Swirl the pan to spread the oil. Next would be the minced garlic. Sauté it until fragrant. Then add the red onions. Sauté it for one to two minutes or you can wait until it's translucent. Then add your sliced mushrooms. Sauté it until it's tender.

Now that the ground beef is already cooked, we can add our seasonings, Kikkoman Soy Sauce and then our hoisin sauce. Now mix it until it's fully combined. Finally we can add our shredded carrot. Mix it again.
Cooking is done so we're ready to have the plating. Now we're going to do our plating, so prepare your lettuce wrap and your ground beef filling. Using a spoon, fill each lettuce wrap with the cooked ground beef, so you can add one to two tablespoon or depending on your preference. You have to make sure that your lettuce is clean and washed. Spread it out evenly.
So that's it, you already have your Healthy Asian Lettuce Wrap. Now that you're ready to eat your Healthy Asian Lettuce Wrap, you can top it with spring onions upon serving. Now we're ready to eat our Healthy Asian Lettuce Wrap.
