Expert Tips

  • Have your ingredients ready before you heat up your wok, because once you start cooking, everything goes pretty quickly.
  • Serve these P.F. Chang’s™ lettuce wraps with a bowl of egg drop ramen soup or a plate of kimchi fries for the full P.F. Chang’s™ experience.
  • The best lettuce for making lettuce wraps are the flexible kinds. Use iceberg, Boston, green leaf or butter lettuce, as they’ll hold their shape as they are rolled up. Our favorite type is butter lettuce because not only do the leaves wrap nicely, but the flavor is mellow and almost sweet.
  • Lettuce wraps are a great option if you’re looking to cut down on carbs, and we have plenty more lettuce wrap recipes where this one came from.
