Chiang Mai Beef Lettuce Wraps

A couple weeks ago a friend sent me this recipe for Chiang Mai Beef Lettuce Wraps – the best part was the recipe card was worn because it had been used weekly for years by her family! Passed down through several people to her, and used over and over.  You know that recipe is a keeper.

Not only is the recipe full of fresh flavors but it is so stinking easy. Ground beef, fresh herbs and spices, some simple rice, and large lettuce leaves. Even my kids loved it wrapped up in lettuce! We only used the spicy sauce for the adults but man it added so much flavor.  

Please go make these Chiang Mai Beef Lettuce Wraps! You’ll love them.

Chiang Mai Beef Lettuce Wraps



  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 c. thinly sliced green onion
  • 2-3 tsp. ground coriander
  • 3 tbsp. mint leaves, chopped fine or crushed
  • 4 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/4 c. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder

Coconut Rice

  • 1 c. coconut milk
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 c. jasmine rice

Sriracha Mayo (can you plain sriracha also)

  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 c. sriracha sauce (can adjust to how spicy you like it)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar

For Serving

  • large lettuce leaves
  • sliced red peppers
  • any other fresh veggies (carrots, onions)
  • extra mint and green onion for garnish


  • If making the sriracha mayo, combine ingredients with a whisk. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Begin by cooking rice. Combine coconut milk, water, and rice in a large pot. Heat to a simmer, then stir, cover, and reduce heat to low. Keep covered and cook until fluffy, about 15-20 minutes.
  • In a wok or frying pan, brown beef and drain fat.
  • Add in the rest of the beef ingredients and simmer for 5-6 minutes, until all ingredients are well combined.
  • To serve, scoop rice onto large lettuce leaves. Scoop beef on top of rice. Top with sriracha or sriracha mayo. Roll up to eat, and enjoy!
