Remove the stead from the freezer and slice into thin slices.  Put them back into the freezer bag and add the marinade to the bag and seal it.  Massage the meat into the marinade and flip the bag several times to be sure all the meat is coated.  Put the bag in the refrigerator for 2-4 hour to let the marinade penetrate the meat.  Flip the bag a couple of time during that time.

  • Place the steak in a plastic baggie and put in the freezer for about ½ hour until firm.
  • Whisk together the nectar, grated pear, jelly, soy sauce, vinegar, shallots, garlic, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce and ginger in a bowl.
  • Remove the steak from the freezer and slice into thin slices. Add the slices to the marinade and stir to coat the meat. Put the mixture into a large plastic bag and put in the refrigerator for 2-8 hours to marinate. Flip the bag a few times to make sure the dressing penetrates the meat.

  • You can serve this family style with the lettuce piled up and the toppings served in little bowls along side the platter of cooked meat OR you can create individual wraps by placing one lettuce leaf topped with a couple of piece of meat, some carrots, cucumber and green onions on platter for easy serving.
