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

This was great! Made it just as is but with no cilantro (just because I hate it) and used a bag of frozen peppers and onions instead of fresh. Easy and yummy! Gets 5 stars from me!! Thanks SusieD

This is a 5+ star recipe because the flavor is outstanding! We served them in pitas but it would be fantastic in lettuce or just on rice. It is jumping right into my Best of 2010 cookbook! Made for ZWT #6 and I'm a Quisine Queen.

Will make this again! Something different and quick to fix for dinner. Everyone in my family gobbled this up including the boys who don't eat red bell peppers. Don't sub the red peppers, by the way. They're a wonderful addition for color, taste, and nutrition, with just the right amount of sweetness. I used extra fresh minced ginger and garlic. Honestly, I wasnt sure I'd like ground beef instead of something like flank steak, but it was very good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I thought this was really good, but DH and DS didn't like the peanut butter. I only put in 1 T of PB because I thought that would happen. I also used thin strips of leftover steak instead of ground beef and matchstick-size carrots instead of peppers. No one here likes peppers. Served on tortillas. Next time - no PB.

It's been a while I wanted to try this recipe. I was reticent to try peanut butter in it but it has a nice taste. I used italian parsley instead of cilantro. This is very good and I'll do it again cause it's so easy and a great meal. It could be great also with rice. Thanks Susie :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT
