I love so many Asian flavors and textures, and this dish is no exception. This recipe contains a blend of ground pork and chicken; alternatively, you could use all chicken, all pork, or all beef. (That said, I do prefer the flavor that’s derived from using half pork and half chicken.) The addition of shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, bean sprouts, and lettuce adds refreshing textural elements and enhances the dish’s flavor profile. This can also be served as an appetizer. — Chef Jason Roberts, Good Food Fast.
