The inspiration for these lettuce wraps comes from one of my favorite Chinatown restaurants in Philadelphia called Vietnam. The charred steak slices were the centerpiece for a build-your-own lettuce wrap. I love the addition of coconut oil to provide another layer of flavor and healthy fats. The longer you can marinate the steak, the more flavorful each bite will be.

VARIATION TIP: This recipe can transform into a fun keto-friendly appetizer by slicing the steak into 1/2-inch pieces and threading them onto6 (4-inch) skewers. Forgo the lettuce, scallions, and baby carrots and simply serve the cooked marinated Thai kebabs

Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 1/2 pounds skirt steak
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons erythritol
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 Bibb lettuce leaves
  • 2 scallions, white and green parts, chopped
  • 2 baby carrots, shredded


  • Small Bowl
  • Step 1

    Place the steak in a resealable plastic bag.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, whisk the coconut aminos, lime juice, coconut oil, tahini, water, erythritol, salt, chili powder, and garlic to combine. Pour the marinade over the steak. Seal the bag and massage the marinade into the steak. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours, turning the steak at least once during marinating.

  • Step 3

    Insert the Grill Grate and close the hood. Select GRILL, set the temperature to HIGH, and set the time to 8 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating.

  • Step 4

    When the unit beeps to signal it is preheated, place the steak directly onto the Grill Grate. Close the hood and cook for 4 minutes. After 4 minutes, flip the steak, close the hood, and cook for an additional 4 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Slice the steak with the grain into long strips. Divide the steak strips equally among the lettuce leaves. Top with the scallions and shredded carrots. Serve.
