napa cabbage beef wraps - amazing (pic heavy)

Hit up another recepie over this past week from the big green cookbook - napa cabbage beef wraps. I've tried to paste the link to the recipe below, hope it works. 

Anyways, marinated a 2lb flank steak overnight in the cilantro/lime/basil/ginger/garlic/oil mixture. 

Threw it on a preheated egg direct at 500* for a couple minutes on each side until well seared and ~medium rare. Let sit for 5-10min before slicing against the grain. 

The recipe calls for cabbage for the wrap - i was skeptical but it actually is very tasty and just the right amount of crunch and durability for the wrap. 

 Chopped up some carrot, radish, shallot, basil and mint for the toppings and rolled it all together with a chili garlic lime based sauce (which I did not like, need to figure out a different one next time). 

 Overall big hit with the family, and will be on the list to do again. 


  • Those look fantastic! I have that cookbook, but haven't cooked anything from it in a while. Did you use Napa cabvage, or just regular cabbage? Your pic looks like regular cabbage. Either way, it still looks good.

    Regular, couldn't find napa at the store so went with a small green cabbage, and pealed it back until I found the layer I wanted.
