Korean Lettuce Wraps

This deliciousness of what I like to call Korean Lettuce Wraps came from a recipe I made years ago for a date night my husband and I had when I first implemented date night. It was easy, let me rephrase that…….it was so easy! Originally when I made it I served it over steamed brown rice. Which is the way we enjoy it. My husband liked it so much that when I ask him what he wants for date night I get this answer A LOT. I’ve probably made it at least eight times at this point. One day last year I had leftovers and wanted to make a healthier option out of lunch the following day so these Korean Lettuce Wraps were created! If your on the 21 Day Fix diet like me you can easily make 2-3 lettuce wraps. Your welcome!
