Weeping Tiger Beef Lettuce Wraps


This is my twist to the famous weeping tiger beef. You can make it a complete meal by including the garlic fried rice or you could make it low carb by omitting it. Just don’t omit the sauce. This sauce is a total game changer. I literally can eat this by the spoonful. I’m so in love with the sauce that i always make a double batch and eat it with prawn chips. Please do share your thoughts with me if you do make it. I’d love to hear from you. Share your thoughts and remakes with me on Instagram @sliceofgour
