For Finishing

  • 1 cup Carrots shredded
  • 8 ounces (1 can) Water Chestnuts drained/chopped
  • 1/2 cup Scallions chopped
  • 1 head Butter, Bibb, Boston Lettuce leaves separated
  • 1 teaspoon Toasted Sesame Oil optional


  • Mix up the sauce ingredients and set it aside.
  • Select Sauté or Browning on your Pressure Cooker and allow to heat.
  • When hot, add olive oil and swirl to coat bottom of pot.  Add onions and ground chicken/turkey and mash the meat until crumbled.
  • Sauté until meat is browned and then drain out all liquid.  Add garlic and ginger and mix through.
  • Add half of the sauce and mix through.
  • Lock on lid and close pressure valve.  Cook at high pressure for 2 minutes. When beep sounds, wait 10 minutes and then release the rest of the pressure.
  • Select Sauté or Browning and simmer until all liquid has evaporated (or pour out extra), if needed.  Mix in the rest of the sauce to warm.
  • Turn off pressure cooker and dump in shredded carrots, water chestnuts, scallions and 1 teaspoon of Toasted Sesame Oil (if using). Mix through.
  • Spoon a few Tablespoons into each piece of lettuce.  If you want to eat them like I do, then take a second piece of lettuce and wrap like a burrito.  Yum!
