I made mine with ground pork. Delicious!

I love love love this recipe. The ground beef smells amazing while it is cooking!!
This sounds similar to a dish that my Korean SIL makes, except hers has garlic cloves, mushrooms, and I think go-chu-jang (spicy Korean red sauce) in the lettuce leaves with the meat. Also, her meat is thinly sliced instead of gound. Delicious. I'm going to try this!!!

This was a favorite in our house!
This is very good! I'm just wondering about the nutritional facts? Where do the 4.5 grams of net carbs come from. Do the soy sauce and garlic really have that much?

A good base but needs the addition of vegetables like onions, water chestnuts, peppers, etc for some texture. Also good with shredded carrots on top.

This was great and is perfect for my low cal, low carb diet. I loved it. I used adobo, crushed red pepper flakes, a little onion and red bell pepper and skipped the garlic. The soy made it delicious. This is a new favorite for my diet. Thanks.
