Well, it’s been a long time coming but I’ve finally figured it out, the perfect meatless copy of the P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps.
If you have never had the P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps you’re missing out, they are the dish that pretty much put that restaurant on the map, and for good reason, they’re absolutely delicious.
Now, to pull back the curtain a little, I actually worked at P.F. Chang’s for a long time, years in fact, so I’ve eaten my share of the lettuce wraps and trust me, this recipe comes extremely close to the original. But guess what?? It’s completely meatless!
P.F. Chang’s actually has tofu lettuce wraps but these are totally different because they are meant to literally mimic the ground meat in the original. What you do here is take a brick of tofu and crumble it until it resembles the consistently of ground chicken.
Overall, this recipe is incredibly simple. It can be made in one pan and takes 30 minutes to cook. Most of the ingredients on here that you may not be used to cooking with like water chestnuts, hoisin sauce, and rice vinegar, can be easily found in the ethnic isle of any grocery store.
Also, I used butter lettuce instead of iceberg because it still has a delicious crunch, but a slightly softer texture which makes it easier to handle and roll into a wrap.
Finally, this recipe is amazing topped with a Sriracha mayonnaise sauce which can easily be thrown together by combining mayonnaise, Sriracha, lime juice and scallions and whisking. It’s creamy, tangy and spicy! Yum!
