PF Chang’s Lettuce Wrap Copycat

I love a good lettuce wrap.  If you find a great chicken or beef recipe with a lot of flavor it tastes so fresh and healthy wrapped in lettuce.  This copycat P.F. Chang’s Lettuce Wrap recipe is a quick prep that freezes well and is great for leftovers.  It is also Paleo friendly, and a Trim Healthy Mama S meal (which is the plan I follow).

Homemade Hoisin Sauce:

Mix all of the following in a mason jar and shake well:

3/4 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup of peanut butter (I use no sugar peanut butter from Trader Joe’s) or Almond Butter if you are Paleo

1 tablespoon of sweetener (I used a stevia blend to avoid sugar, but you can use honey)

4 teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar

4 teaspoons of toasted sesame oil

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:
1. Brown ground beef, and mix with one of my favorite Pampered Chef Mix N Chop or a wooden spoon to cook into crumbles. Drain meat, and set aside.

2.  In the same pan, add the olive oil and onions to sauté them, stirring frequently until they are translucent, about 5 minutes.
