Weeping Tiger Beef Lettuce Wraps


Weeping Tiger Beef Lettuce Wraps is a popular Thai dish that is perfect for a quick and easy dinner or as an appetizer. The dish is made with tender and juicy strips of beef, which are marinated in a flavorful and spicy sauce, and then grilled to perfection. This is my twist on the famous weeping tiger beef. You can make it a complete meal by including the garlic fried rice or you could make it low-carb by omitting it. Just don’t omit the sauce. This sauce is a total game-changer. I literally can eat this by the spoonful. I’m so in love with the sauce that I always make a double batch and eat it with prawn chips. It is perfect for entertaining guests, as it is easy to make in advance and a great way to enjoy a flavorful and satisfying meal. Please do share your thoughts with me if you do make it. I’d love to hear from you. Share your thoughts and remakes with me on Instagram @sliceofgourmet
