This has become a weekly favorite so I figured it should get the 5 stars it deserves! Of course, it can be modified according to what you have on hand. Sometimes I use fresh bean sprouts instead of cabbage or no cabbage at all. I cut the crushed red pepper to 1 tsp. for 1 1/2 lb ground beef and use 1/2 tsp dry ground ginger. We prefer romaine lettuce 'boats'. Thank you for a marvelous recipe!

A simple, healthy, scrumptious lunch that looked somewhat like an exotic flower when the butter lettuce is rolled at a slight slant. I did cut the crushed red pepper flakes just a bit as DH does not like too much heat. Thanks for the post.

Nice flavor!!! I only had romaine lettuce and that does not wrap well at all. Definitely use iceberg or a nice butter lettuce. Next time I make it, I will chop the cabbage much finer. I was out of fresh ginger and used ginger powder. The flavor was imparted nicely.
