  • Brown meat in skillet with the Bragg's.
  • Meanwhile, place celery, garlic and ginger into food processor. Pulse until desired consistancy. I chopped mine very finely.
  • When meat is no longer pink add the pepper and salt. Mix.
  • Add remaining ingredients (from food processor) and cook for another 3 minutes or so to blend the ingredients.
  • Turn off heat and remove from stove, add the cilantro. Mix to combine.
  • Place into bowl.
  • Scoop meat mixture into lettuce and wrap, burrito or taco style.
  • Enjoy these delicious wraps.

    I don't understand what Kathleen McMurry is talking about.. This recipe comes up to less than 300 calories, 12g carbs, and 2.2g sugar. Am I calculating wrongly? Or was she, maybe, including the Melba toast and fruit? I still don't see how it could get up to 700 calories! ?

    I'm curious why this recipe is listed as HCG/Phase 2 acceptable. HCG diet allows only 500 calories A DAY and low carb and sugar intake. This recipe logs in at 705 calories, 98 grams carbs and 60 grams of sugar. This would blow the daily intake if you are using HCG Phase 2 protocol. THIS IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO HCG PROTOCOL. Please understand you HCG plan before trying this recipe. Looks great but not HCG.

    This was very good. When I first gave my husband his plate he looked at me like " I am going to starve on this diet aren't I" LOL. But once he tried it he loved it too!

    I make something like this called Laab, Thai Spicy Beef Salad. I am hooked on it and about the only difference is some onion and chili garlic paste in the meat and some fresh mint added with the cilantro and served in lettuce as the wrap. I love this recipe.
