Instructions
  1. Rub the garlic and ginger all over the filet mignon and season it on all sides with salt and pepper. Next, in a hot saute pan with sesame oil, sear the filet on both sides until golden brown and a medium-rare internal temperature is achieved. Set in the refrigerator to cool. Once cool, slice thin and set aside.
  2. In a bowl toss together sliced beef, bell peppers, carrots, cilantro leaves and sweet soy sauce until coated. Divide the mixture and place a small amount in each of the bibb lettuce leaves and roll up to make a wrap.
