    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Begin by soaking the skewers in water for 20 minutes to prevent them from igniting when placed on the grill.
    2. 2
      With a boning knife, trim any visible fat on the skirt steak. Then, cutting on a bias, slice against the grain in 3-inch strips and set aside in a plastic storage container.
    3. 3
      For the marinade, combine in a large bowl 3/4 cup of the soy sauce, the juice of 2 limes, the pineapple juice, and the sliced onion. Mix well, season with salt and pepper, and pour over the beef. Allow this to marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove the beef from the marinade, and skewer with the bamboo.
    4. 4
      For the dipping sauce, in a small bowl combine the remaining 1/4 cup soy sauce, the ginger, garlic, sugar, juice of the remaining 2 limes, the vinegar, and scallions. Check the seasoning, and transfer to a small serving bowl.
    5. 5
      Light the grill or preheat the oven to 375°F.
    6. 6
      To serve, grill or bake the skewers on a hot grill for about 1 minute on each side, and allow to cool. On a large platter, lay out the butter lettuce leaves, then on each leaf, place a few basil and cilantro leaves.
    7. 7
      Rest the skewers of beef on the leaves. Have each guest grab a leaf, remove the skewer, and enjoy with the dipping sauce.

      We love lettuce wraps and this was a really nice treat! I only marinated the beef for 30 minutes and I did make some changes such as lowering the amount of soy sauce, vinegar and ginger. We really enjoyed the sauce as well. Thanks for the post! Made for 1-2-3 Tag, February, 2012.

      These lettuce wraps were great! I marinated about 45 minutes and the meat was very flavorful and great with the dipping sauce. I left out the onion and cilantro (personal pref) and we really enjoyed these wraps - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I marinated for 2 hours. I think that may have been too long. My steak came out tasting slightly like sausage. The dipping sauce is good though...really enjoyed that. I'd like to give it 3 1/2 stars because of the dipping sauce, but all diners voted either a 2 or 3 on the steak and majority ruled in this case. Sorry. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
