Come on! Stir fry seasoning powder???! Gross! Next recipe please, this one's not even close to any restaurants lettuce wraps or even a good lettuce wrap. How is this a blue ribbon recipe? Blue ribbons should be reserved for only natural ingredients. No telling how much sodium and other chemicals are in that stir fry seasoning.

I made these last night with some Chinese Cols Slaw. They were great together. I added some mushrooms and sesame oil (just a touch) Was a big hit with the roommate and friends.
