Asian Turkey Cabbage Wraps

This is a little twist on my favorite chicken lettuce wraps. I had ground turkey on hand [ not to mention it crumbles up nice and small which is good for these wraps] and Cabbage packs more nutritional punch than lettuce. Also, good to know, in raw form the Napa Cabbage has a very mild-lettuce like flavor.

1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar 
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar 
1⁄4 teaspoons Ground black Pepper 
2 tsp ground mustard
1⁄4 teaspoons Ground Ginger [powdered]
1.5 TB Sesame Oil 
3 TB Soy Sauce
 2 Tablespoons extra light Olive Oil--for stir frying
1 lb ground turkey, browned, drained
1 cup Diced Green Onion [about 4 or 5 whole green onions, white tip to end of green] 
 3 cloves Garlic, Minced 
1 medium carrot, cut into skinny straws
2 cups shredded cabbage
 8 leaves Of Chinese Napa Cabbage, Washed And Dried

Prep Time 15 Minutes Cook Time 15 Minutes
Servings 3
Difficulty Easy

For stir fry sauce, mix together rice vinegar, brown sugar, ground pepper, ground ginger, ground mustard, sesame oil, and soy sauce, making sure to dissolve brown sugar [I heated it all for about 30 seconds in microwave to be sure]. Set aside. 
Brown meat, and remove from pan. 

To hot pan, add olive oil and onions, carrots, cabbage, and garlic to pan; brown about 2-3 minutes. When onions, cabbage, and garlic are tender, add stir fry sauce and browned turkey. Saute mixture for a few minutes 3-5 and remove from heat. 

Spoon mixture into individual raw cabbage leaves. 
***I add crunchy Chow Mein noodles to each roll up, for a bit of crunch--SOOOOO Delicious!!
