Copy Cat PF Changs Lettuce Wraps

When Coulter was less than a year old I had my first taste of PF Chang’s lettuce wraps and let me tell you I was hooked!  I don’t even think I had a bite of my meal that we had ordered because I stuffed myself on the appetizer of lettuce wraps we had ordered.

PF Changs Lettuce Wraps

The fact that I live 200+ miles from a PF Changs which means I had to figure out a way to make these amazing lettuce wraps from home.  I think I have succeeded pretty good with these Copy Cat PF Changs Lettuce Wraps.  They may not be spot on but close enough for this rural area girl to be in lettuce wrap heaven!  Lettuce wraps are good on their own but there is just something about that dipping sauce that PF Changs lettuce wraps come with.  It puts this appetizer or dinner over the top!

    These looks so good. I love Chinese food. I could eat it every night. I especially like preparing it at home where I can control the quality of the ingredients and the amount of sugar, oil, and salt. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

    We tried making these before, but the lettuce our grocery store carried was horrible for this. Leaves were way too small and didn’t hold up.

    These look really good. I make a similar dish but it’s based off Thai cuisine and it’s called Larb Gai or Nam Tok. It’s basically Asian chicken salad but instead of lettuce I use cabbage because it doesn’t get soggy. You can also serve it on fresh cucumber slices which I just discovered a few months ago. It’s really awesome! I do look forward to adding some of the ingredients that you have in this recipe to my recipe.
