Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (95% lean)
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium or regular soy sauce
  • Black pepper
  • 8 large lettuce leaves (such as Bibb, leaf or iceberg)
  • 3/4 cup sliced water chestnuts
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots
Wowee Sauce:
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple in juice, drained
  • 1/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium or regular soy sauce

Cooking:

  1. Combine Wowee Sauce ingredients in small bowl. Set aside.

  2. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into small crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings, if necessary. Add green onions and soy sauce; season with pepper, as desired. Cook and stir for 1 minute.
