Today, I’m participating in the Over-Used Recipe Swap over at Simply Modern Mom! My tried and true recipe is Moo Shoo Beef Lettuce Cups. It’s a Weight Watchers recipe that we probably eat once a week. I don’t even have to look it up anymore. It’s SO good and only 4 points per serving!. It’s easy to make on a busy weeknight and it’s also perfect when you’ve got friends over. In fact, I think we’re having this tonight!
Moo Shu Beef Lettuce Cups
1 spray cooking spray
1 pound uncooked lean ground beef (with 7% fat)
1 cup onion, yellow, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp ginger root, fresh, minced
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
2 cups bok choy, thinly sliced
1 medium sweet red pepper, thinly sliced
2 cups button mushrooms, thinly sliced (about 10 mushrooms)
2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
8 leaf bibb lettuce (I usually use butter lettuce because it’s easier for me to find.)
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set pan over medium-high heat. Add beef, onion, ginger and garlic; cook until beef is browned and onion is soft, breaking up meat as it cooks, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Add bok choy, pepper, mushrooms and soy sauce; cook, stirring occasionally, until bok choy is wilted and pepper is tender-crisp, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Spoon about 1/2 cup of beef mixture into each lettuce leaf. Yields 2 filled leaves per serving. Serve with extra soy sauce if desired.
That’s it! So easy and SO good! Enjoy!
