This recipe is originally from Let’s Enjoy Cooking, a cookbook written for busy people who live alone. Rich in flavour with the miso paste and dou-ban sauce, the meat sauce is a wonderful topping for rice. If you have the chance, please try to get some lettuce: it tastes even better when enveloped by crisp lettuce leaves. This idea of wrapping minced meat with lettuce is similar to the panfried duck meat mix (ya-song/鴨鬆) one would often get along with their order of Peking Duck at Chinese restaurants.
I used white miso paste for my version, but I can’t see why you can’t use other varieties of miso.
