2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Pickle the daikon and carrots

  • Scrub or peel the daikon; cut the daikon into matchsticks.
In a large bowl, combine the daikon, carrots, and quick-pickle brine. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook your protein

  • Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Chicken breasts or pork loin chops: Pat the meat dry with a paper towel; cut into 1-inch strips. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Shrimp: Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 3 to 6 minutes for steak, shrimp, pork, or tofu and 6 to 8 minutes for chicken. Remove from the heat, stir in the hoisin sauce base, and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the lettuce.


Prep the lettuce

  • Trim the root end from the lettuce; separate the leaves.


Transfer the lettuce leaves to individual plates and top with your protein. Using a slotted spoon, remove the pickled daikon and carrots from the brine and place them on top of your protein. Spoon on as much sambal mayo as you like and serve any remaining mayo on the side.
