  • Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the shallot, carrots, and water chestnuts and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots begin to soften, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Season the ground beef with salt and pepper and add to the pan.
  • Cook, breaking up, until the meat is no longer pink in the center, about 5-7 minutes. Drain any excess grease from the pan.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, garlic, and ginger. Mix well.
  • Add the sauce to the pan and stir to combine. Cook 1-2 minutes or until heated through.
  • Serve by filling leaves of lettuce with the ground beef mixture and top with sriracha, sesame seeds, and/or slices of green onions, if desired.



Tips and Techniques for the Best Ground Beef Lettuce Wraps

  • Use ground turkey to make these wraps a bit healthier. You can also use ground pork or chicken, if you prefer.
  • You can drizzle on sriracha, if you prefer them to be spicier.
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
