Lettuce Cups

I've made these often, but not often enough.

I love this meal.  
One of the few times I actually enjoy eating "salad" ingredients.

There are many variations of this recipe.

Here is mine.

Asian Lettuce Cups - Print Recipe 

Use this as an outline.
Measurements are just approximate. I don't measure anything.

1 or 2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 pound of chicken breasts ground, or
lean ground pork
1 minced garlic clove
1 or 2 teaspoons minced ginger
1/2 cup chopped  onion
chicken broth
3 green onions chopped
Bean sprouts
fresh chopped cilantro
Lettuce Leaves

Heat oil and saute the onions, when soft add the  ground chicken or pork.  Do not brown.  Add the garlic and the ginger.   Add a little chicken broth to stop the meat from sticking.  Simmer until meat is cooked.  Season with salt. Remove from the heat and add the green onion.


(season to suit own taste)

1/2 cup rice vinegar
1 or 2 tablespoons of garlic chili sauce or Thai sweet chili sauce.
minced ginger
minced garlic
sesame oil to taste

Additional ingredients.
Peanuts (Optional)
toasted sesame seeds
Chopped water chestnuts

To serve, spoon on to lettuce leaves and drizzle on a little of the sauce. Top with bean sprouts and cilantro
