Mango Beef and Rice Lettuce Wraps

Mango Beef and Rice Lettuce Wraps

Leftover rice paired with an Asian-inspired filling and enveloped in a crispy lettuce leaf offers a fun and lighthearted approach to eating—no utensils required. A healthy and satiating dinner for two, these wraps are as fun to assemble as they are to eat.

What You’ll Need:

Ingredients

1/2 lb trimmed boneless beef sirloin, cut into strips 250 g
2 tsp cornstarch 10 mL
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1/2 onion, sliced 1/2
2 cloves garlic, minced 2
2 tsp freshly grated ginger 10 mL
1/2 tsp red chili flakes 2 mL
2 tbsp soy sauce 30 mL
2 tbsp rice vinegar 30 mL
1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced 1/2
1/2 mango, peeled and thinly sliced 1/2
1 cup

cooked, Tex Farm long grain white rice or Kokuho Rose® white rice

250 mL
6 to 8 Boston lettuce leaves 6 to 8
  Fresh cilantro sprigs or slivered green onions  

Directions

In a medium sized bowl, toss beef strips with cornstarch until well coated.

In large a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beef and sear on all sides, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate; set aside. In same skillet, add onion, cooking until golden, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic, ginger, red chili flakes, soy sauce and vinegar; cook, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add red pepper, mango and beef. Cook, until sauce thickens enough to coat beef, about 5 minutes.

To serve: Spoon rice into a lettuce leaf and top with some of the beef mixture. Top with fresh cilantro or green onions if desired.
