Asian Lettuce Wraps

An Unusual Recipe
Graham

Recipe by  

Asian Lettuce Wraps are stupidly simple and well tasty. Great for a midday snack or light meal and sufficiently unusual that you could even use them as a starter when entertaining the in-laws (but this recipe would then work for 6). Quick and easy to make, Asian Lettuce Wraps will add something unusal to your cooking repertoire.

How to Cook Asian Lettuce Wraps

  1. Separate the lettuce leaves, rinse well and dry them, then set aside. Peel and finely grate the ginger, finely chop the spring onions, peel and crush (mince) the garlic and chop the peanuts. Melt the duck (or goose) fat in a skillet or large frying pan over medium-high heat, then sauté the beef until brown (about 6-7 minutes).
  2. Stir in the grated ginger, chopped spring onions, minced garlic, soy sauce, red pepper flakes and hoisin sauce and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the chopped peanuts. Season with salt and freshly-ground black pepper and serve warm wrapped in lettuce cups .

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
If you have difficulty getting duck fat or goose fat, you can use vegetable oil. However, the fats are healthier and taste much better.
