Ground Beef Lettuce Wraps

 

  • While I understand that “egg roll in a bowl” is popular, the taco lover in me wants to scream “There’s a wrap for that!!” Also, trust me, I get why bowls are fun.
  • There are more than six bowl recipes on this page alone, and I’ve written whole books about them. But if the bowl isn’t food, it’s not better than putting food in other food.

INGREDIENTS

  • Fresh, whole food items are used in this recipe, and it can be changed to fit a variety of diets:
  • This recipe doesn’t have any gluten in it if you use tamari or coconut aminos.
  • If you can’t have any grains, use arrowroot powder and broccoli rice instead of cornflour.
    Instead of soy sauce, use coconut aminos in your paleo ground beef lettuce wraps.
  • Serve them with cauliflower rice and real maple syrup for a sweet touch.
  • If you want to make low-carb beef lettuce wraps, don’t use the filling. Instead, use cauliflower rice and sweetness that comes from monk fruit or stevia.

TOMATO SAUCE.

  • Whisk the sauce’s ingredients together until they are well mixed. You can make the sauce ahead of time by up to one day.
  • COOK. In a 12-inch pan, cook the ground beef until it’s no longer pink. Use a wood spoon or spatula to break it up into small pieces.
  • BODY SMELLS. Add the ginger and garlic, and cook for another one to two minutes while stirring all the time.
  • HARD VEGS. Cook for three to four minutes, until the carrots and bell pepper are soft.

  • put steamed white rice or cauliflower rice between the ground beef lettuce wraps and the beef mixture.
  • Meal Prep It: These are great for reheating! Separate the leaf wraps and ground beef stuffing. Heat the stuffing in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds, then put it in the wraps.
  • The sauce is already thick enough without the thickener because we added a little arrowroot powder. If you want the sauce to be lighter, you can skip this step.
  • Dipping Sauce: Set aside ⅓ of the sauce before you add the arrowroot powder or cornflour. When you serve, use the sauce that you saved as a dipping sauce.
  • More veggies: You can add more veggies if you want to! Use green or red cabbage shreds and/or zucchini shreds. On top of that, we like to use pickled radishes when we have them.
