From the Test Kitchen

Piled onto soft butter lettuce leaves, a savory filling of turkey, poblano pepper, and mushrooms come together with our umami-rich sauce, which combines peanut butter spread, sweet soy glaze, and spicy sambal. We're finishing each cup with crisp marinated cucumber and roasted peanuts for delightful crunch.

  • 2 cloves Garlic

Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the cucumber lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; separate the leaves. Roughly chop the peanuts. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a bowl, whisk together the peanut butter spread, soy glaze, half the vinegar, 2 teaspoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

In a bowl, combine the sliced cucumber and remaining vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the turkey; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 1/4 of the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the turkey is coated and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a large bowl.

In the pan of reserved fond, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and sliced pepper; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat.
