Thai Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Let’s get started!

First let’s make the sauce.  This can be made well in advance and refrigerated until ready to use.

In a bowl, add the lime juice, soy sauce, Thai red curry paste, sesame oil and sriracha (if using).  Whisk to combine.

For these Thai Lettuce Wraps you can use your choice of ground beef, veal, pork, chicken, turkey, or wild game.

Heat some oil in a skillet and cook the ground meat until no pink remains (I’m using my made in the USA 5-ply Heritage Steel 12″ Fry Pan.  I love it!)  Drain the liquid.

cooking the meat

Add the shredded red cabbage, chopped red peppers and carrots, minced garlic and ginger and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened but still retaining some crunch.

adding and cooking the veggies

Add the sauce and lemongrass and cook for another minute.
