    Susie D's Note:

    This is a tasty under 30 minute meal perfect for a busy day and made with ingredients usually on hand. The recipe serves the meat mixture in pitas, but flour tortillas or lettuce wraps would be a good choice too. The recipe is from Family Circle magazine.

      Very easy (but lots of slicing!) and very satisfying. This recipe has one foot in Europe and one in Southeast Asia, but the combination works. Specifying Romaine lettuce struck me as culturally out of place, but I would not change it: the distinctive flavor of Romaine was one of the important notes in the whole mix. You can even wrap some of the meat mixture in a lettuce leaf and eat that, taco-style, without the pita! We loved it. Made for ZWT9 Family Picks.

      This was very good and oh-so-easy to make! I ate it with some thai noodles (recipe #4131220) and it was delicious! Made for ZWT9.

      Great flavorful recipe! I left out the onions and cilantro, otherwise made as directed. Loved the lime in the peanut sauce and the crushed red pepper - great flavor combination. Great in a pita and as a lettuce wrap - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2013
