Teriyaki Turkey Lettuce Cups
Serves: 15
  • 1 head of Bibb or Boston lettuce
  • 1 lb. ground turkey (I used Jennie-O brand)
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • ¼ c. soy sauce
  • ¼ c. hoisin sauce
  • 1 T. lime juice
  • 1 T. sriracha (more if you like heat)
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 T. minced dried onion
  • ¼ c. chopped cashews
  • ½ c. grated carrots
  1. Begin with the lettuce: strip off the leaves, keeping them intact in large cup shapes.
  2. Then, wash and dry the leaves thoroughly and set them aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, whisk together the brown sugar, soy sauce, hoisin, lime juice, sriracha, garlic powder, ginger, and minced onion; bring to a boil.
  4. Boil for a minute or two, until the sauce is thick and glaze-like.
  5. In the meantime, in a separate skillet brown the ground turkey until fully cooked.
  6. Drizzle in as much of the teriyaki sauce as you'd like, to season the turkey.
  7. Toss the meat to coat it in the teriyaki sauce.
  8. Scoop the seasoned meat into the lettuce cups, and top with carrots and cashews for texture.
