How to Make Venison Lettuce Wraps


  • 1Rinse lettuce leaves, keeping them whole. Set aside to drain.
  • 2Cook venison in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring often to break up the meat. Add onion, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar, and chili sauce.
  • 3Cook until the meat is crumbled and brown. Add water chestnuts or bamboo shoots and green onions. Cook until onions begin to wilt, about 2 minutes. Stir in sesame oil.
  • 4Arrange lettuce leaves on the outer edge of a platter. Spoon meat mixture into center of the lettuce leaves and eat like a taco.
    ( I used two different stir fry mixes I had in the freezer, so we dressed it up with squash, cauliflower, asparagus, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, broccoli, carrots, and snap peas in addition to the onions
