Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray

14 cup sesame seeds

3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tsp brown sugar

14 tsp pepper

Dash red pepper flakes

1 tbsp grated fresh ginger

1 lb ground beef (10% fat)

4 garlic cloves, minced

8 green onions, sliced, tops included

1 cup chopped water chestnuts

2 tomatoes, chopped

1 cup chopped fresh cilantro

14 cup dry-roasted peanuts, unsalted

16 large lettuce leaves

34 cup brown rice, cooked according to directions without salt or fat

Directions

1. Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Place the skillet over medium-high heat and add sesame seeds. Cook 3 to 6 minutes, stirring often until sesame seeds are lightly browned and toasted. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

2. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, pepper, red pepper flakes, and ginger. Set aside.

3. Spray the large skillet again with nonstick cooking spray. Place the skillet over medium-high heat and add ground beef, garlic, and onions. Stir and cook 5 to 6 minutes or until beef is cooked through.

4. Add water chestnuts, toasted sesame seeds, and prepared soy sauce mixture. Stir and cook 1 to 2 minutes to heat through.

5. Serve small portions of beef mixture, tomatoes, cilantro, and peanuts rolled up in lettuce leaves over hot brown rice.
