Asian Lettuce Wraps

I think of lettuce wraps as little Asian tacos.  And rather than serve them as an appetizer like they do in restaurants, I like to serve them up as the main course.  We have had these several times over the years and they are always so very good! 

1lb. ground beef
1 TBSP olive oil
1/2c onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 TBSP soy sauce
1/4c hoisin sauce
2tsp. fresh ginger, minced
1 TBSP rice wine vinegar
1 tsp. Asian chili sauce
1/4c green onions, chopped
1-2 tsp. dark sesame oil
whole lettuce leaves
1.  In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef in olive oil.  Remove from skillet, drain if necessary, and set aside.
2.  To the skillet, add the onion and cook for a about a minute or so, stirring frequently.
3.  Add the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar, and chili sauce and stir to combine.
4.  Add the  green onions, sesame oil, and cooked beef and heat through.
5.  Serve with the lettuce leaves.

I like to just put it out on the table like this so
 everyone can make their own.
(Also, once again, I used Match ground beef.)
