  • Whisk together lemongrass, fish sauce, sugar, garlic, and oil. Slice beef very thinly against the grain. Add to marinade, and toss. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.

  • Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Thread beef onto skewers. Grill until browned, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a platter, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Sprinkle with peanuts. Serve with the remaining ingredients on the side, bundling the meat, cucumber, and herbs inside the lettuce leaves if desired.

This was a pretty good recipe but next time we're gonna put less fish sauce.

PS... Rice Noodles was the side (a great addition) and the lemon grass was really tasty. Try to get it if you can.

Oh yum! They were great. If you are iffy on the fish sauce, then substitute teriyaki sauce. With a fish allergy in the home, I split the recipe and made two versions (one with fish sauce, one with substituting teriyaki for fish sauce.) They both turned out well, but of course the fish sauce was yummier.

These were a big hit with my kids! The marinade made a delicious glaze that did not burn since they are cooked for such a short time. I omitted the lemongrass because it was not available, and it was still great! It was so nice to be able to cook these in 5 minutes.
