        Directions

        SERVES 4; 25 MINUTES
        • Make the sauce. Combine the maple syrup, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes (if using) in a measuring cup. Whisk until combined. Add the arrowroot powder and whisk until well combined.
        • Heat olive oil in a 10” skillet over medium high heat until it shimmers. Add the ground beef and cook, stirring with a wood spoon to break up, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
        • Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring continuously, until very fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
        • Add the bell pepper and carrots and cook until bite tender, 3-4 minutes.
        • Pour the sauce over the skillet contents, then stir. Simmer until the sauce is slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed.
        • Stir in the sliced green onions.
        • Spoon the filling into lettuce wraps (with or without rice) and garnish with sesame seeds. Makes 8 wraps without rice, or 12 wraps with rice.
