Asian lettuce wraps

These were YUMMY!!! I will definitely make these again, and they were pretty healthy, as well.


1 lb extra lean ground beef
8 oz can sliced water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
1/2 cup green onions, sliced and divided (greens and whites)
2 T low-sodium soy sauce
2 T molasses
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp ground mustard
1/2 T minced garlic
1/2 T minced fresh ginger
1 T rice wine vinegar
1/8 tsp ground coriander
12-18 large green lettuce leaves, rinsed and dried
1 cup shredded carrots

Over medium heat, brown ground beef, while breaking up into fine chunks. Drain well. Add water chestnuts and 1/3 cup white part of green onions. Cook 2 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together next 8 ingredients. Add to meat mixture, and cook and stir 2 more minutes, until hot.

To serve, take 2-3 lettuce leaves per person, scoop a little meat on each, and sprinkle with shredded carrots and remaining green onions. Wrap up, similar to a burrito, and enjoy!
