Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  •  small pkg mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce or general tso sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 cup cooked  brown rice
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Romaine lettuce, for serving

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add ground turkey and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the turkey as it cooks; drain excess fat and set aside.
  • Add garlic, bell pepper, mushrooms, and onion to the saucepan. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Stir in whatever  stir fry sauce (hoison or general tso), soy sauce, ginger and ground turkey until well combined. Add rice and green onions and gently toss to combine.
  • To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the turkey mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf.
  • We added Gyoza dipping sauce from Trader Joe’s drizzled on top of each lettuce cup.

I keep thinking about how many different combinations you could make with this.  We didn’t have any hoison sauce but I did have this Target brand of General Tso’s sauce and it worked out great.  If your looking for a great meal to make this week – try this out!

  2. Why people still use to read news papers when in this technological globe all is accessible on net?|

  3. What you posted made a lot of sense. But, think on this, what if you were to write a killer headline?
    I ain’t saying your information is not good., but suppose you added a post
    title to maybe grab folk’s attention? I mean Quick
    and Easy Lettuce Wraps is kinda boring. You might look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write news titles to grab people to click.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people
    excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your
    website a little livelier.
