What lettuce should I use for lettuce wraps?

There are a variety of lettuce leaves you can use for lettuce wraps. ¬†I recommend lettuce which is crunchy and will hold food easily.¬† Butter lettuce, Iceberg lettuce, and Romain lettuce hearts work best, but any lettuce will work. ¬†I would stick to lettuce that won’t get too soggy and won’t break easily. Collard greens, endive, savoy cabbage, gem lettuce, and Bibb will also work.

Why is it easy to use an Instant Pot for Lettuce Wrap filling?

I love how an Instant Pot cooks up meat incredibly tender super fast!   Cooking meat in your Instant Pot makes shredded meat and ground meat dishes into super flavorful meals in under 30 minutes.

A few tips for cooking lettuce wraps in your Instant Pot.

  • Most meat mixtures will have an 8-12 minute cook time on high pressure.¬† You may want to use a lower cook time if your recipe contains vegetables.
  • Make sure You have at least one cup of water or liquid in your recipe.
  • Make sure your pressure release valve is sealing before you start pressure cooking your recipe.
  • After you steam release, hit “cancel” so your food doesn’t continue to cook after the pressure cooking is done.
  • You may want to saute garlic and onions before pressure cooking the rest of your recipe.
