Hello everyone, I have a new favorite in my rotation and it's some sweet potato lettuce wraps.  Most recipes call for garlic and onion but I'm getting the same effect with a leek.

 
BP Lettuce Wraps

 
Ingredients


  • 1lb Ground beef
  • 1 Leek (chopped very fine)
  • 1 Large sweet potato (Chopped fine)
  • 1 large head of lettuce
  • 1 tbsp BP Cooking fat (I used coconut oil and mct)
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1.75 tsp Cumin (ground)
  • 1/3 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp Salt to taste

Toppings


  • Avocado (Chopped)
  • Cilantro (Chopped Fine)
  • 1 Lime sliced in wedges
  • Chopped Tomato (optional)
  • Olives (optional)​
  • Place cooking fat on a pan with low-medium heat and add leeks and sweet potatoes, cover, stirring occasionally and cook for 10 minutes.
  • In separate pan add 1/2 inch thick of water and place heat a little over low  Add ground beef and spread around to cook evenly.  Cover and cook for 10 minutes flipping meat half way through.
  • After 10 minutes drain almost all water from ground beef pan and add salt and spices and stir well.
  • Then add sweet potato-leek mix to the ground beef, cover and cook on low stirring frequently for 3-5 more minutes or just until meat has barely any pink left.
  • With a slotted spoon, place meat mixture on top of rinsed and dried lettuce leaves.
  • Add chopped toppings, then squeeze lime on top and enjoy! :)

Tips: ​


  • Drizzle MCT oil on top of your meat right before you add toppings and on a side note have napkins around cause it's juicy.
  • I chopped my leeks and sweet potato as follows for it to be easy;  I sliced the base of my leek off and then the top half of the green. I then sliced the leek into 4.  I dropped the leek slices into my Vitamix and chopped it very fine.  I then added peeled and sliced sweet potatoes and chopped them until fine.  I then used a spatula to take it out of the blender straight onto the pan in step 1.
