Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps

Submitted by: SLSAWYER74

Introduction

I made this along side the PF Chang's Chicken wraps recipe and served with brown rice.....VERY tasty. It is adapted from one I found on AllRecipes.com.
This recipe does call for quite a bit of prep work but I feel it's worth it in the end. Everything goes quicker if you have a food processer.

Directions

1. Rinse whole lettuce leaves and pat dry, being careful not tear them. Set aside.
2. In a medium skillet over high heat, brown the ground beef in 1 tablespoon of oil, stirring often and reducing the heat to medium, if necessary. Drain, and set aside to cool. Cook the onion in the same pan, stirring frequently. Add teh mushrooms and carrots. Add the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar, and chile pepper sauce to the onions, and stir. Stir in chopped water chestnuts, green onions, and sesame oil, and continue cooking 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. 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!

  • Really, really good. Was too impatient to wash/dry/wrap with lettuce; put a serving's worth in a bowl and ate with a fork. Delicious! - 2/27/13
