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
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.)
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.
