Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps with Hoisin-Peanut Sauce

My family loves this peanut sauce, so I will frequently double the recipe.


1 teaspoon canola oil
1 Tablespoon minced shallot
1/3 cup water
2 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
4 teaspoons hoisin sauce
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 lb. ground turkey meat
1 Tablespoon dark sesame oil
6 thinly sliced green onions
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha (hot chile sauce, such as Huy Fong)
1 package broccoli slaw
2 cups hot brown rice
8 Bibb lettuce leaves

To prepare sauce, heat a small saucepan over medium heat.  Add canola oil to pan, swirl to coat.  Add shallot, sauté for 2 minutes.  Add 1/3 cup water, peanut butter, hoisin sauce, and red pepper.  Whisk, bring to a boil; cook 1 minute.  Remove from heat, stir in lime juice.  To prepare the filling, add the sesame oil to a pan over medium heat.  Add the ground turkey until cooked through and crumbly.  Add green onions and sauté for 1 minute.  Add 2 Tablespoons cilantro, soy sauce, ginger, sugar, and Sriracha, sauté for 1 minute.  Add broccoli slaw and cook just until it begins to soften.  Spoon 1/4 cup rice into each lettuce leaf, top with 1/2 cup turkey mixture; sprinkle with 1 Tablespoon cilantro.  Serve with sauce.

Serves: 4
