Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps

This dish has it all…crunchy veggies, savory protein, satisfying noodles, and a flavorful sauce which provides exceptional flavor. Of course, there’s the fun factor, too: Roll it all up in a big lettuce leaf and grab a napkin. A thin, vermicelli rice noodle is traditional in this type of recipe. Sometimes, I mix it up with a curly, brown rice fusilli.
