New for Epicure Catalogue 2021 is the Crispy and Crunchy Lettuce Wrap! This wrap is easy to make and great for a fast healthy meal on a weekday and can be made in the Epicure Steamer!
It has flavour of garlic and a bit of heat (but to be honest I can’t taste any heat!). YOu can make it with ground pork, ground chicken, tofu or ground beef.
I was nervous making it because I’m Lao (from Laos) and grew up eating it. For those of you who don’t know where Laos is it’s between Thailand and vietnam in South-East Asia.
I took the recipe we made it with ground chicken and then added a dash of fish sauce. I then cut up tiny cucumbers to add to it. The recipe called for two peppers but I used one because I felt like it was a lot!
You can add other things inside the lettuce leaf like Rice vermicelli noodles inside of it so it’s less meat and other fresh veggies.
I would say make the lettuce wrap pieces small so you can pick it up and eat it.
I was exhausted when I made it but was able to make it so quickly~
Overall I was so relieved that this product didn’t suck! Is it as good as my moms? No, haha nothing ever will but a quick easy way to make it!
