  • 1

    Wrap the venison steak in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.

  • 2

    Make the marinade: In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, beer, garlic, scallions, pepper, sesame oil, honey, and Asian pear.

  • 3

    Remove the steak from the freezer and slice against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick strips.

  • 4

    Place the sliced venison in the marinade, toss to coat, and let marinate for 30 minutes.

  • 5

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 450°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

    450 ˚F / 232 ˚C

    Remove the steak from the marinade and place it directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and sear the steak until nicely caramelized, flipping once, 2-3 minutes on each side.

  • 7

    Remove the venison steak from the grill. To assemble the lettuce wraps, fill each lettuce leaf with rice, venison, kimchi, scallions, Thai basil, shiso, mint, cilantro, radish, carrots, cucumbers, garlic, chile flakes, and chili sauce. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
