Steak Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce

Simple Clean and Homemade I Steak Lettuce Wraps 4

I love a lettuce wrap. I think it is about the interactive aspect of them. I like any food that involves dips and then add on top of the dip that I actually get to play with my food. It might just be the perfect meal. Add on top of all of that the textures. The crunchy lettuce, the hot steak with the cool center, the spicy sweet peanut sauce. The flavor and texture combinations are amazing.

I love this peanut sauce. It is so versatile. We use it in stir fry, on salads, to make a quick pasta salad. It makes everything just taste better. For these lettuce wraps I used peanut butter, but you can substitute almond butter for tasty results.
