Lettuce Wraps – too good not to share

Sunday night, I made Lettuce Wraps for dinner, following Kristin’s recipe at IowaGirlEats.  She created this recipe to recreate PF Chang’s Lettuce Wraps, and it has gone viral on Pinterst, which is how I found it.  The husband and I only go to PF Chang’s when one of our friends wants to have a birthday dinner there, so that is rarely.  In fact, we’ve never even had their Lettuce Wraps, but some of our friends rave about them, so I thought I’d try the recipe.

The only things I did differently were use ground beef in place of the ground chicken and leave out the water chestnuts (which I despise).  I also made fried rice, only I used quinoa instead of rice, to go with the wraps.   When the husband walked in the kitchen, after I had already plated our portions, he made a comment that the plate didn’t look as appetizing as Kristin’s photo; it all looked brown and ground, pre-digested.  I was worried it would be bad.

 

But then we started eating.  AMAZING!  The wraps were wonderful (and the fried quinoa turned out great too).  I got the official “You can make this again anytime” approval from the husband.

 

Here’s a link to the recipe; it’s definitely worth trying.  I had all the ingredients to make the sauce in the pantry already, so this cost about $8 to make.  We got dinner out of it along with lunch yesterday also.  $8 (plus the cost of the fried quinoa) for 4 meals – not bad.
