A One-Pot Asian Supper
Lettuce wraps are a great way to eat Asian stir-fries without having to prepare a separate accompaniment, such as noodles or rice. Just brown the meat with the seasonings, wash and dry some Bibb or butter lettuce leaves (their cup-like shape is ideal) while it sizzles, then let everyone pile spoonfuls of the filling into their edible bowls. This particular dish uses a few powerhouses to bump up the flavor, including ginger, garlic, soy and hoisin sauces. Plus, they store well, so you don't have to run to the store to buy new each time you want to make this delicious meal.
