1¼ lb 96% lean ground beef (or any ground meat you prefer)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup onion, roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic, diced
1-inch piece of ginger, diced
¾ cup water chestnuts, roughly chopped
5 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
roughly chopped peanuts
toasted sesame seeds
chopped green onion
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan. Add in the ground beef and break it apart with a cooking spoon into smaller pieces. Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook till no longer pink. Set aside on a separate plate.
In the same pan, cook the onion, garlic, and ginger for 3-4 minutes. Add the meat and water chestnuts into the pan.
Stir in the hoisin sauce and soy sauce and cook everything together for a few minutes.
To serve, place the meat mixture in the lettuce cups and top with shredded carrots, peanuts, sesame seeds, green onion, and extra hoisin sauce.
