Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients

  • 1lb or 500g of minced lean beef (or turkey, lean lamb, lean pork)
  • 1lb or 500g of mushrooms
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Soy sauce, tamari sauce, or coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp of umami paste or 1
  • 1 Tsp of grated ginger and an extra clove of garlic + more sauce
  • A tsp of Chinese 5 spices
  • Sesame oil
  • Furikake (or sesame seeds to garnish)
  • Gem lettuce hearts

Directions

  1. Sweat the chopped onion on medium to high heat with a tablespoon of sesame oil. After 5 to 7 minutes, add in the sliced mushrooms. Cook until they reduce in size (about 4 minutes).

  2. Add the meat and garlic. Once the meat starts browning, add the Chinese 5 spices and the umami paste or ginger and soy/tamari/coconut aminos sauce to taste.

  3. Cook until the meat is cooked through.

  4. Let it cool down a little bit while you rinse the lettuce and separate the leaves.

  5. Serve either in 2 separate plates and people can make their own wraps, or fill each lettuce leave with the meat and sprinkle the furikake/sesame seeds to decorate.

  6. If you serve it in two different plates, you can sprinkle the furikake or sesame seeds on the meat. Enjoy!
