  1. Wrap the venison steak in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Make the marinade. In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, raw sugar or brown sugar, beer, garlic, scallions, pepper, sesame oil, honey, and Asian pear.
  3. Remove the steak from the freezer and slice it across the grain into 1/4-inch-thick strips.
  4. Place the sliced venison into the marinade, toss to coat, and let marinate for 30 minutes.
  5. When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 450°F and preheat with the lid closed, for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove the steak from the marinade, and place directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and sear the steak until nicely caramelized, flipping once, 2-3 minutes on each side.
  7. Remove the venison steak from the grill. To assemble the lettuce wraps, in a lettuce leaf, add some rice, venison, kimchi, basil, shiso, mint, cilantro, radish, carrots, cucumbers, chili flakes, and top with your favorite chili sauce, as desired. Enjoy!
