Asian Jerk Meatball Wraps + Giveaway!

I can’t remember how old I was when I tried lettuce wraps for the first time. Maybe I was 8 or 9. It was some time when my big sister still lived at home. (Tangent: I never call my older siblings by their first name, they’re all big sister, big sister #2, and big brother to me. It comes with being the baby of the family.) I do, however, remember thinking this as I scooped spoonfuls of minced meat into my torn iceberg lettuce leaf: “My big sister is awesome! How did she even think of cooking something as unique as this?” As it turns out, she wasn’t quite the culinary genius I had pictured. She borrowed the idea from Martin Yan of Yan Can Cook fame. (That used to be my favorite cooking show and it always aired after Jacque Pepin.)
