Pineapple Beef Lettuce Wraps

  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp arrowroot starch
  • 1 tsp water


  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1.25lbs ground beef

  1. Mix all sauce ingredients, except for arrowroot and water, in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat a large pan on the stove, add oil, and then ground beef. Break the beef into small chunks.
  3. When the beef mostly cooked, but not all the way, add salt, to taste.
  4. Next, dump the onion and pineapple in the pan and cook until soft.
  5. While the pineapple and onions are cooking in the meat, heat the sauce in a small saucepan over medium/high heat.
  6. Let the sauce come to a light boil, then simmer for about 2 minutes, then turn the heat to low.
  7. Mix the arrowroot starch and water in a small bowl and then pour into the sauce.
  8. Stir for a minute or two, or until the sauce thickens.
  9. Serve the meat in individual lettuce leaves and top with the sauce, shredded carrots, cilantro, and extra lime.
