How to make it

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the sesame oil and heat. Add the cabbage and carrots and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Add the beef and cook, stirring, until the beef is heated and the cabbage begins to wilt, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the hoisin sauce and soy sauce and cook 5 minutes, until mixture heats through and cabbage wilts, stirring frequently.
  • Place spoonful of mixture in lettuce leaf and hold closed with toothpick. I put the toothpick through a flower before adding to lettuce to feed the eyes, as well as the tummy.
  • For curried couscous:
  • Bring the water to a boil. Place the couscous in a heatproof bowl and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and curry powder. Pour the boiling water over the couscous and cover for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  • Serve the lettuce wrap on top of the couscous. A great first course for a wonderful dinner.
