Fried Beef Lettuce Cups à la Provençal with Zucchini

We created this recipe as part of a trio of starters to stimulate your hunger and to pair with a glass (or two) of chilled Mirabeau rosé. With a slight Asian influence, the stir-fried Provençal beef and zucchini (courgette) are served on a bed of little gem lettuce (baby romaine). This light starter works well as an appetizer or a tapas style menu.
