    1. 1
      For the marinade, whisk together soy sauce, beer, garlic, sugar, 2 tablespoons lime juice, Sriracha and sesame oil in a large bowl. Add meat and toss to coat. Let sit at room temperature 1 hour or refrigerate covered up to 24 hours.
    2. 2
      To Prepare Condiments. Toss carrot with remaining lime juice and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Place peppers, green onions, mint, cilantro, sesame seeds, sriracha and rice in individual serving bowls. Arrange lettuce on a platter.
    3. 3
      To Prepare the Steak: Heat peanut or vegetable oil in a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Add beef strips in batches in one layer without overcrowding. Brown on both sides. Transfer to a platter and keep warm.
    4. 4
      Once all the beef has been browned, pour the remaining marinade and any collected meat juices into the skillet. Bring to a boil, scraping up any bits and reduce until somewhat thickened. Pour into a small bowl.
    5. 5
      To serve, top a lettuce leaf with a few spoonfuls of rice, 1-2 meat strips, and a spoonful of the marinade reduction. Sprinkle with the other condiments and drizzle with sriracha. Roll up and eat.

      Perfection on a plate!! Did not use rice, didn't need it. The sauce is amazing. Used Boston bibb lettuce for the wrap. Made it to my best of 2012 cookbook.
