Asian Lettuce Wraps

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Rachel Castro 0

"Delicious and bursting with flavor, Asian lettuce wraps are a great idea for entertaining or a family style meal. Each person can build their own fresh, delicious wrap. Just be sure to have plates or napkins available since the mixture can sometimes drip a little. To serve, allow each person to spoon a portion of the meat into a lettuce leaf. Wrap the lettuce around the meat like a burrito and enjoy!"

  1. Rinse whole lettuce leaves and pat dry, being careful not tear them. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and cooking oil in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease; transfer beef to a bowl. Cook and stir onion in the same skillet used for beef until slightly tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir hoisin sauce, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, and chile pepper sauce into onions. Add water chestnuts, green onions, sesame oil, and cooked beef; cook and stir until the onions just begin to wilt, about 2 minutes.
  3. Arrange lettuce leaves around the outer edge of a large serving platter and pile meat mixture in the center.

I wish I could give this 4.5 stars, because it's dangerously close to a 5-star recipe, but it's not quite there. I gotta tell you, this recipe is an AWESOME way to sneak in those veggie soy cru...

If I could give 7 stars, I would! My variations: I don't like ginger & finding pickled ginger wasn't worth my efforts so I omitted it. I did add a very healthy portion (perhaps up to 2 tbsn) of...

I was made this last night for my husband who loves PF Changs lettuce wraps. In trying to be more like those at PF Changs I used chicken instead of beef. Since chicken is a bit dryer I doubled...

I used ground chicken and subbed bamboo shoots for the chestnuts bc i wanted the added crunch...they turned out delicious! I also made extra sauce on the side: 1/4 c plum sauce, a tbsp OJ, 1/2 ...

I have made this recipe and loved it, only change was to used fresh minced ginger, since like so many I did not have pickled ginger. This is in my stack of favorites.

I made this as directed minus the water chestnuts and green onions as I didn't have any, but it was still really good. My husband and I have never had PF Chang's (they dont' have them here), but...
