A few years ago my husband & I dined at P.F. Chang’s and we enjoyed the Chicken Lettuce Wraps. They were great, so I decided I’d try to make my own version at home.
I used turkey instead of chicken and my husbands response was “these wraps are better than P.F. Changs!”. It was a huge compliment.
I’ve been making these for dinner ever since, and they are always a big hit.
They are pretty easy to make once you get the right ingredients…
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb ground lean turkey
Salt & Pepper
1 clove garlic minced
1 small shallot
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
3 tbsp Hoisin Sauce***
2 tsp Sriracha (optional)
Small bunch of cilantro
3 green onions chopped
2 cups bean sprouts
2 carrots cut into thin slices
1 small head of lettuce: I used napa cabbage
First in a large pan you’ll want to brown the turkey meat in a tbsp of olive oil. While thats browning chop your garlic, mushrooms, shallots and other veggies.
When your sprouts are done and the mushrooms (in your meat) are cooked you are ready to assemble your wraps.
Take a few leaves of cabbage (washed) and add: meat, green onions, cilantro, carrots & bean sprouts.
We add more sriracha but that is because we LOVE spicy food.
