Looking for a quick and easy way to feed your kids vegetables without the mess? This recipe for a turkey and green bean stir fry is perfect because the green beans are chopped so tiny that the kids can't pick them up and throw them around! Expert Food Blogger Joanne Choi also adds a lot of Asian flavors to make it sweet and salty that is pleasant for kids. They'll love it! This is a Grokker Premium video for the series, Easy Meals for the Busy Families.

Cooking Recipe

Serves: 4

3 tbsp grated ginger
3 tbsp minced garlic
2-3 tbsp of mild flavored oil (olive, canola, vegetable)
1.25 lbs ground turkey or ground chicken or ground pork
1/2 lb of french green beans (the skinny kind), cut into 1/2 inch pieces (or you can substitute 1 can of water chestnuts, chopped)
1/3 cup hoisin sauce (my preference is Lee Kum Kee Vegetarian which has NO artificial color in it)
2 tbsp oyster sauce

For wrapping:
1 bunch of romaine lettuce, leaves separated and washed
1/4 cup cilantro finely chopped
1 cup of cucumbers, diced (use Persian cucumbers, Japanese cucumbers or English cucumbers)
3 tbsp sambal oelek or chili garlic sauce (available at your local Chinese supermarket.)

Optional toppings:
1/4 cup of chopped peanuts
1/2 cup washed fresh mung bean sprouts

1. Heat a large fry pan/wok over medium high heat. Add oil, garlic, and ginger and cook for 1 minute. Add turkey/chicken/pork and cook until almost all cooked, about 2 minutes.

2. Add green bean pieces and continue cooking until green beans are tender, another 2-3 minutes. Add both 2 tbsp of oyster sauce and 1/3 cup of hoison sauce and continue cooking until all the sauce is combined with the green beans and turkey.

3. Place over rice and then topped with a sprinkling of cucumbers and cilantro. Mix it and serve. Alternatively, take one piece of romaine, and in it place a good heaping two tablespoons of turkey green bean filling.

4. Top with a sprinkling of cucumbers and cilantro. If spice is desired add just the tiniest dab of sambal oelek.
