Why You'll Love This Recipe

Simple: You will love these simple lettuce cups because they are not only easy but incredibly delicious and satisfying! I love lettuce cups as they are a lean and healthy dinner option that always fills me up.

USA Steak: I created this recipe with my friends at Organic Prairie using their Organic Flank Steak. Delaney and I have recently been eating their Organic Flank Steak and it is so good! Organic Prairie is one of the only places to buy premium organic steaks and they ship right to your door! So even living where we do, it’s incredibly easy to get ethically raised organic steak, which is really important to us.

Asian Inspired: I went with an Asian spin on these Flank Steak Lettuce Cups as Delaney and I both love Asian food and make it frequently. I’ve recently been using coconut aminos as opposed to soy sauce in literally everything as I think it tastes the same and it’s so much healthier!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Allow the steak to come to room temperature and pat dry.

Step 2

Slice the mushrooms thin.

In a large skillet, add the avocado oil and put over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms, coconut aminos, and garlic. Sauté until the mushrooms are golden brown. Set aside.

Step 3

Salt and pepper each side of the steak. In a large skillet over high heat, add the steak and cook for 4 to 6 minutes per side, until internal temperature is 140°F (for medium rare, or to your liking). 

Step 4

Remove steak from the skillet and allow to rest for 5 minutes. 

Step 5

Prepare lettuce cups by adding bean sprouts and mushrooms. Chop green onions.

Slice the steak against the grain into ¼-inch strips. Add on top of the mushrooms and top with green onions.  Feel free to add a sweet chili sauce or sesame seeds on top too!

FAQ's

Can I use another cut of steak?

Yes, if you'd like to use another cut of steak you can do that. Fajita meat or stew meat would also be incredibly easy and would be delicious in this recipe too!

Can I cook steak on the grill?

Yes! If it's grilling season, feel free to cook the steak on the grill. I usually prefer this, but when it's not grilling season, cooking it in the cast iron and then oven finishing is a great alternative.
