Cooking MethodSkillet


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter (natural if possible)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Romaine Lettuce (as much as you like)


  1. Brown meat in large nonstick skillet or wok, about 5 minutes, then drain fat.

  2. Add red peppers, garlic and ginger, and chili flakes. Cook about 4 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk together peanut butter, sesame oil, soy sauce, lime juice, and cilantro. NOTE: You may do this step before you begin cooking. It just ads about 2 minutes to cooking time.

  4. Remove meat from heat. Add the peanut butter sauce to the meat and mix in the skillet or wok.

  5. Serve on a bed of the lettuce, or serve the lettuce and meat separately so the diners can make their own wraps.
