Today I am so excited to share Natasha’s recipe for lettuce wraps! She shared this months and months ago and I have made it many times since, and trying different meats!
I have been trying to find recipe’s that are paleo (so I can justify eating all the holiday sweets!), make enough to serve as lunch the next day, and taste amazing. This easily checks all the boxes!
I have used ground beef, ground chicken, shrimp, and pork to make this recipe, and they are all delicious!
I am not a fan of recipes that call for a lot of ingredients that I don’t normally have around (fish sauce?!) or that I think I will just use once! It turns out fish sauce, and oyster sauce are really inexpensive, and last forever! Also, wheat free tamari, is a paleo substitute for soy sauce. So, if you have soy sauce, or don’t eat paleo, use soy sauce!
I am no expert on paleo, nor am I really that strict, but I love meal options that taste delicious and follow the basic guidelines of the lifestyle!
Warning: these are as messy as they are tasty! Do not try to make them for a cute boy, or fancy dinner! I tied them with bakers twine in an attempt to keep them together, which worked, but they still drip like crazy! The bakers twine also helped them become a work lunch for today!
I suggest pairing this with your favorite white wine, you just cant go wrong with the two!
