These Thai-style lettuce wraps are delicious and bursting with flavor—a perfect combination of sweet, salty, tangy, spicy, and crunchy. Often made with ground pork or chicken, lean, nutrient-dense yak meat makes a wonderful substitute in this dish. (Don’t be afraid of yak—they are closely related to cows, and have a similar flavor profile.) This recipe works great for a weeknight family dinner or a weekend meal when entertaining guests.
Take your burger up a notch with this flavorful combination—the pepper crust gives just the right amount of zing to compliment the cheesy-bacon goodness. And don’t let the yak scare you, yak meat is lean and mild tasting, much like beef. It cooks quickly and tastes great. Everyone will love this delicious burger!
