Asian Ground Beef, Mushroom, and Broccoli Slaw Lettuce Cups

This is a very easy recipe that I took from nom nom paleo.  If have soy sensitivity be careful to use coconut aminos versus soy.

Asian Beef Cups


1 pound ground meat

1 pound thinly sliced mushrooms

1 small onion, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons of lard

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1-2 cups of organic slaw

1/2 cup of shredded carrots

2 scallions, thinly sliced

One handful of cilantro, thinly sliced

1-2 tablespoons of fish sauce

1-2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1-2 tablespoons of aminos (use coconut if you are going paleo)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


1.) Finely chop onion in food processor, then put in skillet with lard and saute on medium heat until translucent.

2.) Add sliced mushrooms and some salt/pepper to skillet.  Cook until excess mosture is cooked off. 

3.) Add minced garlic and stir everything for 30 seconds.

4.) Add ground beef, stir until there are no big clumps and the beef is no longer pink. 

5.) Add equal amounts of fish sauce, apple cider, and aminos and top with black pepper.

6.) Once everything seems cooked and seasoned (you might want to taste), add slaw and shredded carrots.  Stir everything around until veggies are soft.

7.) Spoon the beef and veggie mixture onto lettuce leaves.

8.) Enjoy!
