Made this today and it was excellent. I did change the protein as I had a whole large chicken breast from the night before, so I can't comment on the cooking technique for the steak. I also used thai basil instead of italian-style basil and highly recommend that change. I will probably use more herbs next time, because I love fresh herbs. I will also likely reduce the brown sugar in the sauce just a bit and maybe increase the lime juice to taste. I like a previous reviewers idea of just using the lettuce as a wrap and will likely try that next time. I can't wait to experiemnt with other variations with this is the base because it's a winner.
