Cook beef strips in stages, browning both sides and cooking thoroughly. Set aside and let it rest. 
  4. Add red pepper flakes, garlic and shallots. Cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute, just to soften the shallot and garlic. 
  5. Add water or bone broth to de-glaze the pan. Once you get all of the good, browned bits off the pan and mixed all ingredients, add beef back in the skillet and toss to coat. 
  6. Add coconut aminos, fish sauce, sesame oil, vinegar. Mix well and let cook for 5 minutes to let the sauce thicken and mix with the beef. 
  7. Make dipping sauce: combine all ingredients together, whisk and set aside.
  8. Construct lettuce wraps: place Bibb lettuce, carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, fresh herbs, mung bean sprouts, beef (top with green onion) and sauce on a platter then assemble away!!!
