Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking
Chop all the marinade ingredients in a mini-chopper, then empty them into a bowl.
Slice the steak across into thin strips, then add these to the bowl, pushing them down well into the marinade.
For the dipping sauce, mini-chop all the ingredients, give them a good burst, then pour into a bowl.
To cook the steak, heat a frying-pan lightly brushed with oil till very hot, then add the strips of steak.
Cook for 30 seconds, then flip them over with a fork and spoon (or tongs) and give them another 30 seconds before transferring to a warm serving dish.
To serve: roll up strips of steak, shredded spring onion, cucumber and coriander in the lettuce leaves, swirling them in the dipping sauce - and have plenty of paper napkins handy.

Chopsticks at the ready: like all stir-fries, this flavourful recipe is quick and easy to make and is a great way to eke out a piece of steak for two people.
Although this is described as a casserole, it actually cooks in no time at all, producing a depth of flavour that's quite irresistible.
Teriyaki sauce may sound exotic but it's well worth trying: simply a mixture of soy, mirin, sake, sugar, ginger and garlic, these ingredients are used to marinate the steak, producing a tender, flavourful result.
