Serves:
6


Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 pounds ground veal

  • 3/4 cup peanut sauce

  • 2 cups chopped seeded cucumber

  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot

  • 1/4 cup torn fresh mint

  • 12 large Boston lettuce leaves (about 2 heads)

  • fresh mint (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground veal; cook 10 to 13 minutes, breaking into 3/4 inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings, if necessary. Stir in peanut sauce; cook and stir until heated through.

  2. Combine cucumber, carrot and torn mint with veal mixture. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve veal mixture in lettuce leaves. Garnish with mint, if desired.


Chef’s Tip: *Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground veal. Ground veal should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground veal doneness. Iceberg or romaine lettuce leaves may be substituted for Boston lettuce leaves.
