A month or so ago I asked on Instagram what kind of recipes you all wanted to see in the new year and one of my local followers requested something using chuck roast. 

Whenever I think of chuck roast my brain always goes to the slow cooker. It’s a tougher cut of meat that has a good amount of fat so the slow cooking process really breaks it down and makes it tender. The roast self-bastes in all that fatty goodness and makes the flavor unreal.

For all those reasons I obvs wanted to use the slow cooker. I also wanted things to be fresh because we’re in the 30th month of winter and I just need something green and light. 

So in comes the glorious lettuce wrap. 

The chuck roast and a handful of Asian ingredients cook away in the slow cooker throughout the day. The sauce is made with beef stock, soy sauce, Thai sweet chili sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, sesame oil and red pepper flakes.

The flavor is deep and rich because of the beef stock and soy sauce. The honey and Thai sweet chili sauce brings the sweet and the red pepper flakes balances it out with some spicy. You can add more or less red pepper flakes to control the spice level according to your tastes. 

Once the meat has cooked the sauce will still be runny so it’s thickened up with a cornstarch slurry to a glossy, perfect consistency. 

To assemble the beef lettuce wraps, pile it up the flavorful shredded beef in a buttery, crunchy lettuce wrap and top with shredded carrots and sliced cucumber for more freshness and crunch. 

It’s rich and fresh at the same time. Perfect to cure the winter blues.
