  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey 85% lean
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1 large stalk celery diced
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tablespoon ginger fresh-grated
  • 2 tablespoons tamari sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken bone broth can substitute water
  • 8 butter lettuce leaves large leaves
  • 1/2 small red onion thinly sliced, for garnish
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons roasted unsalted peanuts, for garnish
  • 1 pinch Crushed red pepper flakes for garnish (optional)


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the turkey, onion, and celery, and cook until the meat is browned and the vegetables are tender, about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring, occasionally.
  • Add the garlic and ginger, and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add the tamari sauce, vinegar, sugar, chili garlic sauce, fish sauce, and water. Bring up to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, until the liquid is mostly evaporated, about 10 minutes.
  • To serve, divide the meat between the 8 lettuce cups. Top each with red onion, cilantro, peanuts, and crushed red pepper flakes.


If you want this recipe even lower in carbs you can omit the 1 tablespoon of coconut sugar and replace it with either 5 drops of stevia extract or 1 teaspoon of Lakanto golden monk fruit blend.
