Elevated Lettuce Wraps | BoneCoach™ Recipes

SERVES: 4

TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

Ingredients

1 lb (454g) grass-fed ground beef or ground bison

1/4 lb (113g) beef, calf, or chicken liver, finely chopped

1 tbsp (15mL) avocado or organic olive oil

1/4 cup (60mL) yellow cooking onion, diced

2 tbsp (30mL) lemongrass stalk, finely sliced

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

1 red Thai chili pepper, finely minced (optional)

1 tbsp (15mL) maple syrup

1/2 of a lime, juiced

1 tbsp (15mL) fish sauce or coconut aminos

1/4 cup (60mL) green onions, finely sliced

1/4 cup (60mL) Thai basil, finely sliced

1 head of loose leaf lettuce leaves

Directions

1) Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add oil, onions, lemongrass, garlic, and chili if using. Cook for 2 minutes until fragrant, and then add in the chopped liver. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring often, until it’s no longer pink. Transfer to a plate.

2) Add the ground beef into the skillet, and using the back of the spatula, break apart the meat. Cook for 5 minutes, then add back in the liver mixture as well as the maple syrup, lime juice, and fish sauce or coconut aminos. Continue cooking another 2-3 minutes.

3) Remove the skillet from heat, and then stir in the Thai basil and green onions. Serve the mixture over lettuce leaves.
