WHAT ARE P.F. CHANG’S LETTUCE WRAPS?

P.F. Chang’s China Bistro lettuce wraps are possibly one of their most popular dishes. They are listed on the menu under appetizers, but a stop through any of their restaurants will see them being delivered to almost every table.

The lettuce wraps are very simple. They consist of a mix of meat, spices, seasonings, and sauces that can easily be placed into a lettuce leaf and eaten. The wraps are light, yummy, and delicious.

WHAT IS P.F. CHANG’S CHINA BISTRO?

The chain was founded in 1993 by Paul Fleming and Philip Chiang – son of Cecilia Chiang. The first restaurant was opened at the Scottsdale Fashion Square in Scottsdale, Arizona. The chain specializes in American Chinese cuisine, plus other Asian dishes.

As of October 2017, P. F. Chang’s operated 208 restaurants in the United States and more than 100 in international markets.

The chain adopted a “made from scratch” food philosophy, meaning they use fresh ingredients and never use ingredients cooked ahead of time. This has helped them garner wide appeal as a fresh, new, and hip Chinese restaurant.

  5. Salt and pepper to taste
  6. Spoon a serving of the mixture onto the lettuce leaves and dig in!

USING OTHER TYPES OF MEAT FOR THIS RECIPE

One question often asked is “do I have to use chicken for this recipe or can I use something else?” Well, the good news is, you can choose different meat if you’d like.

Below are some ideas for you if you’re considering changing it up.

USING GROUND BEEF

Ground beef would be a logical “next step” if using chicken thighs aren’t for you. If you’d like to use it, simply cook and drain it first, before adding the sesame oil and the rest of the ingredients.

For the ground beef version, since beef has plenty of fat in it and you don’t need to lubricate the pan, the olive oil can be left out completely.

Cook the rest of the recipe as the instructions say and voila! You’re ready to eat!

USING GROUND CHICKEN

If you’d like to use ground chicken, follow all of the instructions as they are in the recipe card, including the olive oil. Ground chicken doesn’t have enough fat in it to cook without sticking, so the olive oil is a necessity.

Voila! Ground chicken lettuce wraps, ready to eat!

STORING P.F. CHANG’S KETO LETTUCE WRAPS

If you run into the issue that you have too much meat mixture leftover, you can store it for leftovers later on.

To store these leftovers, simply place them into a airtight storage container, such as a Pyrex rectangular storage dish. These glass storage containers are really nice because you can store, bake, reheat, or (basically) do whatever in them.

Refrigerate for up to four days after making them.

REHEATING THE LETTUCE WRAP MEAT MIXTURE

Reheating the lettuce wrap meat mixture is super easy, too. All you need to do is to pop whatever amount you’re planning to eat into the microwave and heat for thirty seconds to a minute.

Check to make sure the meat is warm enough, then spoon onto a lettuce leaf and enjoy!

If you prefer to warm your foods more slowly, such as on the stovetop or in the oven, opt for the oven on this one. Preheat your oven to 350˚F and place the mixture inside.

Stirring occasionally, heat for 5 – 10 minutes or until the mixture is heated through.

Using the oven heats the meat evenly and slowly, ensuring the meat doesn’t get tough from a faster cook, such as in the microwave.
