Make this meal kid friendly!
I know, I know, lettuce wraps are really not a kid friendly meal no matter how fun it is to eat them with your hands. So what I do is make a side of rice, and serve my kids this meal on top of rice in a new Asian Ground Beef Bowl topped with some cool and creamy Yum Yum Sauce.
