  3. In a saucepan or microwave safe bowl combine the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger. Heat until all the sugar is dissolved.

  4. Preheat griddle to medium high heat.

  5. Add the oil to the griddle.

  6. Add the beef to the griddle and cook until it's crispy on the outside.

  7. Add the sauce and half the sliced green onions to the beef and let the sauce thicken for about 1 minute.

  8. Remove the beef from the heat. Serve in individual lettuce leaves and garnish with sliced green onions

  9. Optional: you can also serve with cooked white rice in the lettuce wraps. Just add the rice and then the beef and sauce on top.
