Make your friends happy by bringing these delicious Asian Lettuce Wraps to the next gathering. They’ve got loads of flavor and are super easy to make. I guarantee you won’t have any leftovers, which is kind of a bad thing since they’re so good.
I substituted ground turkey (93% lean) for the ground beef, and used Romaine lettuce leaves since the store I was at didn’t have Boston lettuce. I had some ginger in the fridge that was already minced so I used that instead of grated ginger. For something a bit heartier, serve the cooked meat mixture over rice. Enjoy!
