Loved! Wonderful flavor and easy to make. Absolutely love the sweet/hot flavor but also added red pepper flakes for an extra kick.

We love lettuce wraps and this was a great new take on them. I was afraid they might be too salty but they were not - I would make sure to use reduced-sodium soy though.... These make really good lunch options too!
