San Choy Bow

Also known as lettuce cups. Super quick and easy to make dish. The combination of crunchy lettuce at sweet, salty minced meat is really yummy! You can be creative and add whatever veggie you like. Add this to your healthy meal plan (dahil alam kong marami ang may new year’s resolution na ‘I want to eat healthy this year’ 😁)

For the meat:
500g minced meat (I used chicken pero pwede din ang pork)
2 tbsp peanut oil (you can use cooking oil)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tbsp finely minced fresh ginger
2 tbsp hoisin sauce (I use Lee Kum Kee)
1 tsp oyster sauce
A pinch of ground pepper

Sauté garlic and ginger. Add the mince and stir fry until cooked through. Add hoisin and oyster sauce, mix and cook until sauce reduces slightly. Lastly, sprinkle the pepper before turning off heat.

Arrange minced into the iceberg lettuce and add your choice of veggies. Ang dinagdag ko on top is water chestnut (you can use singkamas if in season for additional crunch), red bell pepper, lychee (to add a bit of sweetness). Other ideas can be pineapple, diced cucumber, chili for a bit of kick etc. It’s really up to you 😊. The flavor of minced meat is versatile and blends well with any veggie or fruit.

Have you made this before? Ano po ang mga ginamit nyo na veggie/fruit? Let me know! 😊
