Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps with Pork Fried Rice for dinner! It definitely hit the spot and with my roommate’s kids being gone, I actually have leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch.
In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat add sesame oil. Brown the beef and use a slotted spoon to remove it from the pan. Set aside.
In a sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the sauce ingredients, minus the cornstarch and cold water, and bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer.
Meanwhile, add onion, carrots and water chestnuts to the Dutch Oven, sautéing until tender. Add ginger and garlic until fragrant. Mix the beef in and pour the sauce over top; mixing until well coated. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and cold water, then pour the slurry over the beef filling. Stir frequently until thickened.
Serve with lettuce leaves; topped with sticky rice. Garnish with Sesame seeds, toasted nuts or green onions.
