Tips & Tricks:

  • This makes good leftovers. Just store the lettuce and meat separate, and microwave the meat.
  • If you like it spicy you can throw the chili paste and spicy mustard in while the meat is cooking.
  • If it tastes bland you weren’t generous enough with the sauces–add more.
  • If it tastes too salty you were too generous–add some lime and some more meat.
  • Best served with Egg Rolls.
