Asian Lettuce Wraps
Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker (see Tip). Place meat in the cooker. In a medium bowl, combine jicama, green onions, vinegar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, salt, chili oil and pepper. Pour over meat in cooker.Advertisement
Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and cold water. Stir cornstarch mixture into liquid around the meat. Cover; cook about 15 minutes more or until thickened.
Remove meat from cooker. Using two forks, shred meat. Return meat to cooker. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture onto each lettuce leaf. Fold bottom edge of each lettuce leaf up and over filling. Fold in opposite sides; roll up from bottom.
Tip: For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
