Asian Turkey Lettuce Cups with Honey Sweetened Hoisin Sauce

Asian Turkey Lettuce Cups with Honey Sweetened Hoisin Sauce

You’ve probably seen variations of these Asian turkey lettuce cups everywhere, but have you found any that don’t use an already sweetened Hoisin sauce? Very few if any!! I was hesitant to make this because I wanted to be sure I could duplicate the Hoisin sauce needed to make this authentic. I’m super happy with this Honey Sweetened Hoisin sauce and you only need 2 tablespoons for this recipe so you’ll have plenty left over to use if for other Asian inspired recipes!

This recipe seriously takes NO time at all at the stove! You just cook up the ground turkey adding in the other ingredients and you.are.done. Seriously delicious and FAST!!
