Okay, they’re actually better than the P. F. Chang’s Lettuce Wraps. Here’s why: ground turkey meat. It adds so much more flavor, texture and boldness making it a more hearty dish = entree. It’s also pleasantly easy to make! Check out the recipe below and get to it.
P. F. Chang’s-ish Lettuce Wraps
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 can of water chestnuts, drained and quartered
- ¼ cup yellow onion, finely diced
- ¼ cup scallion, sliced thin
- ¼ cup Hoisin sauce
- ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
- ¼ cup sweet chili sauce
- 2 TS rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
- 1 Iceberg or Boston lettuce, washed and leaves separated
- Chili flakes, to taste
- ¼ cup Vegetable oil
- In a wok or large skillet, heat oil and cook the turkey meat over medium-high heat until fully cooked and starts browning, about 10 minutes
- Add minced garlic, yellow onion and desired amount of chili flakes and cook for another 2 minutes
- Add Hoisin, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce & vinegar and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently on medium heat
- Taste and re-season if necessary
- Add water chestnuts, mix well and remove from heat
- Cover to stay warm
- Spoon the mixture in lettuce leaves and top with scallions.
You can add sliced asparagus, broccoli or your favorite veggie to the mixture if you want some different textures; just add veggies after adding the sauces and cook for a few minutes.
Yummmmy town! These guys are addicting and so easy to make, we have them constantly. You can also start mixing up the extra ingredients to make it more Latin or Mexican inspired (this is also great taco filling too!).
