1 lb ground beef (90% lean, 10% fat)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, small diced, about 1/2 cup
1 clove garlic, minced
1 inch fresh ginger, finely minced
1 tsp rice vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
2 tsp lime juice
2 tsp coconut aminos
2 tbsp gochujang/Korean red chile paste/miso paste
1 tsp coconut sugar
1/8 tsp salt
3–5 cranks ground black pepper, add more to taste
4-6 leaves bibb lettuce plus more for wrapping
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1 lime, cut in 4 wedges, optional
green onion, for garnish, optional
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and onions, sauté for 3 minutes.
Add the garlic and ginger and sauté for another 1-2 minutes. Add ground beef and cook fully about 5-7 minutes. Add all the other ingredients (except bibb lettuce, rice, & toppings) to the skillet and toss. Sauté for 1-2 more minutes.
Add the mixture into the lettuce cups, top with green onion and add a squeeze of lime. Serve with brown rice and use extra coconut aminos to drizzle on top of lettuce cups, if desired. YUM!
