Your rating: None Average: 4 (437 votes)

Based on a popular Chinese dish, these fun wraps also make appealing appetizers for entertaining. Make it a meal: Serve with chile-garlic sauce and rice vinegar for extra zip; toss diced mango and strawberries with lime juice for a quick dessert.

Needs hot sauce and increased hoisin

As written the recipe is a bit heavy on the 5-spice and needs at least twice as much hoisin sauce and a teaspoon at least of hot sauce (I used Sriracha).

Gluten-free, dairy-free, quick, easy

For a hard to please family

I did not use the five spices either but just improvised and threw in fresh basil and garlic, garlic powder. I did use extra Hoisin sauce (double) and topped with Sriracha. It had a great flavor!

crowd pleasing recipe minus five spice

The meal was easy, from start to dining, 20 minutes, I added diced carrots, celery and onions to the mixture. I love the idea of the lettuce wraps but was not a fan of the five spice. I love Asian cuisine but did not like the five spice powder. Next time I would use the ginger, hoisin sauce, maybe some teriyaki to add flavor instead of the five spice.

Easy to pull together, crowd pleasing.

Missing something

This recipe is seriously lacking something. I can't put my finger on it, but adding soy sauce helped. It needs more moisture and my husband said the 5-spice blend gave him a headache because it smelled so bad when it was cooking. I wont make this again.
