Jutta from Hungry Little Girl contacted me awhile back asking if I'd like to participate with her and other bloggers in a "Surprise Recipe Swap". Each month we are assigned a different blog to chose a recipe from, then we cook it, and post about on our blog. I was super excited to participate and couldn't wait to get started.
This month I was matched up with Jutta and her awesome blog, Hungry Little Girl. I just love browsing through her recipes and after much consideration, I ended up choosing her recipe for Korean Ground Beef Lettuce Wraps!
Let me say, I absolutely loved this recipe and was so glad I tried it! The flavors were delicious and it is such a quick and easy meal. I love that the ground beef and rice are wrapped up in the lettuce leaf. The lettuce adds such a perfect crunch when biting into it! This is something I would definitely make again!
If you'd like to join the fun and participate in the Surprise Recipe Swap, please visit Jutta's blog for more info. You can also find the sign up form there by clicking the button below!

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and garlic over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Add the sesame oil, chili powder, brown sugar, ginger and soy sauce. Simmer for 5-7 minutes. Serve with the rice rolled inside the lettuce leaves.
