Healthy Beef San Choy Bow

What is San Choy Bow?

In Cantonese, the word ‘Sang Choi’ translates to lettuce and the word ‘Bao’ means to wrap. So San Choy Bow or San Choy Bau means ‘lettuce wrap’ and it’s one of my all-time favorite Chinese starters that just happens to be healthy and delicious. 

San Choy Bow is a Chinese starter consisting of pork, chicken, or beef, loads of hidden crunchy vegetables in a tasty savory brown sauce bundled up fresh lettuce leaves.  It’s a fantastic mid-week go-to meal that ticks all the boxes and takes next to no time to make.

My Healthy Beef San Choy Bow packs a flavor punch using delicious beef mince and ingredients you can get from any market, all wrapped up in a refreshing lettuce leaf.

Sometimes all you want is a tasty quick, easy, and healthy mid-week meal that doesn’t break the bank.
