  1. This recipe is really, really good. I can’t wait to make it again. I’ve been dreaming about it ever since I made it.

  2. The recipe looks delicious. How big is a serving?

  3. This recipe is seriously delicious! Mine became a lettuce bowl rather than wraps, but still wonderful, and so pretty to look at. Posted a photo to your FB page.

  4. We really enjoyed this! We made with ground pork (my husband is allergic to beef). Great, easy weekday meal.

    We loved this, especially since it was so fast. Next time we’ll do ground pork and the gourmet mushroom blend (this recipe is just begging for shitakes!) and some Chinese hot mustard (if it’s paleo, of course). Otherwise a really solid weeknight meal! Fantastic!

  6. Where can I find Red boat fish sauce?

  7. Yummy!! Going to add some water chestnuts next time.
