Asian Lettuce Wraps ** Mmm Mmm Good

I found this new recipe online and had to try it out. If you have ever been to PF Chang's, these lettuce wraps are very similar. Now I just need to find the yummy dipping sauce.
Surprisingly these were super easy and pretty fast and made a nice change from our usual Chinese night of sweet and sour chicken :)

Start by browning your meat. Drain and put aside to cool.
Chop up a small onion. I mince mine pretty small cuz I don't care for big onion chunks
Next chop up a can of water chestnuts
Brown the onions about 2 mins.
Then add your onion, chestnuts, green onions, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar
After its all heated through toss meat back in
Wash your lettuce carefully so they don't tear. Then...
Oh my goodness these are so super yummy.
We had these with brown rice, potstickers and eggrolls. Oh I wish I was eating them again right now...hehe they really are that good!

Happy Cooking!
