Total Time20 minutesminutes
1lbextra lean ground turkey, or any other ground meat
1garlic clove, minced
2large stalks lemongrass-tender pale inner core only, minced
1teaspoonful seasoned rice vinegar
1 ½teaspoonful garlic chili sauce
small handful of cilantro, chopped
butter lettuce leaves, or your favorite lettuce, for serving
In a large wok (or non stick skillet), heat oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and shallot and cook for 15 seconds, then add ground turkey. Break up the meat with a spoon, tossing/stirring often, until meat is cooked through.
Once the turkey is cooked through, check and see if there is a lot of grease left over in the bottom of the pan. If there is, drain the meat, and then re-add to the wok. If not, skip to the next step.
Add the scallions, lemongrass, cashews, rice vinegar, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and garlic chili sauce. Toss well to ensure everything is coated. Allow to cook for another 2-3 minutes and remove from heat and sprinkle with cilantro.
To serve, separate leaves of lettuce and wash with warm water; pat dry. Spoon the turkey mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf and eat like a taco! Enjoy!
