Peanut Sauce:


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, sambal oelek, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes for sauce together in a small bowl. Whisk in small amount of water slowly until well combined and you reach your desired consistency. Set aside.

  • Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Brown the ground beef, green onions, and garlic for about 5 minutes. Stir in rice vinegar, sambal oelek, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Divide the ground beef mixture evenly among the 12 cabbage leaves. Top each with a dollop of the peanut sauce, a squeeze of a lime wedge, and sprinkle with peanuts. Fold up the sides of the leaves and serve.

Cook's Notes:

You may use large cabbage or romaine leaves for the wraps. If you have peanut sauce left over, just mix it into hot pasta for a delicious side dish, or drizzle over tofu or grilled chicken.

As an option to whisking the sauce, you also may put the ingredients into a mini blender/food processor, and give it a whirl. If too thick for you, just add a bit more water. Set aside.
