Korean Tacos/Lettuce Wraps

~30 min, feeds two

A very simple but flavorful meal.
Ingredients:
  • 1lb beef
  • rice
  • several large intact lettuce leaves
  • diced onions and mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce
Cook the rice first.
Secondly cook the ground beef, mushrooms, and onions in a skillet over medium heat.
Mix the spices, sesame oil, and diced garlic together in a separate bowl.

Add the soy sauce in small amounts until the spices are all evenly mixed in the liquid.
  Then pour the mixture over the cooked beef. And cook for about 5 more minutes to soak the spices into the meat.
 Pull a couple of large lettuce leaves out for use. Serve the rice and beef in a lettuce leaf or two and eat like a taco.
