- 1 Tbsp sambal oelek (chili paste)
- 1 bag slaw mix

- 2 Tbsp sesame oil (if searing steak in pan)
- 2 heads butter leaf lettuce, separated into leaves
- Mao Ploy (sweet chili sauce)
- Fresh mint, for garnish

- Preheat grill to 500 degrees Fahrenheit or preheat a cast iron pan over high heat. In a bowl, combine soy sauce, sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger and sambal oelek. Whisk until combined and power over slaw mix, green onion and mint. Toss well to coat.
- Combine melted butter and miso paste. For skewers, place cubes on wooden or metal skewers, season with salt and sear on grill for 3-4 minutes, turning to cook evenly. Brush with miso butter and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. For pan cooking, heat two tablespoons of sesame oil over high heat and add sirloin cubes. Season with salt and sear 3-4 minutes. Drizzle miso butter over steak and cook an additional two minutes.
- To assemble, fill each butter lettuce leaf with 1-2 tablespoons of slaw. Top with one skewer or 5-6 cubes of sirloin. Drizzle with Mao Ploy, fresh mint and sesame seeds.
