This unique recipe for Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps is brought to us from the Cooking Channel's chef Ben Sargent of Hook, Line, and Dinner. Sargent and GE engineer Justin Berger took a road trip together, crossing 2,000 miles to Texas to bring some fresh food to a wildlife biologist. Sargent selected the finest of local ingredients from alligator farms, ranches, farm stands, and dairy along the way.
You don't have to travel cross-country for some of his dishes, though, you're now able to create one in your own kitchen.
Feel free to substitute almond butter for peanut butter.
