Lettuce Wraps

Everyone always eats these up! We keep on hand some dipping sauces- sweet and sour, Thai peanut and sweet pepper sauce. When served this with Teriyaki vegetables and rice this meal still comes in under $10.00.

Prep time: 2 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Serves: 8-10
Cost: $7.50 and under
BU: 1

(I didn't have any water chestnuts
and probably should have added some sauce
for appearances. Oh well, next time I'll get a
better picture. It still tasted good.)

2 pounds lean ground beef or turkey ($3.75)
3 Tablespoons garlic
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 small can water chestnuts chopped ($.50)
Romain Lettuce Hearts (3 for $2.00)

Brown meat in sesame oil and garlic. Add soy sauce and brown sugar. Right before serving mix in water chestnuts. Serve on lettuce. (Picture to come)

This meat mixture can be frozen and then reheated when ready to serve.
