While I was on vacation in Florida, I went to happy hour at a restaurant called The Grand Luxe Cafe. Who doesn’t love half off appetizers?? I had always wanted to try lettuce wraps but when I have to choose something over any of the deliciously bad for you fried options, I could never bring myself to do it. But this time, I finally did, and they were absolutely DELICIOUS! So when I got home I decided to look on Pinterest for a recipe that MIGHT be somewhat similar. Unfortunately, I have to keep looking. I found two separate recipes that were very similar but had a few different ingredients in each I wanted to incorporate.
These are the two recipes I used:
I used the Marinade and Sauce ingredients exactly as listed on emilybites. The filling ingredients is mostly what I changed up just because I wanted a few more veggies included. I sautéed it all as directed but then also put it in a slow cooker on low for a few hours because I made it way ahead of time.
I made this for my friends and it earned 2 out of 3 forks (pretty clever rating system, right? haha). They loved it, or at least said they did, but I felt like it was lacking in flavor…it was just missing something and I don’t know what.
My search will continue and hopefully I’ll get a better recipe next time!
