Sichaun Mushroom Lettuce Wraps

Author Notes: I cheat and use store bought sichaun sauce. If you don't want to buy duck sauce, you can use honey instead - it's how I make my sichaun beef!Ben Pagel

Serves: 4

  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil (or any vegetable oil)
  • 1/2 cup diced portobello mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup diced white onion
  • 1/2 cup diced orange bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup dry roasted unsalted peanuts (or any nut you want)
  • 1/4 cup sichaun sauce (I use House of Tsang Szechuan Spicy Stir Fry Sauce)
  • 1/4 cup duck sauce (I don't know what brand - they usually only have one kind at the store anyway)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion tops
  • 1 head of bibb lettuce
  1. Heat the sunflower oil in a pan over medium heat. Sautee the mushrooms, white onion, pepper, and peanuts until they're as soft as you like them. I generally wait until the onion is translucent and then cook about 2 more minutes for good measure.
  2. Add the sichaun and duck sauces. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, just so the sauces can incorporate into the other ingredients.
  3. Once everything is combined, add the green onions. They're better with a fresh, uncooked flavor.
  4. Separate the bibb lettuce leaves and use as bowls for spoonfuls of the mushroom mixture. Enjoy!
