This Lettuce Wraps recipe of mine is a recipe given by a renowned Chef from Guangzhou. I know there is plenty of lettuce wraps but none of them is good enough for me to write the recipe down except for this Lettuce Wrap recipe. Flavorful yet refreshing, the balance of the stir-fried meat with wrapped with fresh lettuce is simply so appetizing!
