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
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!!
