I often struggle with what to do with "all that lettuce" we get in our CSA box at the beginning of the season. Even with a half share we have 1.5 to 2 huge heads of lettuce a week. I love salad, don't get me wrong, but one can only eat so much salad, you know? So I tried out some lettuce wraps.
We had some ground pork in the freezer (again from Fischer Farms). You could easily substitute ground turkey or chicken, which I will most likely do next time.
I browned it in a combination of canola oil and toasted sesame oil. I used about a teaspoon of each. When the meat was mostly browned, I added about a teaspoon of rice wine vinegar, 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar, and 2 Tablespoons of Tamari (you can use regular soy sauce instead). I then added about 1/2 cup of diced celery and 1/4 cup diced red pepper cooked the mixture for a few more minutes. Right at the end I added 3 scallions, chopped, with both the white and green parts for the last 2 minutes or so. We built our lettuce wraps with the meat mixture, shredded cabbage and carrots (aka cole slaw mix), sriracha hot sauce, Trader Joe's Sesame Ginger Soy dressing/ marinade, and of course, whole lettuce leaves. For the less discerning palate, there were strips of ham and cheese, the cabbage and carrots (aka "crunchies") and ranch dressing.
