I love salad in the summer. And Justin wanted beef. So, I decided to make Easy Lettuce Wrap!
Now, most recipes call for Hoisen sauce, which is delicious, but we didn’t have any and it’s expensive and didn’t want to go to the grocery store. So, you don’t have to have Hoisen sauce for this recipe!
Serves 2-3
Ingredients
1 head of romaine lettuce (I think it has a better crunch than iceberg)
1/2 lb of ground beef
1/4 c crushed cashews
2 tbsp Terryaki sauce
2 tbsp soy saue
1 tbsp of sesame seeds
dash of red pepper flake
dash of ginger
dash of garlic powder
salt and pepper
Steps
1) Cook some rice in a rice cooker (we used brown rice as we’re trying to be health-conscious for the baby)
2) Cut off the bottom and top of the Romaine lettuce. Separate the leaves and rinse them off.
3) If your cashews aren’t already crushed, carefully chop them with a large knife.
4) Brown the beef in a pot.
5) Turn down the heat and add the soy sauce, Terryaki sauce, cashews, salt, pepper, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, ginger, and sesame seeds. Mix together and let simmer for about 5 minutes.
6) Serve warm and enjoy!
You can add rice on your lettuce wrap or just eat it on the side. I would put the beef in a serving bowl and let everyone decide how much they each want on their own wraps.

  • We make these whenever we buy ground turkey! They are so good and easy to make. We now just chop up the whole head of romaine and eat it like a salad since it's getting hot. Such a great recipe!
