Daily Grill Restaurant at Westin Portland

There is nothing like a live chef demo! Portland area influencers were treated to a cooking demo by Daily Grill Chef Tom as they gathered for #TNTPortland, a tech and travel show put on by TravelingMom and Techlicious, along with sponsors Westin Portland, Hasbro, CEA, and VidMob.

Before their very eyes, Thai Spiced Steak Lettuce Wraps were created and enjoyed and we wanted to share the recipe with our readers. Thank you to Westin and the Daily Grill for sharing this delicious lettuce wrap recipe.
