1 tablespoon of sesame oil
2.5 tablespoons soy sauce

.5 teaspoons of honey
1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
1.5 tablespoons lime juice
3 stalks green onion, chopped.
.25 cup peanuts chopped (we left out the peanuts).25 cup peanuts, chopped
1 medium head iceberg lettuce
Step 1: Ground the Beef With Onions in a Skillet for the Asian Lettuce Wraps
Get out your pan and brown the meat with the onions. Cook the meat until it is almost cooked and the onion start to wilt. You can add your seasoning if you like. You can use salt and pepper just like the recipe. I found this recipe on pinterest. It was from Onceamonthcooking.com,
Step 2: Add in the Garlic and the Ginger
Then add in the garlic and ginger until the meat has been cooked. The flavors that are coming off the meat right now is so strong. It smells like this is going to be good.
Step 3: Mix in the Bowl of Sauces You Had Sat Aside Earlier
In a bowl mix in the sesame oil, honey, soy sauce, water, sriracha sauce. Add into the ground beef mixture. Stir into the beef and mix to coat.l Cook for a minute or until the mixture thickens. and then remove from heat.
Step 4: Add in the Cilantro and the Green Onions and Lime Juice.
Mix in the cilantro and the green onions and stir in the lime juice and now all you need to do is grab your lose leaf lettuce and wrap the beef mixter around your lettuce. I am sure you will get lots of request make this again. The next time i have a pound for hambuger this is what I'll make.
Step 5: Tear Off Some Lettuce of Your Choice and Eat
Tear and wash off any lettuce leafs that you are going to use. With the lettuce leafs on your plate add a spoonful on the lettuce leaf and roll it up and eat. These are so good and you are getting some greens in your diet also. We are going to try it out with different lettuce. If you are freezing this dish, Let it thaw and then heat and warm it up.
