Welcome again to the home of Easy Healthy Recipes on Budget & Easy Healthy dessert on Budget, Today i will guide you how to make “Asian Lettuce Wraps”. I made this Delicious recipe a few days ago, and I absolutely loved it and enjoyed it with my family. It came out very tasty and flavorful.
Don’t worry it’s easy! This delicious healthy recipe is easy to make and i walks you through the steps and all the ingredients on how to make it!
“margie” : Loved it! Added about 2Tbs of chili paste for spice. Next time I am going to make with ground turkey and add thinly sliced carrots and rice noodles for crunch. I made an asian dipping sauce to add on like at PF Changs (1tsp sesame oil, 2T soy, 2T rice vinegar, 1T chile paste, sugar and i green onion slices)
“rachel” : I’ve been eating lettuce wrap at many Chinese restaurants since I was a little kid, so I have over 3 decades worth of eating this stuff. I’ve tried many different variations and can attest that this recipe is top-notch. However, instead of ground beef, most Chinese restaurants use ground pork or duck. Except for substituting ground beef for ground pork and omitting the pickled ginger (since I didn’t have any in the house), I made no changes to the recipe. As a suggestion, try serving the meat over a bed of crispy rice noodles (vermicelli) as I’ve seen done in many restaurants. Simply heat some oil and dunk a small handful of noodles at a time…they crisp up in a couple of seconds. Not only does it make the presentation nice, it adds a nice crisp crunch to the meat mixture. Also, for extra burst of flavour, put a bit of hoisin sauce (see recipe here as well) before wrapping it up in a lettuce leaf, as one other person suggested.
“darbie” : If I could give 7 stars, I would! My variations: I don’t like ginger & finding pickled ginger wasn’t worth my efforts so I omitted it. I did add a very healthy portion (perhaps up to 2 tbsn) of Thai sweet chili pepper sauce (looks like a clear gelatin with red confetti in it). I thought this tasted EXACTLY like PF Chang’s, but without the hefty appetizer price. The key to getting the taste just right, is the sesame oil. (It has a strong flavor & if it’s missing, won’t quite taste the same as PF Chang’s, but don’t over do it!) For serving these as an appetizer, I used the leaves from butter (Bibb) lettuce. They are sturdy enough, but much smaller than iceberg and have a vibrant green color so they make the perfect appetizer ingredient or the perfect size for kids.
“karry” : I was made this last night for my husband who loves PF Changs lettuce wraps. In trying to be more like those at PF Changs I used chicken instead of beef. Since chicken is a bit dryer I doubled all the liquid except the sesame oil (since it’s so flavorful). I also added crushed peanuts and bambooshoots. My husband was impressed and told me they were just as good as PF Changs.
“dina” : My sister and I are vegetarians. Yesterday, we challenged ourselves to go a week without bread, pasta, grains, etc…. Very hard to do as we feel that’s what fills us instead of meat. I was looking for a good recipe besides our normal pasta, veggie burgers, fruit, and veggies. I came across this recipe and thought that I could make it using Vegetarian Ground Beef (I prefer Boca). It worked out perfectly. I just made it all in one pot. I substituted ground ginger for fresh and left out the chile and chestnuts. Used a little extra soy sauce, and we toasted some sesame seeds and chopped cashews for some crunch. Next time, I think I’ll add some bean sprouts.
“megan” : I used ground chicken and subbed bamboo shoots for the chestnuts bc i wanted the added crunch…they turned out delicious! I also made extra sauce on the side: 1/4 c plum sauce, a tbsp OJ, 1/2 tsp cornstarch, 1 tbsp teriyaki sauce–boil for 1 minute and let cool. Spread a bit on the meat mixture when eating–tastes amazing.
