Recipe Ingredients for Asian Lettuce Wraps

16 Boston Bibb or butter lettuce leaves
1 pound lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons minced pickled ginger
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
8 ounce water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
100 g green onions, chopped
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil

Recipe Directions for Asian Lettuce Wraps

  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, 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 the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar, and chile pepper sauce to the onions, and stir. Stir in chopped water chestnuts, green onions, sesame oil, and cooked beef; 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!
