4 servings (serving size: 2 filled lettuce leaves)

Southeast Asian salads are traditionally eaten out of hand, with lettuce leaves for wrappers. To make the job easier, chill the steak in the freezer for 10 minutes before slicing.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine chile paste, ginger, and garlic in a large zip-top plastic bag; add steak, tossing to coat. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.

Step 2

Combine lime juice, fish sauce, and sugar, stirring with a whisk; set dressing aside.

Step 3

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Remove steak from bag; discard marinade. Add steak to pan; cook 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness, turning once. Cut steak into 1-inch pieces; place in a medium bowl. Add radishes, cilantro, mint, and serrano. Pour lime juice mixture over beef mixture, tossing to coat. Spoon about 1/3 cup salad into each lettuce leaf, and serve immediately.
