Teriyaki Steak Lettuce Wraps w/ Pineapple Salsa

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

This is one of my favorite weekday recipes because it tastes like you're treating yourself to something not-so-healthy but in reality, you're behaving like a perfect angel. It also combines two of my absolute favorite flavor combinations -- sweet & salty.


What you'll need:
2 premium top sirloin cuts, approximately 9 oz., cut into strips
Kikoman Teriyaki Sauce (my personal favorite)
Garlic sesame seeds
1 ripe pineapple
1 large red bell pepper
1 bunch fresh cilantro
7-8 green onions OR 1 small red onion
1/4 lime
1 head Iceberg or Bibb lettuce


Directions:
Marinate steak in teriyaki sauce for at least 30 minutes. The longer you let it marinate, though, the better. Broil for 8-10 minutes, flipping half way through.


Chop pineapple, pepper and onions into bite-size pieces and add to large bowl. Chop cilantro and add to mixture. Squeeze fresh lime juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Rinse and dry lettuce.




Baste cooked steak with extra teriyaki and sprinkle with garlic sesame seeds. Build lettuce wraps by using one large leaf as base of wrap.

There are approximately 400 calories in two large lettuce wraps per serving. This recipe makes two servings. 

Hope you enjoy!
