Got this recipe from Darrel a friend of mine who loves oriental food like me. These are so yummy. I had a little trouble finding the ingredients but please don't delete any. I did use Black Bean Garlic paste because I could find just plain Bean Paste. The Chili sauce is not enough to make it hot which I liked. I followed it exactly. Enjoy

How to Make Korean Lettuce Cups

Step-by-Step

  1. Separate lettuce leaves, rinse and dry. Set aside.
    Mix together the turkey, scallions, ginger, garlic, and sesame oil in a medium bowl. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
