DIRECTIONS

  • Make chile garlic sauce: Stir together ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, vinegar, sesame oil, Sriracha sauce, and mirin in a 1-quart heavy saucepan and boil over moderate heat 5 minutes.
  • Stir in sugar and simmer until thickened and reduced to about 1/3 cup, about 5 minutes.
  • Cool to room temperature.
  • Make beef while sauce is cooling: Pat steak dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Heat sesame oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté steak, stirring occasionally, until browned on outside but still pink inside, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in shallot, Sriracha sauce, habanero, and mirin and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until beef is tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Stir in coconut milk and simmer, uncovered, until sauce is slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
  • To serve: Put beef, chile garlic sauce, lime wedges (for squeezing), and remaining condiments each in a separate bowl.
  • Spoon beef into lettuce leaves and top with condiments and sauce, then wrap up.
