What kind of meat to use?
Traditionally, these wraps are made with ground chicken, which I am using today. I have tried them with ground pork and beef also and they are equally delicious. Use whatever is on hand. Or, try finely diced chicken. You can also make a great meatless Monday option with cauliflower or mushrooms.
Bell Pepper – Red today, but use whatever you prefer.
Aromatics – Ginger & garlic.
Sauces – Tamari, chili garlic, white vinegar.
Monk fruit sweetener – Optional.
Boston or butter lettuce
Give your onion a quick sauté, till it turns translucent.
Add chicken and sauté for a few minutes.
Add veggies, aromatics and sauces. Cook for a few minutes till chicken is fully cooked. garnish with cilantro and green onions.
Scoop mixture into lettuce leaves. DONE!
Other options for the leftover meat mixture: have it over cauliflower rice or use it in stuffed zucchini!
As stated above, this is great with any type of ground meat or finely diced chicken.
Spice it up with a little sriracha or red chili flakes.
Give it a Korean twist by adding 1 Tbsp Gochujang paste.
