  • 1 ½ pounds flank steak

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 package (3 ¾ ounces) cellophane or bean-thread noodles

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 6 scallions, 3 sliced and 3 cut into thirds

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh, cilantro

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 8 leaves Boston lettuce

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into strips


  1. Heat broiler, with rack 4 inches from heat. Place steak on a large rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Broil until medium-rare, 10 to 12 minutes, turning halfway through. Let rest 10 minutes; thinly slice against the grain.

  2. While steak rests, cook noodles according to package instructions; drain, and return to pot. Add 1 tablespoon oil and sliced scallions; season with salt and pepper.

  3. In a small bowl, combine lime juice, cilantro, garlic, and 1 tablespoon oil; season sauce with salt and pepper. Fill lettuce leaves with beef, mango, and scallion lengths; drizzle with sauce. Serve with noodles.
