How to make it

  • Sauté beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat 5 to 10 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.
  • Add mint, cilantro and next 4 ingredients to beef and stir until heated.
  • Spoon mixture in center of cabbage or lettuce leaves, and roll up.
  • Serve with additional lime wedges, if desired.
  • If you decide to use cabbage leaves, blanching will make the leaves retain texture and color. To blanch, simply add cleaned leaves to boiling water. Let soak for less than 1 minute. Remove leaves and place directly in an ice water bath for 1 minute. Place on paper towels to allow for drainage and use when ready.

    I made this last week for my hubby and me. We have never eaten Thai food! It was very good. I loved the mint flavor with cilantro. And so easy to make. I did think the romaine lettuce leaves were not large enough. I could not roll it, actually. Seams barely laid over each other. But, it was very different and good to try something so unique.

    This sounds heavenly! So different. Will have to try it out ASAP. I don't think I've ever seen Asian fish sauce. Where is it located in the grocery store? Might have to try this out tomorrow if I can find the sauce!

    My roommate came down the stair and asked, "So, did you ever make those Thai Lettuce Wraps you were talking about? It sounds good."

    "I dunno..."I actually replied. "It said easy, but I had to go to the store and stuff.
