Killer Lettuce Wraps
« on: December 13, 2017, 02:11:39 PM »
Ingredients:

1lb ground chicken or turkey
5 or 6 of the small size portabella or sh!take mushrooms
1 onion (your choice)
1 bell pepper (i like the yellow or green with this)
1 can water chestnuts (these are usually hidden away on the bottom shelf of the asian section Vons Ralphs etc). I only use about 3/4 of the small can for this.
(optional) pinch of ginger (would recommend the minced type in jars)

Sauce:
2 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce
1 Tbsp Soy sauce
1 Tbsp Mirin
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Peanut Butter

Prep all veggies down to a fine chop (or as small as you prefer)
cooked meat using EVOO till 1/2 way browned - salt and pepper. I then like to create a clear circle spot in the center of the skillet by pushing meat to the edge.
Add mushrooms to the center spot and cook down. Mix and create new clear spot.
Add onion and bell pepper and cook down but keep a little crunch. Mix and create new clear spot.
Add chestnuts (chopped fine) and ginger. Cook for a few minutes then mix everything together well.
I do add a bit more salt and pepper to taste.

Add sauce ingredients to a bowl and microwave for 1 min to breakdown the peanut butter. Mix well until PB incorporates with the sauce.
Add sauce to your meat mixture and stir well.

That's it! Serve with your favorite type of lettuce cups and enjoy a healthful meal.

Aloha!

Sounds good, but needs more water chestnuts.

You can't catch them from your computer chair.
