Let’s Wrap | Lettuce Wraps
No carbs doesn’t mean no flavor. Here’s a very simple alternative wrap you can do with chicken or beef (or both) that’s surprisingly delicious.
Boneless chicken works best in a wrap. Season with green seasoning or spices of your desired flavor.
On beef, salt and black pepper is essential. But you can add more spices to give it a little twist without overpowering the beef.
You can prepare your meat any way you like it. We went with a quick pan sear, but feel free to try a grilled version without oil, or even a BBQ version if the grill is out.
For chicken, sear both sides until they’re brown (about 3 minutes each side) then finish them off in the oven. About 10 to 15 minutes.
For the beef, sear for about 2 to 3 minutes each side or to your desired temperature.
Slice beef in thin slices. Especially with tougher cuts that have less fat, this will help the texture.
Slice chicken thick enough so the pieces stay firm, but thin enough to spread through your wrap.
Get your lettuce. You can cut out the firm lower rib so it’s easier to wrap.
Take a little portion of meat (you don’t want it overstuffed) and spread it over a portion of the lettuce.
Add condiments of your preference. We used a creamy garlic sauce…
And a tangy salsa to up the flavors.
Roll the lettuce to encase the filling, then cut on the bias.
And that’s it. A nice treat with not so much guilt.
Try it with fish or seafood too. The possibilities are endless.
