Lettuce Sandwiches
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

1 pound ground meat (chicken, pork, or beef) (I used ground chicken breast)
1 small onion, cut in half then sliced
4 large cloves of garlic, minced
Salt and pepper
Soy sauce
1 bouillon cube
Vegetable cooking oil
Green leaf lettuce, red leaf lettuce, or iceberg lettuce
1 tablespoon mustard powder
1/2 tablespoon water

Add 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to the ground meat in a bowl. Combine.  Set aside.

Mix mustard powder and 1/2 tablespoon water. Set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon cooking oil in a large skillet. Fry the onions until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. If needed, add another tablespoon oil. Add the meat and cook, turning frequently, until no longer pink. Add the bouillon cube and 1/4 cup water. Add soy sauce to taste.

Serve warm with lettuce. Spoon a bit of meat into a lettuce leaf. Sprinkle on some soy sauce and mustard to taste. Fold and eat!
