Asian Meat Lettuce Wraps


  • 3-4 Spring Onions
  • 1 Red Chilli
  • 400g of Beef or Pork Mince
  • 1/2 Cup of Beansprouts
  • 3 Tablespoons of Tamari
  • 1 Tablespoon of Honey
  • 1 Clove of Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Handful of Fresh Mint

To Serve:

  • Baby Gem/Cos Lettuce
  • Fresh Lime

I can’t describe how good this is, you simply have to try it! It’s so so easy to throw together but it’s bursting with flavour and so satisfying. The combination of gorgeous tamari and honey with fresh mint, spring onion and chilli tastes so incredible in the crunchy lettuce wraps. It’s the perfect protein packed mid week dinner when you’re short on time but still want something amazing and it also tastes so delicious as leftovers, making it the perfect lunch box filler!

Place a pan on medium heat with a teaspoon of coconut oil. Deseed and finely chop your chilli, then add it to the pan. Chop the spring onions, then add most of them to the pan, keeping back a little for sprinkling on before serving. Cook the chilli and spring onion for about 2 minutes.

Add in the beansprouts and mince, using your spatula to break up the meat. Cook until browned, about 3-4 minutes, tossing frequently. If there’s excess liquid, drain it and return the pan to the heat.

While the meat is cooking, combine the tamari, honey and minced garlic. When the meat is ready drizzle in the sauce and let it cook for another minute or two, stirring and tossing so that all the meat is coated in the sauce.

Add the meat to your serving plate/bowl. Finely chop the mint and sprinkle it on with the leftover spring onion. Serve with fresh lettuce cups/wraps and a squeeze of lime.

    This sounds and looks delicious – as is the case with all of your recipes!

    I was diagnosed in May as gluten, dairy and soy intolerant – completely out of the blue for me. I had leaky gut as a result of consuming those foods, over the years.

    I was placed on a very strict diet for three months, to heal my gut – and your lovely website got me through those three months by giving me ‘hope’ of delicious foods in my future, once healed.

    For those who are soy intolerant, there is an alternative to tamari – Coconut Secrets (brand) of coconut aminos. It tastes like tamari, but even ‘cleaner’ in the finish. It’s delicious.
