Instructions

  1. To make the marinade: In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, rice wine, sesame oil, borown sugar, sambal oelek, garlic, and scallions.
  2. Place the flank steak in a large glass baking dish, or plastic sealable baggie. Pour the marinade over the flank steak and let marinate for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator and let it get to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
  3. Using an outdoor grill, or grill pan, coat with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Grill the steak for about 6 minutes each side, or until cooking to medium. Remove to cutting board and let rest 10 minutes. Slice the meat across the grain.
  4. To make the lettuce cups: Place a few pieces of steak into the lettuce leaf and top with carrots, bean sprouts, cucumbers, and cilantro. Drizzle with nuoc cham dipping sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
