Thai Lettuce Wraps
Off the cuff measurements, cheap, easy, quick and very good.
Ground meat of choice (I'll be using 2 lbs of turkey and beef mixed)
8 oz of fresh mushrooms, any kind, diced
2 or 3 shallots, minced
2 or 3 garlic cloves, minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
A few T foreshadowing ginger, minced
2 jalapeño peppers, minced
@2 T each peanut sauce and hoisin sauce
2 T each of rice wine vinegar and fish sauce
A few shots of Rooster sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Brown the meat, drain most excess oil. Add the mushrooms, shallot, garlic, vinegar and fish sauce. Medium high heat for a minute or so. Add the jalapeño pepper, ginger, hoisin and peanut sauces. Stir in...simmer a minute or so. Add the red bell pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Remove from heat.
To serve, use bib lettuce leaves, garnish with fresh cilantro, julienned cucumber, a squeeze of lime and more Rooster sauce if you can take the heat. Damn good.
