Kitchen Adventures: Crispy Beef Lettuce Wraps

This was our first Gordon Ramsay Ultimate Cookery Course recipe. Delicious with a capital D.
Ingredients: Ground Beef, Ground Pork, Garlic, Red Chilies, Brown Sugar, Fish Sauce, Lime, Green Onions, Gem Lettuce, Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce and Cilantro
So very good... I was a little wary because you make a sauce out of sesame oil, fish and soy sauce, cilantro and red chili. I tasted the sauce on its own and it wasn't very good... But once you put a little of the crispy beef in a cold lettuce leaf and drizzle on a small amount of the sauce.... AMAZING. One of the best dishes we have ever made. We paired it with an "easy" fried rice that was chock-full of veggies. I don't have a calorie count for this one since it's a Gordon Ramsey recipe but similar dishes are around 600-800. That would be with a large portion of rice. Something to note... the dish is a little on the rich side... SO much flavor. It won't go into our regular rotation but I can't wait to have it again!
