Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil (or vegetable oil, or slightly more, depending on the pan you have)
  • 3 tablespoons red onion (minced, or shallots)

  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce (I used Tamari)
  • 1 tablespoon chile-garlic sauce (or slightly more if you like spicy foods)
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce (probably optional, although I like fish sauce!)

I put the peanuts into the mixture the same time as the cilantro. Best lettuce wrap recipe I’ve found so far! Wish I had doubled it!
This is my daughter's favorite dish and I must admit it ranks in my upper echelon as well. If you prep first it is quite easy to prepare as well.

Quite good. Added a TBSP of hoisin sauce along with doubling up garlic and ginger. So good so easy.

Very flavorful but I used less meat than recommended. Same amount of sauce.
