Ji Song ~ 鸡松 ~ a Chinese Hors d'oeuvre ~ Chicken Lettuce Wrap ~ Method #2

This is one of my favorite dishes, but it is often sooo over-priced at restaurants and really, it's quite simple to make at home . . .

Method #2 allows you to "cook" even on hot days without the oven or stove! It's on my "too hot to cook" menu!

Ingredients:
3-5 green onions, finely sliced
1/2 cup celery (diced, optional)
1 can water chestnuts (diced, optional)
2 lbs. ground turkey, chicken, or pork
2 1/2 tsp. Demarle At Home Herb Blend (of choice ~ I prefer something w/garlic in it.)
1/2 tsp. salt
4 cups steamed white rice (optional)
1 or 2 heads of lettuce of choice
Hoisin Sauce
Cilantro for garnish (optional)

Method #2:
Put first six ingredients in Round Mold and cover with Octagonal Silpat. Microwave on High for 2 min.




Take it out and break it up with spatula. Put back in (with octagonal silpat) for another minute.












Take it out, break it up, and put it back in for another minute.












Take it out, break it up and put it back in for another minute.












Take it out, break it up and put it back in for another minute (or two). Repeat until "browned" enough for your taste.











Squeeze mold to drain out grease.












Note: you can make steamed rice in the microwave using your Round Mold (any size) and Octagonal Silpat!

Spoon rice onto lettuce leaf, then a layer of meat mixture, and top off with a drizzle of hoisin sauce and garnish with cilantro. Enjoy!

This is a great method to use when making ground beef for tacos . . .
