Total Time



1/3 cup water

1/4 cup hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons oyster sauce

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons cornstarch

2 teaspoons sesame oil


1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup chopped red and/or green bell pepper

1/4 cup chopped onion

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic

1 (8-ounce) can bamboo shoots, chopped

1 (8-ounce) can water chestnuts, chopped

1 (3.5-ounce) package shiitake mushrooms, chopped

1 cup coleslaw mix


24 Bibb lettuce leaves

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all sauce ingredients in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes or until thickened and heated through. Cool to room temperature.

  2. STEP 2

    Melt butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add red pepper, onion, and garlic. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes or until onion is softened. Add bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, and mushrooms; continue cooking until heated through. Add coleslaw mix; continue cooking until cabbage is wilted.

  3. STEP 3

    To serve, spread about 2 teaspoons sauce onto 1 lettuce leaf; top with 2 tablespoons filling mixture. Roll up lettuce leaf. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Tip #1

Rather than making individual wraps, serve filling, sauce and lettuce leaves in separate containers. This will allow guests to make their own lettuce wraps.

Tip #2

Recipe Tip

Tip #3

Use Bibb or Boston lettuce to roll up this oriental vegetable filling because it is not as crisp and will roll up easily.
