Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 cups shredded leftover cooked beef
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked couscous
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 8 Bibb or romaine lettuce leaves
Directions

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the sesame oil and heat. Add the cabbage and carrots and saute for 2 minutes. Add the beef and cook, stirring, until the beef is heated and the cabbage begins to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce and soy sauce and cook 5 minutes, until mixture heats through and cabbage wilts, stirring frequently.

Meanwhile, bring the water to a boil. Place the couscous in a heatproof bowl and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and curry powder. Pour the boiling water over the couscous and cover for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Spoon some of the beef into the center of each lettuce leaf and roll up. Serve with the couscous.
