Primal Thai Beef

The beef and vegetable mixture:
1 lb ground beef
1 red or yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
1 small red onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced

The sauce:
3 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper

For garnish:
½ cup cilantro
2 green onions, sliced
12 romaine lettuce leaves

Brown the beef in a large skillet.  When the beef is about halfway done, add the vegetables and cook until beef is cooked through and peppers are tender-crisp.
Meanwhile, mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl.
When the beef mixture is done cooking, add in the sauce and mix together.  Spoon onto romaine lettuce leaves and top with green onion and cilantro

I have to say this really surpassed my expectations. It's the sauce ingredients that make it so good. I've also been adding liver to every recipe that uses ground beef,  it adds extra nutrition and you can't taste it at all.
