Beef Lettuce Wraps

These wraps are filled with carrots, cucumber, peppers, and my favorite part, rice vermicelli noodles. I found the noodles in the international section of the grocery store. They are light and kind of sticky but add a nice bulk to the wrap. The sauce made with lime juice, soy sauce and a little sugar  tops off the wraps and adds just the right amount of salty and sweet flavor.

Meal Prep

This beef mixture is great to use for meal prep bowls. Make a double batch and have enough for the week. Make sure to let the mixture completely cool and then pack in a sealed container . Place the lettuce leaves in a separate container. Store in refrigerator until ready to heat and serve.

What lettuce is best for wraps?

There are several lettuce varieties that work well for wraps. My favorite is butter or Bibb lettuce because it is easy to roll. Iceburg lettuce offers a nice crisp crunch. Green leaf and Boston lettuce are great choices too.
