Low carb doesn’t have to mean low flavor. An overnight marinade ensures a pungent punch of fresh ginger, garlic and soy sauce in these Honey-Soy Beef Lettuce Cups. And all that flavor means there’s no need for high-sugar, high-calorie dipping sauces. A touch of honey caramelizes the meat, while crisp lettuce, carrots and scallions add a fresh crunch to every bite. Low carb never tasted so good.
