Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps

My friend Alison has the best recipes! I have posted a few of hers before. She sent me this after posting a picture on Instagram a few weeks ago and I made it shortly afterward. These wraps are delicious and could be altered in many ways adding or subtracting ingredients. The original recipe calls for water chestnuts, but I do not care for them and left them out.

Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps

1lb of ground beef or turkey
1/2 red pepper
head of lettuce
1 carrot or a handful of pre shredded carrots
Cilantro to taste
2 garlic cloves
2T Hoisin Sauce
2T Soy Sauce
2 tsp Sriracha sauce
handful of peanuts chopped

Cut pepper into strips. Shred carrot. Chop cilantro.  Begin browning beef in a pan. Season with hoisin and soy sauce. Add sriracha if you prefer it spicy. Cook until no longer pink. Add garlic and continue cooking until completely brown. Add carrots and red pepper to the skillet. 

Serve beef mixture topped with cilantro and peanuts in a lettuce wrap.
