    These were wonderful! Made a couple of changes which I don't think affected the overall flavor much...I couldn't use the red chilli pepper, so I used a red bell pepper. Didn't have shitake mushrooms so I just used regular buttons and I didn't have shallots so I used a yellow onion. I really prefer to use romaine in lettuce wraps because they are sturdy and taste better than iceberg, but I actually only had red leaf, which is delicious, but not very sturdy so it made it a bit harder to eat, but we made it work :) I served this with a sauce I made to either dip or just drizzle over which consisted of 1/2 soy, 1/2 water, fresh grated ginger, garlic powder, and sugar. went perfect on this! So good, we all loved it!

    That is a lot of ingredients. Truth be told, when I see that many ingredients in a recipe - I usually go find another. You're very ambitious. :) It looks delicious - and healthy! :)

    I chopped up my veggies which actually took the longest (which wasn't long at all) and everything else just kinda fell in place, just grabbing stuff out of the fridge. I forgot to say I made some white rice to put in these as well to add that needed starch for the families happiness and that took longer than getting this recipe thrown together!

    You're too young to know this phrase from an old commercial, but "Where's the beef"? : P

    Your gonna love these if you try them then Chuckie!

    I have heard that phrase before but the actual Wendy's commercial (okay I looked this up out of curiosity) that aired that phrase was in 1984, one year after I was born :)
