Express Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps

Total Time

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.

My daughter made these for me one day. I was going to post it but found that you already had. My daughter got this recipe from a cookbook called The Healthy Beef Cookbook. It is a very little and tastey meal.

I don't recall where I originally found this recipe, but I've made this before using a very similar recipe (without the mint). I serve the veggies chopped (julienned) and on the side to add as you make your roll. I've made this for a quick easy dinner with our neighbors... everyone loved it! I've also substituted chopped chicken with ok results, am sure you can make a vegetarian version with tofu. This is a fun recipe for an "asian" themed dinner. Make some soba noodles and some Vietnamese summer rolls (goi cuon) and you have a great summer meal. Hope you enjoy it! Cheers
