Asian Lettuce Wraps

I love Asian food. I can eat it all day long and still not be tired of it. I found this recipe floating around somewhere whether it was on facebook or the recipe board and knew I had to make it. I had to make a few adjustments considering the original recipe states to use 1 oz of szechuan seasoning mix. My package was 3/4 oz and had 3g of carbs per serving. One package had 4 servings! That's a lot of carbs for 1 serving of meat the original recipe stated for 7 oz of ground turkey. Maybe there is another seasoning with less carbs. Anyways, 2 teaspoons was more than enough for me. Very, very tasty. I used ground beef and I loved how it turned out. With one pound of ground beef, I got two meals and still had 2 oz left of meat that I will save for another meal. I definitely recommend this one. Sometimes I don't even feel like I am on a diet. Thank goodness for that. Otherwise, I am not sure how long I would last. I will continue to make this even after Medifast. Enjoy!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

14 oz 93% lean ground beef - should yield 10 oz cooked (2 Leans)
3 cups of shredded cabbage or bagged cole slaw mix (6 greens)
2 tablespoon lite soy sauce (2 condiments)
2 teaspoons packaged szechwan seasoning mix (3 condiments) *See note below
Add any additional water
iceberg lettuce leaves (optional)

Get a wok (or non stick pan) very hot. Cook the meat and break it up into very small pieces. When its no longer pink, add the cabbage and pour the sauce over mix. Continue cooking on high heat just until the cabbage starts to wilt. I sprinkled red crushed pepper on it.

2 Servings with 1 Lean, 3 Greens, and 2.5 Condiments per Serving

* The Szechwan seasoning mix I found in my local grocery store had 3 g of carbs per 2 teaspoons which is one serving size marked on the package. I figured it was 3 condiments because 3 g of carbs is the max we are allowed per day in condiments. If there is another package of Asian seasoning that has less carbs, feel free to use more seasoning. Also, you could always leave out the soy sauce and use 4 teaspoons of seasoning mix.
