Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients (can't remember where I got this recipe from...)
  • Iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 1 pound lean ground beef/pork
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • Chile pepper sauce to seasoning (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  1. In a medium skillet over high heat, brown the ground meat, stirring often and reducing the heat to medium, if necessary. Drain, and set aside. 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, and sesame oil, and continue cooking until the onions just begin to wilt, about 2 minutes.
  2. 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!
