Eat Your Heart Out Mr. Chang-Asian Lettuce Wraps!

August 4, 2009

I may not have found good Thai yet down here in the South, but I just made some HOLY YUM lettuce wraps that give the ones I tried with my mom at PF CHANGS a run for their money. These are quick, easy, healthy, and very very tasty! I have to thank Ashley over at Delish for this inspiring recipe!

PICT0399 Recipe:

  • 1pkg ground chicken or lean turkey
  • dash of toasted sesame oil
  • 4T soy sauce
  • 1 red and yellow pepper diced (or 2 peppers of choosing)
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • big glob on minced ginger
  • 2-3 big globs of minced garlic
  • 3 oz mushrooms, diced

Brown the meat in a pan with the sesame oil. Add soy sauce, peppers, onions, ginger, and garlic and saute until soft. Add mushrooms and saute. If you want some kick you can add 1tsp Sriachi (that’s what Ashley recommends) I’m a pansy when it comes to spicy.

Meanwhile, grab some bibb or boston lettuce. Separate, wash, and dry the leaves, place on a plate for serving, this is what you’ll spoon your meat into.

Dipping sauce:

I mixed, rice vinegar, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, and some teriyaki sauce together with a dash of sweetner to add. It was great! You could add chili flakes for a little kick to this as well.

This makes a lot! So I definitely have leftovers and will be great to stuff in a pita, add to some quinoa, make an asian salad with etc. This recipe could easily serve 3-4.

I used to eat my easy, throw together broccoli slaw constantly when I was craving Asian, but I think I found myself a new addition to the lineup!
