Enjoy Asian cuisine at home without slaving over the stove. This recipe for Kung Pao Lettuce Wraps with Turkey is simmered in your slow cooker all day, blending the flavors to perfection.
I’ve been slightly obsessed with lettuce wraps ever since. Well about a month ago, I decided I wanted some Lettuce Wraps again for our Sunday dinner. But I really didn’t want to be in the kitchen a lot either, so I decided to toss it in the slow cooker in the morning. By the time we got home in the evening, our house was smelling fantastic, and all I had to do was pull out the lettuce.
Mark loved them! The kids loved them. It was a fantastic meal all around. Fast forward, and I wanted to make some lettuce wraps again this last week. I’ve been eyeing the P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu Sauces for quite some time, and finally decided they needed to make an appearance in our dinner. I headed out to Meijer where I knew I could find all my ingredients. Since we’re cooking easy, I also picked up a can of RO*TEL® Tomatoes with Green Chilies. When I’m simmering in the slow cooker, I find a can of RO*TEL is easier to use and provides the same flavors as if I went through all the work of chopping and dicing fresh.
You know we love Asian cuisines around here, and P.F. Chang’s knows how to create the perfect sauces. Do you know their secret? It’s cornstarch! No crazy chemicals, just good old-fashioned, found in every home cooks pantry – cornstarch. This helps the sauce stick right to your food, so you don’t lose any of the flavors. Reading the label – because I read labels like crazy these days – and I know every ingredient on their list.
8 Ingredients is all it takes for these Slow Cooker Kung Pao Lettuce Wraps. I like to use turkey as it is a bit healthier for you, and I kind of have a freezer full of it – another post for another day. All you have to do is toss everything in your slow cooker, set it to low, and then go enjoy your family for the day. Then come home in the evening, and sit down to a delicious Asian meal that you barely lifted a finger for.
