Asian Lettuce Wraps

Our first community garden pick up was today and I used the leaf lettuce and green onions for this delicious meal I have adapted from an search! And my son, who claims he doesn't like beef, had THREE helpings of this! Also, this is very quick to prepare (20 minutes) just not quick enough for my 15 minutes or less section.

large lettuce leaves
1 pound ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons ginger
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1 bunch green onions
2 teaspoons sesame oil

Brown ground beef with the onions. Drain. Add the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, and vinegar, stirring well. Now add the green onions and sesame oil, cooking an additional couple of minutes.
Arrange the beef mixture on top of the lettuce leaves. Serve like that or wrapped like a burrito. Enjoy!

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
