Express Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Ducky

This recipe was in the local Sunday paper. It sounded good and is. It is also very easy and quick to prepare. I didn't mix in the vegetables as I was selling it to DS as "Asian tacos." LOL. I did have some tortillas on hand for DS to use also. I did not use mint. Substitute iceberg or romaine lettuce for Boston lettuce, as desired. This recipe can also be found in "The Healthy Beef Cookbook."

We enjoyed these emensly! I forgot to buy cucumber so I subbed bell pepper and sweet onion for it. I also didn't use the mint. My DH told me it was better that the Asian lettuce wrap at one of the chain restaurants. Next time I plan on trying it with the cucumber! Thanks for posting. Made for Help A Naked Recipe.
