A Crisp and Refreshing Meal You Can Eat with Your Hands
Lettuce wraps are a smart way to eat Asian stir-fries without having to prepare a starchy accompaniment, such as noodles or rice. Just brown the meat with the seasonings, wash and dry some Bibb or butter lettuce leaves while it sizzles, then let everyone pile spoonfuls of the filling into their edible "cups" (bonus: Their cool taste is a nice counterpoint to the savory meat). This particular dish uses a few powerhouses—ginger, garlic and soy and hoisin sauces—to infuse the ground beef with lots of flavor.
